What is Isaiah 31 about?
In our study of Isaiah chapter thirty one, we look at the futility of running to men for help when the real answer is to trust in God. There is an old song called "Where could I go (but to the Lord)" that came to mind when I was studying this chapter. It speaks of the same type of situation that Jerusalem was facing during Isaiah's time where there is danger and you have a choice to either stand on your faith or to run to men for help. In chapter 30, Isaiah reassured the people that God would fight the battle for them and, now, he continues by describing what will happen if they look to men for the help that only God can provide.
