Online Bible Verses - Isaiah 25:1 - LORD, you are my God...
“LORD, you are my God; I will exalt you and praise your name, for in perfect faithfulness you have done wonderful things, things planned long ago.” Isaiah 25:1
Isaiah, one of the foremost prophets found in scripture. He saw through lenses given to him by God. God showed him things, and he wrote them down. Isaiah 53 is one of my favorites, a vision of what and whom would come 700 years after it was written.
He devoted a good deal of his writing and subject matter to characterization/description of God’s nature. In effect, lifting up and praising Him for being over and above all things, thanking Him at the same time for caring for and loving us individually.
“things planned long ago”: As big as God is, He knew all about Isaiah in every detail, had a plan and purpose for him from birth. Before birth in fact, way before. Had it mapped out. He knows us as well, in the same way. Me and you. Knew about us 100,000 years ago. Loved us before we even were, and He loves us now. Has a plan, it would be His wish we turn to Him today and get onboard. The plan may not look exactly the same as it did 40 some odd years ago, when I embarked on my own version. Hit the reset button multiple times over the years, post failure. Surely I would get it right at some point.
Got tired of it eventually. Tired and broken. Found He still offered a plan, adjusted to compensate for my delay as opposed to His change of mind.
His plan seems to work better than mine.
