See, God has come to save me. I will trust in him and not be afraid. The Lord God is my strength and my song; he has given me victory." Isaiah 12:2
From the beginning of time, God had a plan to reconcile man to Himself. He came to save us and for that reason alone, we should trust in God and not be afraid. He knew that we would need a Savior to save us from our sins, so He sent Jesus to be that Savior. He knew the way this story would end. He knew that Jesus would be the victory we would need. That alone is reason to rejoice and be glad.
Is He your strength and song like He was for Isaiah? The amazing thing about this verse is that Isaiah lived before the cross of Christ. Yet, He still proclaimed the cross and knew that God would send a Savior and give victory. Since we live after the cross, we can proclaim that same victory because we see what God did to bring about the victory in our lives. He sent us the salvation we needed to live with Him forever.
A Prayer to Remember
Thank you for the salvation of Jesus Christ. Thank you for the victory and making a way for me to be with you forever. Amen.
