TEXT: ISAIAH 50:7-10
7) For the Lord GOD will help me; therefore shall I not be confounded: therefore have I set my face like a flint, and I know that I shall not be ashamed.
8) He is near that justifieth me; who will contend with me? let us stand together: who is mine adversary? let him come near to me.
9) Behold, the Lord GOD will help me; who is he that shall condemn me? lo, they all shall wax old as a garment; the moth shall eat them up.
10) Who is among you that feareth the LORD, that obeyeth the voice of his servant, that walketh in darkness, and hath no light? let him trust in the name of the LORD, and stay upon his God.
KEY VERSE: ISAIAH 26:3
Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusteth in thee.
The just stands and leans on God. He relies on God and trusts in God. That is what makes the just to live. 1 Thessalonians 2:10 says “Ye are witnesses, and God also, how holily and justly and unblameably we behaved ourselves among you that believe.” Apostle Paul could boldly and confidently declare that he belonged to God because he was a just man. In whatever situation and circumstance of life, Paul was able to live through it because he was a just man. During the turbulence at sea when his life was at great risk, Paul said he believed with unwavering and unshakeable faith that what God had told him would surely come to pass – they will all arrive safely (Acts 27:22-24). As long as it was God that said it, the matter was settled.
Has God spoken concerning any area of your life? As long as it is God, move forward with confidence even if the situation seems contrary. As a personal testimony, I am running my pastoral ministry with confidence based on what God has told me. I am doing it with full assurance because I know that the God whom I serve will never fail me. Because of God's love for the just, He will not allow the challenges of life to overwhelm him. To the just man God has promised, “I have loved thee with an everlasting love: therefore with lovingkindness have I drawn thee (Jeremiah 31:3).” The just man is a child the Father can never forsake. The Father can never throw him in the wilderness of life and abandon him there. He can never leave him in the drowning ocean or abandon him in the dark moments of his life. The just man knows that the Father loves, cherishes, and cares for him. He knows that the compassion of his Father is upon him. Therefore, in whatever situation of his life, his heavenly Father will arise in love and compassion to deliver him. That is the confidence of the just man. That is what motivates the just man to face all the adversities of life without giving up. He is not afraid of the roaring lions because he knows his loving Father is always there for him.
