“ For Zion’s sake I will not keep silent, and for Jerusalem’s sake I will not rest, until her vindication shines out like the dawn, and her salvation like a burning torch.”
Nothing worse than being accused of something you didn’t do. Nothing sweeter than having the truth come out and you are vindicated in your innocence. These words of God through the prophet are written to Israel. A people who had turned their backs on God, a people who deserved discipline, who had been unfaithful and refused to follow God’s Word. But even in the midst of their discipline God makes a promise. Yes, they deserve discipline, but they are after all His children and no good parent can discipline their children forever. God will forgive them, God will bless them, God will restore them and Israel will no longer be the laughingstock of the world. We too have sinned, we too have turned away from God, and we too have been disciplined, but after the discipline, God always forgives and brings us back into the family.
