  1. Isaiah 34 & 35 wrap up a section of writing by providing concluding remarks, “The Lord is angry with all nations; his wrath is on all their armies” (34:2), the points to the end of time, an eschatological section, “All the stars in the sky will be dissolved and the heavens rolled up like a scroll…” (34:4).

    Words of comfort are offered again, as it seems the pattern of Isaiah, “Be strong, do not fear; your God will come, he will come with vengeance; with divine retribution he will come to save you” (35:4). And here we find a link to the words of Jesus, “Then will the eyes of the blind be opened and the ears of the deaf unstopped” (35:5).

    The concluding words offer my hope and comfort: “Gladness and joy will overtake them, and sorrow and sighing will flee away” (35:10).

    God is in the details. He is aware of all that is going on and has a redemptive plan for all who seek his ways. My eyes are constantly drawn to the end of chapter 34, read this a few times and trust that God wants the best for all:

    Look in the scroll of the Lord and read: None of these will be missing, not one will lack her mate. For it is his mouth that has given the order and his Spirit will gather them together. He allots their portions; his hand distributes them by measure. They will possess it forever and dwell there from generation to generation. Isaiah 34:16-17

    If the Lord pays such close attention to the owl and the falcon, how much more will he attend to those who call him Lord.
