“You are My witnesses, says the Lord, and My servant whom I have chosen, that you may know Me, believe Me and remain steadfast to Me, and understand that I am He…I, even I, am the Lord, and besides Me there in no Savior. I have declared and have saved, and I have shown…Yes, from the time of the first existence of day and from this day forth I am He; and there is no one who can deliver out of My hand. I will work, and who can hinder or reverse it?”
ISAIAH 43:10-13 (in part) AMPLIFIED
In reminding Israel of His previous saving work in their lives (saving from physical death by slavery, famine, captivity) God points them and us to His greater ongoing salvation – from spiritual dryness and death unto eternal life with Him.
This through our perfect Savior Who suffered the death we deserve and lived the righteous life we could not. God has worked; none can reverse it. Why?
That we may know Him, believe Him, remain steadfast to Him and understand (enjoy!) that He is Lord. It is finished. Will you pray with me?
Lord, help us work out this salvation You so powerfully work in us. Grow us daily in grace, in recognition and knowledge and understanding of our lord and Savior, Jesus, to His glory forever!
