The prophet Isaiah is trying to tell us that God has set a beautiful vision before us from the reading from Isaiah 2. “They will beat their swords into plowshares and their spears into pruning hooks. Nation will not take up sword against nation, nor will they train for war anymore.” The world in which Isaiah lived was a chaotic and unjust world. Israel was a storm-tossed nation, threatened by the powerful Assyrians to the north and east and intimidated by the Egyptians to the south and west. As we look at our situation and our circumstance, we also see and realize there are small and big pains and challenges that face us each day. Can you really believe the words of Isaiah proclaimed, when his people were in most desperate situation? We can confidently say that this same God is with us, as we are going through our best and worst times of our lives today too.
