Message of the Day: God Wants Only the Best for His People
Text: Isaiah 48:1-22
Key Verse: Isaiah 48:17
Thus says the Lord, your Redeemer,
The Holy One of Israel:
“I am the Lord your God,
Who teaches you to profit,
Who leads you by the way you should go. (NKJV)
The God who called Israel to be his people still looks after them. The God who made the world still controls its history. He brings Cyrus to Babylon to conquer Israel’s oppressor and free the captive people. God has always spoken openly with his people, and now he does so again, by sending his messenger the prophet to make his plans known to them.
Because God wanted only the best for his people, he was saddened to see the suffering they had brought on themselves through their stubborn disobedience. If the had paid attention to his instruction, they would have enjoyed unbroken peace and prosperity. God is now delighted that they are about to leave Babylon and return to their land. He will protect and provide for them, but if they want to enjoy peace in their land they must live uprightly.
In the same way, God wants only the best for us. We only need to pay attention to his words. He is more than willing to provide for is and loves to see us prosper in everything we do.
