    Isaiah 54v7 8 is talking abt how God forsake and also had mercy on his people. What those verses are telling us is that sin can cut the relationship between God and man. Therefore, if we have in any way displease God in our way of life we need to come to Him in repentance and He is also ready to accept us back and show us mercy. My dear friend out there come to Him today. He is ready to have mercy on you.Tarry not tomorrow may be too late.

    I love this particular chapter in Isaiah... but the verses that speak to me the most are 1 2... At one point in my walk with God I'd reached a place of indecisiveness, and I didn't know when it was that the Lord wanted me to do? I was yet rather young in the faith at the time...so as I search the scripture for answers, God directed me Isaiah 54 and kept me right there for quite some times...I didn't know what He wanted me to see until after reading, and studying this chapter over and over again. The first two verses seem to be highlighted in me spirit man so clear ! As a child of God, being saved by grace...it is my reasonable service to share the good news of salvation with other that know not of God's free gift unto salvation, and of the price Jesus paid that they might attain His gift... In verses 1 2 this is what became clear to me, is that God is saying to his people, that there are "so many people out here" vs1 more are the children of the desolate than the children of the married wife, saith the Lord . Vs 2 "Enlarge the place of thy tent, and let them stretch forth the curtains of thine habitation:spare not, lengthen thy cords, and strengthen thy stakes" This spoke volumes to me. There is a lot of work to be done, people are dying without knowing they have a Savior... in vs 1 He's letting us know that there's more "children of God then a wife could ever have "
