When times are turbulent, where should we turn and who should we trust?
That was the big question the people of Isaiah’s day were asking. Assyria to the north had a new king and ambitions to become a superpower. Tiny nations like Judah were in its sights. Conflict was inevitable. A showdown was coming. Who would they turn to for help and who should they trust?
It was into these turbulent times that God sent Isaiah. For 50 years and 4 kings Isaiah was like a stuck record, calling the people of his day to turn back to God and trust his Word. Amid the uncertainty and turmoil of his times, Isaiah’s message was one of judgement and hope. Their sin was serious, but God would keep his promises. While turbulent times lay ahead, God would send a perfect King who would deal with their sin by laying down his life.
We too are living in turbulent, volatile, fearful times. Like the people of Isaiah’s day, we can be tempted to turn to and trust in all the wrong things. Join us in 2018 as we learn what it means to turn to and trust in God’s King.
