Restoration

For everything that was written in the past was written to teach us, so that through the endurance taught in the Scriptures and the encouragement they provide we might have hope. Romans

Comments, thoughts and reflections welcome.

Isaiah 11:12-16

 He will raise a signal for the nations

and will assemble the banished of Israel,

and gather the dispersed of Judah

from the four corners of the earth.

 The jealousy of Ephraim shall depart,

and those who harass Judah shall be cut off;

Ephraim shall not be jealous of Judah,

and Judah shall not harass Ephraim.

 But they shall swoop down on the shoulder

 of the Philistines in the west,

and together they shall plunder the people of the east.

They shall put out their hand against

Edom and Moab,

and the Ammonites shall obey them.

 And the LORD will utterly destroy

the tongue of the Sea of Egypt,

and will wave his hand over the River

with his scorching breath,

and strike it into seven channels,

and he will lead people across in sandals.

 And there will be a highway from Assyria

for the remnant that remains of his people,

as there was for Israel

when they came up from the land of Egypt.

We have the restoration of Israel before us.  And the blessing of the Lord returns to them.  We can learn from this the truth that the Lord will always restore his own and return his blessing to them.  We may find ourselves in the midst of a judgment that consists simply of the consequences that follow actions.  We have this truth that when we humbly seek the face of God, he restores us and returns His blessings to us.
