“A bruised reed he will not break, and a smoldering wick he will not snuff out.” Isaiah 42:3
There is hope. A servant wil not crush a broken reed, nor put out the light of a wavering wick. A servant hopes, encourages, and trusts in his master. He has no right to put out the light or crush the reed. He struggles to let the reed be useful and the wick to have fire again, to give light. This he will do in Yahweh’s name, for He is God. He makes things now, and He uses His servants as His instruments. The servant will allow himself to be used because of God’s promise, not only to his life, or God’s promise in the circumstances of his life, but to all the world.
