Isaiah 42

“Behold my servant, whom I uphold, my chosen, in whom my soul delights; I have put my Spirit upon him; he will bring forth justice to the nations” (v1). Isaiah declared that God’s chosen servant would come to bring justice to earth, but his power would not be like human leaders. Instead, “He will not cry aloud or lift up his voice, or make it heard in the street; a bruised reed he will not break, and a faintly burning wick he will not quench (v2-3). By His own sacrificial love, He would win victory, set prisoners free, and open blind eyes (v7).

“He will not grow faint nor be discouraged till he has established justice in the earth …” (v4). Jesus is still at work bringing salvation, setting prisoners free, and strengthening the “bruised reed”.
