The Righteous Wait On God
You will keep in perfect peace him whose mind is steadfast, because he trusts in you.
Isaiah saw a future time when God’s judgment
will come upon the earth. But rather than
striking fear into the hearts of God’s people, this coming judgment should cause them to rejoice and be glad as they wait for God to act. How can they rejoice knowing that judgment is coming? Because God’s people trust Him to judge the world rightly and to care for His own graciously. Most people have experienced the nervousness of taking an important test. It could be an entrance exam to get into a training program, a final exam for a college course, or a medical test that will reveal an important diagnosis. But what can be even tougher than taking the test is the time between the test and getting the results. Why? One word- uncertainty.
Isaiah tells us that our minds can be at ease, that we can be kept in perfect peace if we trust in the Lord through the tests He allows in our lives. This trust is based on certainty-certainty that He cares for us and is capable of taking care of us, certainty in the outcome of human history and the Lord’s ultimate control of our world.
