He will change the darkness by light

Isaiah 42:10-17 is a declaration by God against the idolatry of the people of Israel, but at the same time it is also a promise that God will keep those who trust Him even in the midst of darkness on the more dense way.

The prophet Isaiah wrote:

15 I will lay waste the mountains and hills
and dry up all their vegetation;
I will turn rivers into islands
and dry up the pools.

Isaiah 42:15

God has always hated idolatry, and this is obvious, since God does not share His glory with anyone, and it seems that idolatry was one of the weaknesses of the people of Israel from the beginning. Remember when the people of Israel left Egypt, that Moses went up to speak with God and while He was arriving, Israel erected a golden calf. After this strong event, even such a people in various scenarios of their existence continued to do the same. And here we are once again, in another time and another scenario, and God still has to continue correcting their bad acts.

It is very true that God is very merciful, but it is also true that God pours out His wrath on the children of evil (Romans 1:8). In verse 15 of Isaiah 42 God pronounces judgment against the people of Israel, but not only pronounces judgment but also gives word of encouragement to all those people who trust in Him:

I will lead the blind by ways they have not known,
along unfamiliar paths I will guide them;
I will turn the darkness into light before them
and make the rough places smooth.
These are the things I will do;
I will not forsake them.

Isaiah 42:16

Jesus has promised to be with us until the end, He will guard us against evil, will free ourselves from temptation and to make us walk in steadfast places. God will always keep us on the way, since by our own strength we will not be able to stand. Let us give glory to God for His love and mercy.

The Lord is my shield
A prayer of consolation

    “I, will lead the blind by ways they have not known,
    along unfamiliar paths I will guide them;
    I will turn the darkness into light before them and make the rough places smooth.
    These are the things I will do;
    I will not forsake them.”
    Isaiah 42:1

    The Bible tells us the Lord God created the heaven and the earth:
    “And the earth was without form and void; and darkness was on the face of the deep.” And God said:
    “Let there be light: and there was light. And God saw the light, that it was good: and God divided the light from the darkness.” Genesis 1:1-4

    “And God divided the light from the darkness”
    Darkness represents the place where the Devil and his servants are, those who are separate from God follow the Devil, they are in the darkness.

    Since the beginning of times people of the earth, who were not offspring of Set and were separate from the ways of the Lord, went on their own ways doing evil continuously, according to their wicked heart.
    All of them remained in the darkness. They fell down in the Devil’s net and served him. They were the children of men.

    In a World where people were in darkness, the Lord God had many people who were in light, who trusted in Him, well-known men such as Enoch, Noah, Abraham, Lot, and many others, such as Isaiah: They were children of God.

    Among people in darkness who adored and made blood sacrifices to hand-made idols, the children of God lived. They adored the Lord God and served Him. They were in the Light.

    Those who are in light are God and his children, who have been chosen among others of the World, whose names are written in the Book of life.

    The Lord God had created men and women for his name’s glory, but they were in sin, rebels against Him, deserving of eternal damnation.

    For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God
    (Romans 3:1)

    However, the Lord God loved the World so much that he sent his beloved Son, Jesus Christ, to save those who believe in Him..

    “Jesus spoke again to them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that follows me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life.” John 8:12
