SERIES: ISAIAH 40 – 55

By Scott Grant


The
road never traveled by

I
shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I-
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference
.

The
classic Robert Frost poem, "The road less traveled by," depicts a
choice confronting a traveler in the woods. Two roads appeared before him. He took
"the road less traveled by" and concludes that it "has made all
the difference." The prophet Isaiah, in his poetry, talks not about a road
less traveled by but a road never traveled by. He talks of a new road that the
Lord creates for his people. He concludes that taking such a road, in our
lives, will make all the difference. But if it’s a road never traveled by, we
may not be aware that it exists. In Isaiah 43:14-21, we are encouraged not
only to be courageous, in taking the new road, but to be aware, in perceiving
the new road. We are encouraged to watch for and take the new paths the Lord
creates for us.
