"O Lord, You are my God; I will exalt You; I will praise Your name, for You have done wonderful things, plans formed of old, faithful and sure." ‭‭Isaiah‬ ‭25:1‬ Do you believe that God is Lord of all, in control of history and in control of your life? Isaiah certainly did. Even as he spoke about the judgment that was coming upon his own nation because of their sin and rejection of God’s Word, He proclaimed the sovereignty of God and His faithfulness. He spoke of the fact that God was guiding History for His own purpose, according to a plan that He had all along. He proclaims that God is accomplishing His purpose in Israel, even in these painful events that were taking place, and then Isaiah worships and praises God for the “wonderful” things He is doing. It might seem contradictory to say that God is allowing something painful and to worship and praise Him for it. But if we know that He truly is in control and that His love is beyond question, it not only makes sense; it’s the only logical response. Lord Jesus, You are the Lord of this nation and of all nations. You are the Lord of my life, and every one of my days was “written in your book” before it came to me. I know You to be a good and loving Father and gracious Lord. I trust You, even when I don’t understand what You are doing; so I worship and praise You today. Be exalted in my life! Fulfill your loving purpose in me. Amen.
