Isaiah 9:1 (NJKV)
9 Unless the LORD of hosts Had left to us a very small remnant, We would have
become like Sodom, We would have been made like Gomorrah.

Isaiah is speaking of the vision he had concerning Judah. The Lord reviewed
their sins for they had forsaken the Lord. Their country laid desolate. They
were bruised and wounded. There were a remnant of people left, those who God
had chosen to remain.

Elijah ran away to a cave to escape Jezebel. There he was alone and overwhelmed
with depression. He feared for his life for he knew of the murders of the other
prophets. He told God they have killed all the prophets, torn down the altars,
and now they seek my life. But God answered Elijah and said that He had
reserved seven thousand men who had not bowed their knee to Baal. God keeps a
remnant of those faithful to Him. Romans 11:5 says, "5 Even so then, at this
present time there is a remnant according to the election of grace." Think of
all the people in the world and then think of how many have been saved by the
grace of Jesus Christ. It's only a remnant in comparison to all the people that
exist. There is only a remnant of the world that has been saved by God's grace.
Are you a part of that grace? Did Jesus die for your sins? If so, give thanks
to the Lord Jesus for His sacrificial love that you became a part of the chosen
to be called heirs of God.
