Rooted in life-giving miracles? (Isaiah 50:4-5, Isaiah 50:10-51:3)

Haddon Willmer, 13 June 2010
Part of the Comfort ?! A series on Isaiah 40 – 55 series, preached at a Sunday Morning service

We continue the series on: Comfort!? A series on Isaiah 40-55

The experience of being in Exile is to find ourselves forcibly removed from all that is safe and familiar. It is a disorientating experience that touches every area of life. In the midst of this Isaiah speaks from God. Through imagination and searching he helps looks at God, ourselves, others and the important things of life and faith. As we look back then we can trace how this has echoed for Christians through history and for us today.

Isaiah 50:4–5 (Listen)

  The Lord GOD has given me
    the tongue of those who are taught,
  that I may know how to sustain with a word
    him who is weary.
  Morning by morning he awakens;
    he awakens my ear
    to hear as those who are taught.
  The Lord GOD has opened my ear,
    and I was not rebellious;
    I turned not backward.


Isaiah 50:10–51:3 (Listen)

10   Who among you fears the LORD
    and obeys the voice of his servant?
  Let him who walks in darkness
    and has no light
  trust in the name of the LORD
    and rely on his God.
11   Behold, all you who kindle a fire,
    who equip yourselves with burning torches!
  Walk by the light of your fire,
    and by the torches that you have kindled!
  This you have from my hand:
    you shall lie down in torment.

51:1   “Listen to me, you who pursue righteousness,
    you who seek the LORD:
  look to the rock from which you were hewn,
    and to the quarry from which you were dug.
  Look to Abraham your father
    and to Sarah who bore you;
  for he was but one when I called him,
    that I might bless him and multiply him.
  For the LORD comforts Zion;
    he comforts all her waste places
  and makes her wilderness like Eden,
    her desert like the garden of the LORD;
  joy and gladness will be found in her,
    thanksgiving and the voice of song.
