Isaiah answered God’s call and for 60 years prophesied to the Israelites. Not one person that we know of turned from their ways. In fact, history tells us that they got so tired of listening to him they eventually sawed him in half to shut him up. He died believing he was a failure…but you and I know him as one of the greatest prophets of all time.
Do you ever feel like no one cares, like no one is listening? These three simple words are for you: Don’t Give Up. In God’s perfect timing, if you remain obedient to His Word, you are going to reach exactly who He intends for you to reach, and lives are going to be changed. God does not judge success the same way the world does. God desires your obedience, even when it looks like no one is being affected. Keep listening to the Lord and, in His perfect timing, you will reap a harvest. Until then, remember 1 Peter 5:6-7 which says, “Humble yourselves, therefore, under the mighty hand of God so that at the proper time he may exalt you, casting all your anxieties on him, because he cares for you.”
