Are You A Reflection of the Kingdom of Righteousness

In Isaiah 32:2, the depiction of the Kingdom of Righteousness parallels the redeemed reflecting the Lord’s qualities – this could be a reference to you.

This passage suggests a connection to individuals embodying the attributes of the Lord. Isaiah portrays the Lord as a shelter and refuge, while Jesus symbolizes rest, security, and peace.

Isiah 32:2, 3 – Rivers of Water In A Dry Place

Verse 2 reminds us that Jesus will protect us.

The “rivers of Water in a dry place” described how wonderful the spiritual renewal during the reign of Hezekiah was, like the “shadow of a great rock in a weary land.” By God’s blessing, they could see better than ever, and those who hear will listen.

The more glorious reign of Jesus is all these things for us as well. Jesus is a shelter from the storm (“a cover from the tempest”) and like “the shadow of a great rock in a weary land.”

If King Hezekiah were a type of Christ, then this prophecy may refer to his time. But only God can do all that is promised here. This is what a righteous leader is like, like the shade of a great rock in a weary land.

Verse 3 is a prophecy of the great increase in spiritual light in the times of the Messiah. The righteous very diligently and attentively listen to the word preached, and receive and embrace the doctrines of the Gospel, and submit to, and obey, the ordinances of it.

Isaiah 32:2

Isaiah 32:2 – Each will be like a refuge from the wind and a shelter from the storm, like streams of water in a dry country, like the shade of a huge rock in a parched land. (NASB)

As Isaiah depicts this picture of the Kingdom of Righteousness, he is describing the Lord’s redeemed as they reflect the Lord – this could be a reference to you.

The Lord is a shelter, a refuge, a cool shadow for us to withdraw into when we find ourselves snared with too many committee meetings, too many projects, too many late-night work sessions and in the harsh light of fatigue and over-commitment. That’s when we could seek the shadow of God’s quiet strength, draw close to Him, and become still before Him. Read His Bible, walk with Him while setting your priorities in prayer. He is your refuge.
