God will raise up his servant for Israel and the nations, and in him we must put our trust
- God’s Servant – God’s servant will raise up Israel, but he will also be a light for the nations (49:6). Simeon recognized that this servant was Jesus (Luke 2:29-32). Jesus affirmed this by calling himself the light of the world (John 8:12). God’s chosen servant has come!
- Trust the Lord – Isaiah uses the picture of one walking in the darkness and calls these people to trust in the Lord (50:10). In what ways are you walking in darkness, unable to see the path ahead, and needing to trust the Lord?
