In my study of the Word, I often come across something that seems to reach out and grab me:
“Everyone who is called by My name,
Whom I have created for My glory;
I have formed him, yes, I have made him.” [Isaiah 43:7 NKJV]
Bring me everyone who is called by my name,
the ones I created to experience my glory.
I myself formed them to be who they are
and made them for my glory. [Isaiah 43:7 TPT]
This is a fabulous study – a study full of promise and love from our Father! Here’s a few cross references
[Isaiah 43:21 NKJV] This people I have formed for Myself; They shall declare My praise.
[Psalms 50:23 NKJV] “Whoever offers praise glorifies Me; And to him who orders [his] conduct [aright] I will show the salvation of God.”
[1 Peter 2:9 NKJV] But you [are] a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, His own special people, that you may proclaim the praises of Him who called you out of darkness into His marvelous light;
We are created to glorify God! To offer praise which glorifies Him! We are meant for so much than we know! Christian means little anointed one – we are becoming like The Anointed One – Yeshua Hamashiach! What glory, honor and praise should we offer our Lord for that extreme privilege! We are created for His glory – to become like Him! Oh the wonder of it all! Hallelujah!
Oh Father – we love and adore you! Who is like unto thee oh Lord! You are magnificent and more loving and kind than we can imagine. Holy, righteous and oh how you love us! We thank you Lord! We praise you and your holy name! We surrender all to thee! Use us to accelerate and proclaim your glory for there is none that can compare to You in any way! Help us to see how wonderful all this is and how You have provided everything to bring us home to thee clean and spotless! In Jesus’s matchless name! Amen!
