“Everyone who is called by My Name, whom I created for My glory,
whom I formed and made. Lead out those who have eyes but are blind,
who have ears but are deaf. All the nations gather together, and the peoples assemble. Which of their gods foretold this and proclaimed to us the former things?
Let them bring in their witnesses to prove they were right, so that others may hear and say, ‘It is true.’ You are My witnesses, declares the Lord, and My servant whom I have chosen, so that you may know and believe Me and understand that I Am He.
Before Me no god was formed, nor will there be one after Me. I, even I, Am the Lord,
and apart from Me there is no savior. I have revealed and saved and proclaimed—
I, and not some foreign god among you.
You are my witnesses,” declares the Lord, “that I am God. Yes, and from ancient days.I Am He. No one can deliver out of My Hand. When I act, who can reverse it?” Isaiah 43:7-13 (NIV)
Dear Omnipotent Father-God,
How we tremble and delight in Your Word! We tremble because we know Who You are—God Almighty! We delight because You are so Good. When we were dumb and numb to our perilous state, You opened our stopped-up ears and removed the blinders from our eyes that we could hear and see You! You are our Living God, Who saved us to the uttermost! You revealed Yourself! You proclaimed Your plan! We are in awe of Your grace, so undeserved but now so desired.
We have personally experienced You as the Source of all Goodness, Power, Wisdom and Knowledge. You are the Answer to the problem of pain. You are the Cure of all ills and injustice! You are the Omnipotent One! No one can stand against You! We claim You as God, for no one else had the power, the will, much less the love to save us at such a Great Price! No one else could. Go before us as we take up the gauntlet to spread abroad the message of this true Gospel. It is a joy, an honor, a privilege to be Your witnesses. Oh, how You love us. Our lives are Yours forever and no one can do one thing to change that; not even us.
In Jesus Name Forever
