Isaiah concludes chapter two with a warning for those wise enough to hear it. The lesson is to stop trusting in mere human beings to save you. They may be wealthy and seemingly secure for the moment, but it’s foolish to follow their path of destruction through worshipping idols (Isaiah 2:8),visiting soothsayers, and making deals with foreign governments (Isaiah 2:6). At the end of the day, human beings are always just one breath away from death (James 4:14). The day of the Lord will come, and those who have not trusted in Him will be destroyed (Ezekiel 30:3; Obadiah 1:15; Acts 2:20; 2 Peter 3:10). Seemingly important peoples’ power will be revealed as a fleeting moment of arrogance and not a plan for success.
The crucial, overall message of this passage is the need to trust God, not human beings. His power is genuine and eternal (Romans 1:18–21; 1 Timothy 6:15–16).
LORD God reality sets in. I realize totally that without You, I am nothing. Simply a ‘face’ in the crowd of 7,975,105,156 humans. Where do I fit in? Stand out? I know You Love me, and sent Jesus – Your Word to save me from an eternity separated from Your Essence. Yes, I was blessed with a peel into what shall be. Father, use me as You will to show and share Your Love. Father, thank You for everything I am blessed with. Your gift of Jesus is indescribable!!! Hallelujah, glory!!! Thank You Father, I come to You for renewal. Light a flame in me and let it burn to show a fraction of Your Creation, Your Love; I pray in Jesus’ Name, Amen.
