Feeling useless?

These Covid months ask much of us, it is tough interacting online and being held from our loved ones. How does Jesus look at those who ask for strength?

Look at my servant, whom I strengthen. He is my chosen one, who pleases me.

Isaiah 42:1

Jesus looks with pleasure on us who feel so weak we are just surviving through that strengthening. He calls us his chosen ones! What undeserved privilege.

I have put my Spirit upon him. He will bring justice to the nations.

When we humble ourselves to call for help, he puts his Spirit in us. Somehow, though we are kept from people he uses us to contribute to his kingdom!

He will not shout or raise his voice in public.

Isaiah 42:2

We imagine this requires us clamouring for attention. The Lord does not need our noise, just his strength to enable us to overcome in the little things of our shut down lives.
