OUR FATHER WHO RESTORES HIS PEOPLE
Isaiah chapter 49 verse 17 says this;
Your children hasten back, and those who laid you waste depart from you.
In this verse, the Lord is speaking to His people telling them that he will restore them after a time of affliction and destruction.
Even though His people of Zion will think that the Lord has forsaken them, saying in verse 14;
“The Lord has forsaken me, the Lord has forgotten me.”;
The Lord cannot forget His people. He has engraved them on the palms of His hands.
Isaiah chapter 49 verse 18 fills in the details of the beginning of the return of God's people;
Lift up your eyes and look around; all your children gather and come to you. As surely as I live,” declares the Lord, “you will wear them all as ornaments; you will put them on, like a bride.
The Lord's church will see all her children returning to her whom she thought were lost and they shall be her adornment as that of a bride.
Those who devastated and left her in ruins, will depart and be far away from her.
This is the restoration of the Lord's people for which a rapturous celebration will break out as foretold in Isaiah 49 verse 13;
Shout for joy, you heavens; rejoice, you earth; burst into song, you mountains!
