The Lord Shall Rescue You

If Israel had repented of her sins, the Lord would have prevented Babylon from taking the nation into captivity. However, since Israel would not repent, the Lord also foretold that He would rescue them from captivity later because of their repentance,
“Fear not, for I am with you;
I will bring your descendants from the east,
And gather you from the west;
I will say to the north, ‘Give them up!’
And to the south, ‘Do not keep them back!’
Bring My sons from afar,
And My daughters from the ends of the earth–
Everyone who is called by My name,
Whom I have created for My glory;
I have formed him, yes, I have made him.”
(Isaiah 43:5-7)
Likewise for us, sometimes it seems that God is far away, but He knows us and knows where we are, and He will help us.
