Passages like Isaiah 34:1-8 serve as a sharp reminder of God’s zealous love for His people. As Christians, we know this like none other. As graphic as Isaiah 34 is to the modern-day child of God, it pales in light of what God did in sending His own Son to die on a cross. In Christ’s death on the cross, the world sees most clearly God’s zealous love for His own.
Yet this love is not limited to the catastrophic and extreme circumstances of this life. God’s protective care reaches to the smallest details of our everyday needs. Jesus taught that God’s care for the sparrow should remind us of how specific God’s concern is for those who belong to Him. He loves us, planned for us, and has a future that has included us. The good news that Jesus brings to our world is nothing less than an invitation in becoming one of His own.
Remember, no matter what you are going through, God wants to fight for you.
