SO THAT THEY WILL KNOW
Isaiah 41:19-20 “I will put in the desert the cedar and acacia, the myrtle and the olive. I will set pines in the wastelands, the fir and the cypress together, so that the people (Israel) will know, may consider, understand, that the hand of the Lord has done this, that the Holy One of Israel has created it.”
Father God wanted His chosen people to know (to believe) that He would always be there for them. In the above scriptures God, in order to show that He had heard their cries for help, said He will provide a sign to help guide them through their wilderness experiences, just like He provided the pillar and cloud for His people when He led them from bondage in Egypt.
1) Tall cedar trees representing God’s people standing tall;
2) Blue sky represents the presence of royalty (God’s kingdom).
3)Desert represents a fallen world lost without Jesus (no living water to refresh the land). The pine/cedars were prized wood used to build the temple and were very useful.
1 Kings 5:6a “So give orders that the cedars of Lebanon be cut for me. My men will work with yours, and I will pay you for your men whatever wages you set.” Solomon wanted the trees for building God’s temple in Jerusalem to be built the way God wanted it erected.
Hebrews 4:16 “Let us then approach the throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need.”
