Isaiah 45:8, 22-23 (ESV):
8“Shower, O heavens, from above,
and let the clouds rain down righteousness;
let the earth open, that salvation and righteousness may bear fruit;
let the earth cause them both to sprout;
I the Lord have created it.
22“Turn to me and be saved,
all the ends of the earth!
For I am God, and there is no other.
23 By myself I have sworn;
from my mouth has gone out in righteousness
a word that shall not return:
‘To me every knee shall bow,
every tongue shall swear allegiance.’
I am thankful that God keeps His promises. I am thankful that He pursues us into relationship with Him. I am thankful that He is working in the lives of those whom He puts into our heart to pray. Oh, the day that all the nations will praise and worship the Holy and Almighty God and Savior in unity. To God be the glory He deserves!
