Text: Isaiah 43:15-17
I am the Lord, your Holy One,
Israel’s Creator, your King.”
16 This is what the Lord says—
he who made a way through the sea,
a path through the mighty waters,
17 who drew out the chariots and horses,
the army and reinforcements together,
and they lay there, never to rise again,
extinguished, snuffed out like a wick:
In every phase of our lives, He reveals Himself to us, in various ways. He does this for us to count on Him to pull through for us when He said He would. Even in the silent moments when we may think of the unwillingness of God to act on our behalf, He still reveals Himself by pulling a last-minute surprise and that is what we term as a miracle.
In the verses 15 to 17 of Isaiah 43, the prophesy begins by God revealing who He was to the people of Israel. Amidst the fact that they were suffering in exile, God was never going to make His promise known without reminding them of who He was. He states that He is the Lord, their Holy One. He thus revealed His personality and how it relates to His children. In essence, He was not only interested in what the people had heard He was, but how they individually perceived Him to be. He then adds to it what He had done for them, setting the stage for the promise He was about to give them. He had opened a way though the waters, making dry paths through the sea and called forth the mighty army of Egypt and drowned them in the sea.
Your personal revelation of God propels you to trust Him when it makes no sense. Learn to shift your focus from what you can get from Him to what He means to you. Let us hold tightly to this hope that we affirm, for God can be trusted to keep His promises (Hebrews 10:23).
