The Lord’s Hand is Not Shortened

Isaiah 59:1-2, “[1] Behold, the Lord’s hand is not shortened, that it cannot save; neither his ear heavy, that it cannot hear: [2] But your iniquities have separated between you and your God, and your sins have hid his face from you, that he will not hear.”

This is a great reminder to all of us that God’s ability to hear and help us never weakens. The verse says that God’s hand is never shortened, and His ear is never heavy. It reminds us that if it seems that way to us, it is probably due to our own faults.

The Bible says that our iniquities separate us from God, and our sins cause God to hide His face from us and not hear us. Psalm 66:18 tells us, “If I regard iniquity in my heart, the Lord will not hear me.”

These verses remind us that if God is not hearing us, it is not HIS fault; it is OURS. If we come to a point in our life where God is not hearing us, instead of blaming God, we ought to examine our own life. We ought to ask ourself if we are truly right with God. Let us do that today. Let us not blame God if it appears He does not hear us. Instead, let us examine our lives to be sure we are right with Him.
