“Give Him No Rest”

Isaiah 62:7

 

            In the opening verse of this chapter, the Lord God declares that he will not rest until every chosen, ransomed sinner has been saved by his grace. In verse seven, the Holy Spirit commands us to “give him no rest,” until his church and kingdom is complete, until all his elect have been saved. What an astounding command! Learn what it means.

1.    God commands us to exercise importunity with him. He would have us to be as passionate, zealous and consecrated to the salvation of his people as he is.

2.    Importunity prevails with God (Luke 11:1-13; 18:5-7). All true, fervent prayer is effectual.

3.    Importunity on our part is a sure sign of coming action on God’s part. When God intends to do something among us, with us, or for us, he causes us to cry unto him for it. — “As soon as Zion travailed, she brought forth her children” (Isaiah 66:8).

4.    Indifference on our part is a sign of uselessness at best and coming judgment at worst.
