12:1 You will say in that day: I will give thanks to you, O LORD, for though you were angry with me, your anger turned away, and you comforted me.
12:2 Surely God is my salvation; I will trust, and will not be afraid, for the LORD GOD is my strength and my might; he has become my salvation.
12:3 With joy you will draw water from the wells of salvation.
12:4 And you will say in that day: Give thanks to the LORD, call on his name; make known his deeds among the nations; proclaim that his name is exalted.
12:5 Sing praises to the LORD, for he has done gloriously; let this be known in all the earth.
12:6 Shout aloud and sing for joy, O royal Zion, for great in your midst is the Holy One of Israel.
The Lord is speaking through Isaiah while the Israelites are still in a position that was very difficult. God did not allow them to be push to shame by the Babylonians without reassuring them that better things were in store. No matter how things went for the God’s children the Lord always provided hope.
Like the Israelites, we are going to face difficulties. We have all experienced something where we needed hope. Whether it was loosing a loved one or a job or even a divorce. But God does not want you to be without hope. The Lord says that we will draw water from the wells of salvation. The God to who orchestrates the universe has plans for you and will redeem you from the pit.
