A Bruised Reed.

In Matthew 12:14-21, after Jesus healed the man with the withered hand in the synagogue on the sabbath, the pharisees wanted to kill Him. Jesus knew and left the city. Many people followed after Him. The bible says He healed them all. But not wanting the pharisees to know where He was, told them not to say anything. All things that happened to Jesus were prophesied in the old testament. In Isaiah 42, the prophesy that the messiah would be humble and kind to the wounded in spirit and body. And He would bring judgement to the people through mercy. So that people would trust in the Lord. Hope and trust are an important part of our faith. The hope that things will change and the trust that God will do it. This is called faith. Jesus went about doing good and healing all that were oppressed of the devil.
