In this passage, we find Isaiah in a season of praise – rejoicing in the knowledge of who is actually in charge, and why our struggles are not actually our struggles. Because of the God’s grace and power, we will be victors. It is the song that is sung throughout the Scriptures. This is the assurance that we have from God himself. Our lives will not be lived in vain. Those who berate, belittle, and batter God’s people will be exposed and his beloved children, his saints of light, will receive vindication and salvation from the Father they love.
In fact, the songwriter is really embracing the words of Isaiah. He states, wherever you are, whatever you’ve been going through, God said, the struggle is over for you. You’ve been in this thing long enough. And your mountainside has been rough. The struggle is over for you. He is not saying that there will be not hard times or difficulties, because if that were the case, it couldn’t be over if it never started. He is simply reminding us that the struggle is not bigger then God… and God is still in control… so it isn’t our struggle --- so it is over.
2 Chronicles 20:14-15 we find Jehosaphat receives a word
14 Then the Spirit of the LORD came upon Jahaziel the son of Zechariah, the son of Benaiah, the son of Jeiel, the son of Mattaniah, a Levite of the sons of Asaph, in the midst of the assembly. 15 And he said, “Listen, all you of Judah and you inhabitants of Jerusalem, and you, King Jehosaphat! Thus says the LORD to you: ‘Do not be afraid nor dismayed because of this great multitude, for the battle is not yours, but God’s.
If you read the entire chapter, you will find that Jehoshaphat.is in a predicament. There are rumors that a massive army will attack his people. Jehoshaphat calls his people into a season of fasting and praying.
