Creating Praise on the Lips of Mourners (Isaiah 57:15-19)

Creating Praise on the Lips of Mourners (Isaiah 57:15-19)

Isaiah the prophet spoke centuries ago about the mourning that would overwhelm Israel due to the tragedy of her moral decline and spiritual collapse. The psychological devastation would be beyond all imagination. When we compare that society with our own, it may seem we too are on the brink of spiritual disaster. Yet in spite of Israel’s brokenness and depravity, God promised to create praise on the lips of the mourners, with comforting and healing; God would bring “peace to those far and near,” an expression which Paul understood as fulfilled in the arrival of the Gospel to both Jews and Gentiles (Eph. 2:17-18). So in our society today, filled as it is with the mourning of brokenness and desperation, it will only be as we confess Christ and exult in Him that we can ever find true relief and comfort and peace, and God will again create praise on the lips of mourners.
