Isaiah 57:20-21 But the wicked are like the troubled sea, when it cannot rest, whose waters cast up mire and dirt. There is no peace, saith my God, to the wicked.
“No matter what I do I can’t seem to get it together.” “Nothing I do makes a difference.” “My finances are fine, my job’s fine, everything’s ok and I am still unhappy with life. What’s the matter?” These are all statements every Christian counselor has heard. People come into the office with every imaginable circumstance and excuse for their problems. It’s my job, my spouse, or my children cause problems. Life isn’t fair. Although every one of these statements may be true, often the underlying problem is their relationship with God. Having a vision for the future will not guarantee success. A roadmap to a destination does not guarantee your arrival unless you follow all the turns laid out for you. Going to church and being religious is not the same as having a relationship with God.
In today’s verses God says He will revive the heart of the humble in Isaiah 57:15. He also promises the wicked, the unsaved, who have no desire for God, will have no peace. Their life will be like a troubled sea. Churning and turning with no end in view. We all have problems we must face. The difference in life is the outcome, not the problem. For the unrepentant soul, the outcome is often just another time of finding life to be hopeless and drear. However the outcome for the believer is just the opposite. With ever trial in life there is a new revelation, a closer walk with God, and the realization, we are not in this alone.
There is a peace that the world cannot know. The Peace in this life that only God can give. Life’s journey, to be one of joy, must include quality time with God. Without Him, life is really not a journey, it’s a never ending nightmare.
