Why do evil people succeed?
Certainly, the Assyrians were evil people. And yet we find that God allowed them to succeed. That in fact, it was a part of his plan (probably to judge other evil nations). How could that be?
It’s hard to understand God’s ways sometimes. But what is also clear is that God ultimately will bring justice. And that’s what we see in Isaiah’s prophesy against the Assyrians (22-28).
I did find one other thing interesting. Verse 27 is very similar to Psalm 139:3-4.
The difference? The Assyrians raged against God and were judged. David loved God, and found comfort in his presence.
When we see evil in this world, let us not rage against God, questioning his wisdom. Rather, like David, let us trust God, knowing that he will ultimately bring justice.
