This verse has always just blown my mind.  I have written on it before but now I encounter it again.

“In faithfulness he will bring forth justice; he will not falter or be discouraged.”

The context is the “Servant of the Lord.”  Which we know to be Jesus.

To bring forth justice one must be in the place of injustice.  Injustice is a difficult place.  It means people are getting terribly wronged and authority is doing nothing.  People may even be dying while others look away.  It happens every single day on this earth.  Evil gets away with it, the suffering suffer more.  This is the place Jesus went to.

“In faithfulness he will bring forth justice.”

But what rocks my world is the second part.

“He will not be discouraged.”

What?!  Often injustice is the breeding ground of discouragement.  And frustration.  And anger.  And cynacism.  HOW is Jesus not discouraged?  That is insane.

But Jesus sees through his Father’s eyes.  The cross would be the point of justice for all mankind.  Some to eternal life.  Some to death and destruction.

It still blows my mind.  And maybe if I look to the Father as Jesus did, discouragement would be banished for me as well.
