“Now I Declare New Things…”

“Now I Declare New Things…”

Blessings folk!

Now, let us reread Is 42:1-7 with concluding verses 8-9.

Isa 42:1-9

“Behold, My Servant, whom I uphold;
My chosen one in whom My soul delights.
I have put My Spirit upon Him;
He will bring forth justice to the nations.

“He will not cry out or raise His voice,
Nor make His voice heard in the street.

“A bruised reed He will not break
And a dimly burning wick He will not extinguish;
He will faithfully bring forth justice.

“He will not be disheartened or crushed
Until He has established justice in the earth;
And the coastlands will wait expectantly for His law.”

Thus says God the LORD,
Who created the heavens and stretched them out,
Who spread out the earth and its offspring,
Who gives breath to the people on it
And spirit to those who walk in it,

“I am the LORD, I have called You in righteousness,
I will also hold You by the hand and watch over You,
And I will appoint You as a covenant to the people,
As a light to the nations,

To open blind eyes,
To bring out prisoners from the dungeon
And those who dwell in darkness from the prison.

“I am the LORD, that is My name;
I will not give My glory to another,
Nor My praise to graven images.

“Behold, the former things have come to pass,
Now I declare new things;
Before they spring forth I proclaim them to you.”

The Lord is the Lord.
He will not give His glory to any other.

Then this great statement of hope…
The former things have come to pass…
The Lord declares new things…
Before they spring forth He proclaims them to us…

The past is the past.
The Lord has/declares new things for each True Believer.
The Lord has planned them before He proclaims them to us.

Fear not.
Live in His plan!
