For as a young man marries a virgin, so your sons shall marry you; and as the bridegroom rejoices over the bride, so your God will rejoice over you.
Isaiah 62 is a poetic description of the Messiah’s deliverance of His people—deliverance from sin and Satan. You see, Satan warred against God in heaven and, as a result, was cast down to earth (Revelation 12:7-9). Adam and Eve’s sin are what gives Satan the power to bring sin into our lives. But all is not lost, thanks to the power and sacrifice of Jesus.
No one but King Jesus—the Messiah—can deliver us from Satan’s captive grip. Thanks to the cross, the work of Satan will be destroyed (Colossians 2:15, 1 John 3:8). No matter what sins you are dealing with or trapped in, Jesus has the power to free and save you from those sins. Don’t try to do it alone. You can’t. Instead, give it all over to Jesus. “Overwhelming victory is ours through Christ, who loved us” (Romans 8:37, NLT).
Prayer: LORD, help me put my full confidence in You. Give me the power to overcome sin in my life. In the name of the victorious Jesus, I pray, amen.
