Season of Lent

SINGING WITH THE EXILES

Gathered by Babylon’s waters, Judean exiles wistfully wondered: Is God for real? If so, does He really care about us? What does our future hold? God’s people had watched their world shatter into a million pieces. They were demoralized and disillusioned. Their disaster looked terminal.

Do you ever feel this way? Does it look as though your current problems are more than you can bear? Do you find yourself asking: Why did this happen? Why did God allow it? Is there any order in the world? Will God really deliver on what He said?

Isaiah answers these questions in chapters 40–55 of his book. Just when Israel’s history seemed hopeless, the Lord acts: A king named Cyrus and a new exodus in the desert! A Servant wounded for our transgressions and crushed for our iniquities! And barren Zion given many children! Standing behind these marvelous promises is God’s almighty Word: “The grass withers, the flower fades, but the word of our God will stand forever” (Isaiah 40:8). The exiles are going home!
