“For thus the LORD has told me,
‘I will look from My dwelling place quietly
like dazzling heat in the sunshine,
like a cloud of dew in the heat of harvest.” (vs4)
God gives His people assurance through the prophet Isaiah. At times it may appear that He is not concerned for us and that He sits way off in the heavens like the divine Watchmaker of the deists. But this is not the case!
At the proper time God will appear for the comfort of His people and for the conquering of His and their enemies. God will take care of His people! God is always taking care of His people (despite our doubts and our fuzzy vision).
Here God is said to be as the “dazzling heat in the sunshine, like a cloud of dew in the heat of harvest.” The comforts of our God are to us as the warm sun when we need heat and as the cool dew when we need refreshment. He is our comfort!
“Great men have their winter house and their summer house; but those that are at home with God have both in Him.” (Henry)
Glad to have a home,
