Isaiah 17:10 – Remember the Rock of Refuge

Today’s Reading: Isaiah 15:1‐18:7, Galatians 1:1‐24, Psalm 58:1‐11, Proverbs 23:12

Context: Isaiah is prophesying the desolation of Damascus.

Isaiah 17:10-11 – For you have forgotten the God of your salvation
 and have not remembered the Rock of your refuge;
therefore, though you plant pleasant plants… the harvest will flee away
 in a day of grief and incurable pain.

Ruins on the Road to Damascus

Observations:

  • Desolation will come because:
    • You have forgotten the God of your salvation
    • You have not remembered the Rock of your refuge (italics added)
  • Though you plant pleasant plants
    • The harvest will flee away in a day of grief and incurable pain

If we forget God, our work will be futile and painful.

Apply: I want to repeat the three Rs from this verse in prayer throughout today – Remember the Rock of Refuge. 

How can remembering God change the outcome of your life?
