TEXT: Isaiah 42:10-17(NKJV)

42:10. Sing to the LORD a new song, [And] His praise from the ends of the earth, You who go down to the sea, and all that is in it, You coastlands and you inhabitants of them!

42:11. Let the wilderness and its cities lift up [their voice,] The villages [that] Kedar inhabits. Let the inhabitants of Sela sing, Let them shout from the top of the mountains.

42:12. Let them give glory to the LORD, And declare His praise in the coastlands.

42:13. The LORD shall go forth like a mighty man; He shall stir up [His] zeal like a man of war. He shall cry out, yes, shout aloud; He shall prevail against His enemies.

42:14. " I have held My peace a long time, I have been still and restrained Myself. [Now] I will cry like a woman in labor, I will pant and gasp at once.

42:15. I will lay waste the mountains and hills, And dry up all their vegetation; I will make the rivers coastlands, And I will dry up the pools.

42:16. I will bring the blind by a way they did not know; I will lead them in paths they have not known. I will make darkness light before them, And crooked places straight. These things I will do for them, And not forsake them.

42:17. They shall be turned back, They shall be greatly ashamed, Who trust in carved images, Who say to the molded images, 'You [are] our gods.'


STUDY: Yesterday, we learnt of the Servant of God whom He sent to bring justice, redemption and righteousness. The personality of the Servant and the work He came to do are such that they evoke a new song of praise. This song of praise is to be sung by all (including the gentiles and the coastlines) who have been touched by the work of the Servant! Thus, today you can sing and praise the Lord (God's Servant) for the victory over the flesh, the world and Satan. The Lord shall prevail against His enemies and is committed to bringing justice with energy. He isn't passive or dispassionate in His judgment. When He sets things right on the earth, He does it with zeal. His first coming was meek and lowly; the second coming will be loud and demonstrative!

Jesus is working and no obstacle can get in the way of His work. Mountains and hills can't get in His way; rivers and seas will not stop Him. Even the blindness of others will not prevent His plan! In the end, those who trusted in idols shall be greatly ashamed at His second coming. Whatever injustice and evil we see today, Jesus shall deal with them at His second coming. This calls for songs of praise and faithful worship to God Almighty.

PRAYER: Lord, receive all honour;, glory and praise for all Your wonderful works in my life, Amen.
