Reading along with us in Isaiah & 2 Kings? Here’s today’s reading:

Isaiah 43 (ESV)

But now thus says the Lord,
he who created you, O Jacob,
    he who formed you, O Israel:
“Fear not, for I have redeemed you;
    I have called you by name, you are mine.
When you pass through the waters, I will be with you;
    and through the rivers, they shall not overwhelm you;
when you walk through fire you shall not be burned,
    and the flame shall not consume you.
For I am the Lord your God,
    the Holy One of Israel, your Savior.
I give Egypt as your ransom,
    Cush and Seba in exchange for you.
Because you are precious in my eyes,
    and honored, and I love you,
I give men in return for you,
    peoples in exchange for your life.

  1. 10 “You are my witnesses,” declares the Lord,
    “and my servant whom I have chosen,
    that you may know and believe me
    and understand that I am he.
    Before me no god was formed,
    nor shall there be any after me.
    11 I, I am the Lord,
    and besides me there is no savior.
    12 I declared and saved and proclaimed,
    when there was no strange god among you;
    and you are my witnesses,” declares the Lord, “and I am God.

  2. What a great expression of God’s care and protection of His people. Vivid pictures of how He desires to rescue them from danger, like going through fire and not getting burned. As verse 13 says, when He acts, who can reverse it! He is Israel’s (and our) only Savior. The only one they need to depend on and place their hope in. He makes ways in the desert and yet His people abandon Him . They have burdened Him with their sin even though He has been merciful and forgiving. May we not take advantage of God in this way and receive from Him all the things He seeks to give and then honor Him with them in return!
