Read: Isaiah 42:18-25(NKJV)

42:18. ” Hear, you deaf; And look, you blind, that you may see.
42:19. Who [is] blind but My servant, Or deaf as My messenger [whom] I send? Who [is] blind as [he who is] perfect, And blind as the LORD’s servant?
42:20. Seeing many things, but you do not observe; Opening the ears, but he does not hear.”
42:21. The LORD is well pleased for His righteousness’ sake; He will exalt the law and make [it] honorable.
42:22. But this [is] a people robbed and plundered; All of them are snared in holes, And they are hidden in prison houses; They are for prey, and no one delivers; For plunder, and no one says, “Restore!”
42:23. Who among you will give ear to this? [Who] will listen and hear for the time to come?
42:24. Who gave Jacob for plunder, and Israel to the robbers? Was it not the LORD, He against whom we have sinned? For they would not walk in His ways, Nor were they obedient to His law.
42:25. Therefore He has poured on him the fury of His anger And the strength of battle; It has set him on fire all around, Yet he did not know; And it burned him, Yet he did not take [it] to heart.


Israel was to be God’s servant and a messenger to the world, but by their own freewill, they chose to be unfaithful to God. Therefore, God poured out His fury on them by giving them over to their enemies for punishment. By their failure, they became a nation without purity – blind and deaf to God’s word. Unfortunately, even with the flames of God’s judgment burning against them, they didn’t understand or repent.

God’s people had God’s Word and the riches of His law and divine revelation, yet they ignored it.
Beloved, it is a fearful thing to ignore or disobey the Word of God. Some of us have ears that function like ornaments on the sides of our heads -we do not hear with them. God disciplines His erring children, and He will always do. Sometimes, the fiery trials He allows us pass through are meant to bring us to repentance and softness of heart.

The more you resist, the more the fire will burn! Is the fire of God’s correction burning away the sin and impurity in your life? Are you deaf and blind to spiritual reality? Jesus came to give sight and hearing to those who are spiritually blind and deaf but only those who know they are blind and deaf can be healed.
PRAYER: Father, forgive my unfaithfulness and deliver me from spiritual deafness and blindness, Amen.
