Isaiah 43 – What He Will Give for Thee


Isaiah 43The heart cannot grasp what the Lord is willing to give for Thee.

“Since thou wast precious in my sight, thou hast been honourable, and I have loved thee: therefore will I give men for thee, and people for thy life.”

In the time of tribulation, the Lord will shield His darling with the power of His hand:

“Fear not: for I have redeemed thee, I have called thee by thy name; thou art mine. When thou passest through the waters, I will be with thee; and through the rivers, they shall not overflow thee: when thou walkest through the fire, thou shalt not be burned; neither shall the flame kindle upon thee.”

As a love letter to His beloved, she can sleep soundly upon the bed of promises:

“Yea, before the day was I am He; and there is none that can deliver out of My hand: I will work, and who shall let it?”

What God hath determined shall no purposes of man overturn, says the One, “your King.” God can make a way out of no way, “a way in the sea, and a path in the mighty waters.” God will do that which has not even entered the mind of man: “Behold, I will do a new thing; now it shall spring forth; shall ye not know it? I will even make a way in the wilderness, and rivers in the desert.” Then shall His beloved know that “I, even I, am the Lord; and beside Me there is no savior.”

Think not upon the former trials and heartaches and follies, for a new thing doth the Lord do. “Remember ye not the former things, neither consider the things of old.”

By the love of Christ concerning Thee,
