Seeing the Arm of the Lord is hard because its unexpected. When Isaiah said God would redeem His people with His mighty arm we might reasonably expect that redemption to come with a great display of overwhelming power. But the previous Servant Songs have already hinted that the Servant would not be a typical super hero. God’s greatest power is evident in His ability to return love and forgiveness for hatred and injustice, not in His ability to crush all opposition. The substitution of the Servant is the greatest display of the Lord’s Arm, yet it is most unexpected, “Who has believed our report, or to whom has the arm of the Lord been revealed?” – Only those saved by the Arm of the Lord can see it!
