In this passage, the Lord is spoken of as Israel’s kinsman redeemer (like in the book of Ruth) who is her strength. In speaking of Israel’s enemies, the victory coming to her by the hand of God will be so decisive that those enemies will not be able to be found. It is also in the chapter that Israel’s exile is referred to several times I metaphor as a desert – and that God will answer, refresh, and restore Israel from this desert.
Given my position and the metaphor I found myself living through, this was an amazing comfort.
What hope does this give you in the midst of your own desert time?
