Isaiah 45:5-6 NIV 2011
I am the Lord, and there is no other; apart from me there is no God. I will strengthen you, though you have not acknowledged me, so that from the rising of the sun to the place of its setting people may know there is none besides me. I am the Lord, and there is no other.
Isaiah quoted God’s Words to Cyrus. 2 Chronicles 36:22, “In the first year of Cyrus king of Persia.” God chose Cyrus to bring about Judah’s demise. God used His prophets to call His people to return and remain His faithful. Ezekiel 30:24, “I will strengthen the arms of the king of Babylon, and put my sword in his hand.” Isaiah’s word was consistent throughout his book, 11:9b, “for the earth will be filled with the knowledge of the Lord as the waters cover the sea.” The Lord God makes His will known to man.
Beginning my day knowing there is no other God but God, it points me in His perfect direction. Spending time in His Word gives me a lazar focus on Him rather than me. I see Him in the beauty of the desert as we drive in the car. He is ever present in the decisions I make. My world would be much different if not for His daily presence. Life forever changed when I accepted Him as Lord. God makes His will known to me.
How does God reveal His will?
He is Lord,
