Isaiah 57:13 ” When you cry out for help, let your collection of idols save you!”

Unfortunately across the ages there have been times when the wickedness of men as been so great that God has said, “Although they cry out to Me, I won’t listen.” (Jeremiah 11:12) That’s when this verse in Isaiah is more of a taunt…just like Judges 10:13-14 when God declared, “You have forsaken Me and served other gods…go and cry out to the gods you’ve chosen.” or when God sarcastically spoke of the people’s idols in Deuteronomy 32:37-38, “Let them rise up and help you, let them be your protection.” It’s all quite simple, our collection of idols will never be able to rescue or save us…and if we cry out to them in anguish, it will only fall on deaf ears… for in the end it’s our hearts that are deluded, deceived, and misled.
