“The people whom I formed for Myself will declare My praise.” Isaiah 43:21 (NASB)
In the writings of the prophet Isaiah in our Bible, he delivered messages God gave to the people of Israel. Today we read where God Isaiah why He had chosen the people of Israel. During Old Testament time God would made His plan known through the prophets who were decedents of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. They were the people God appointed and called especially to carry the Words of God to His people. After Jesus died on the cross, He rose from the dead with a new life. He expanded His offer to the whole world and God is now working with all who accept Jesus as Savior. God’s message is expressed in our verse and applies to all who by faith believe in Jesus. Yes God is forming a people for Himself throughout the world today. His purpose remains the same we find in our verse, “that we might proclaim His praise.” Let’s not forget that’s what God wants from us today – our praise. Let’s be sure today that we are sincerely praising God, not only with our words but with our whole heart. He has promised to take care of us because, we belong to Him.
