Let’s take a look at some Bible prophecies in Isaiah 42. When the Lord was on the earth, He lived for us and made Abba known to us. He also manifested Himself. He took the form of a slave and served man. He was also God’s servant.
Isaiah 42:1 begins with the words , “Behold my servant, whom I uphold, my chosen, in whom my soul delights…” this reminds me of another verse: “This is my beloved Son, with whom I am well pleased; listen to him.” (Matt. 17:5)
Let’s continue with the Bible verse: “…I have put my Spirit upon him…” He was filled with the Holy Spirit. God anointed Him with the oil of gladness. He is the Son of Man, who is the closest to God.
The verse continues: “…he will bring forth justice to the nations…” After the Lord’s crucifixion and ascension, God poured down the Holy Spirit upon us. Today, He also uses us by living in us and working with us. When the Lord was on the earth, He also walked through towns and cities.
The words in this verse are so precious, as we were once Gentiles.
Isaiah 42:2-4 says, “He will not cry aloud or lift up his voice, or make it heard in the street; a bruised reed he will not break, and a faintly burning wick he will not quench; he will faithfully bring forth justice. He will not grow faint or be discouraged till he has established justice in the earth; and the coastlands wait for his law.”
The word “justice” was mentioned three times here. It reminds me of the Lord’s words: “I am the way, and the truth, and the life.” (John 14:6) Grace and truth come from Him. He came full of grace and truth. I have been seeking for the truth since I was young. Before I believed in God, I was seeking for the truth and the meaning of life. It’s so precious that He, the source of all truth, found me, redeemed me with His blood, and opened His heart to me. He opens the most precious truths to me, lights up my whole life, and affects my eternity. The impact is indescribable.
I find this passage very precious. As we grow older, we will know more of His gentleness, and we also need it more. “A bruised reed he will not break, and a faintly burning wick he will not quench.”
