from the devotional book, PICTURES OF GOD
Isaiah 42:13-17; 43:14-21
When you need reassurance, picture these truths from Isaiah:
- When you are threatened, your Creator charges out like a mighty warrior, raising a war cry, doing battle on your behalf. (42:13)
- In His deep passion for you, your Maker is like a woman in labor, groaning, gasping, panting, crying out for your best. (42:14)
- Your weaknesses and limitations do not limit God. He can do things for you that you could never do for yourself, things you could never imagine. (42:15-16)
- When the situation looks the darkest, remember that you have not yet heard the end of the story. (43:14-15)
- The God who parted the Red Sea to let His people through can move any difficulties out of your path. (43:16-17)
- Your God did all these mighty deeds in the past, but He is not limited to the past. When His people are in need, the Creator delights to create something brand new. He is not done creating! (43:18-19)
Our Creator God is not bound
by the past or the present,
by our weaknesses or limitations,
by obstacles or roadblocks,
by norms or impossibilities.
Nothing can restrain His passionate love for His people.
