Isaiah chapter 51 verses 13  - 14 says this;

Who are you that you fear mere mortals, human beings who are but grass, that you forget the Lord your maker, who stretches out the heavens and who lays the foundations of the earth, that you live in constant terror every day because of the wrath of the oppressor, who is bent on destruction?

For where is the wrath of the oppressor? The cowering prisoners will soon be set free; they will not die in their dungeon, nor will they lack bread.

In this passage, the Lord asks us why we live in constant terror of mere human beings who are but grass and yet we forget that our Almighty God is the one who spread out the heavens and laid the foundations of the earth.

Do we not realise that our God's zeal and power supersede the feeble strength of those who seek to oppress us and even to destroy us?

The Lord asks us where the wrath of our enemy is because the Lord will surely undo the  efforts of the oppressor and those of us who have been imprisoned will be set free.  We will be sustained so that we do not die in the place of captivity nor will we lack food.

Bless the Lord who will scatter our oppressors.
