Isaiah 45:2-6 KJV 2 I will go before thee, and make the crooked places straight: I will break in pieces the gates of brass, and cut in sunder the bars of iron: 3 And I will give thee the treasures of darkness, and hidden riches of secret places, that thou mayest know that I, the LORD, which call thee by thy name, am the God of Israel. 4 For Jacob my servant's sake, and Israel mine elect, I have even called thee by thy name: I have surnamed thee, though thou hast not known me. 5 I am the LORD, and there is none else, there is no God beside me: I girded thee, though thou hast not known me: 6 That they may know from the rising of the sun, and from the west, that there is none beside me. I am the LORD, and there is none else.
This is one of my many favorite verses. First, because verse 1 talks about an anointed Gentile king, which amazes me. Secondly, He will go before us and make the crooked places straight. That just resonates with my soul...maybe because there was alot of me that was crooked that He has been straightening out! He will demolish the prisons that surround us and give us treasures (spiritual truths) of darkness and hidden riches of secret places (our alone time with Him, our secret place!) All so we would know that He is the Lord God that has called us by NAME!!!! He says He called us before we knew Him, and there is NO other God beside Him.
I dont know about you, but to know that our God is THE GOD, is so comforting and reassuring that there is no one else we can go to! Chapter 45 is amazing! Oooh I will save the rest for another day.
All I know is this...God is Amazing!!! He has called me, you, us by NAME and HE takes care of our every need. That in and of itself makes me say, ahhhhhhhhh.
YOU ARE POSITIONED BY GOD AND HIGHLY FAVORED!! GOD HAS CALLED YOU BY NAME, YOU ARE SPECIAL TO HIM, HE LOVES YOU SO MUCH AND WILL MAKE ALL OF YOUR CROOKED PLACES STRAIGHT!
