God will never be left without representatives on the earth! Israel had very actively disobeyed God and walked away from His commands. Because of God’s Holiness, He could not allow their sin to go unpunished. But, even while the punishment was being foretold, God let His people know that the punishment would not last forever and that a remnant would remain.
As bad as things may get, you can never underestimate God’s ability to turn things around. You may think you are alone or the only one, but God will always reserve a group of people who have proven themselves loyal to Him! Those who seem to be up today can (and will) be taken down tomorrow.
There is hope for every situation because God will not leave Himself without a faithful witness on the earth. So, if you expect to always win and still be standing when the dust settles, show yourself faithful to God regardless of the pressure. Jesus represented that remnant. It was through Him that all of us were able to come back to God. Jesus is the way back to God for anyone who will accept Him. Recommit yourself to Him today.
