Isaiah 45 encourages us with God's statement, “I am the LORD, and there is none else. “I have not spoken in secret, In some dark land; I did not say to the offspring of Jacob, ‘Seek Me in a waste place’; I, the LORD, speak righteousness, Declaring things that are upright.

God used an idolatrous King’s country to subdue, conquer, and take captive Israel and Judah for 70 years because of their failure to follow God’s commands; specifically the land sabbath and idolatry.
