God my redeemer



“But for now, dear servant Jacob, listen—

    yes, you, Israel, my personal choice.

God who made you has something to say to you;

    the God who formed you in the womb wants to help you.

Don’t be afraid, dear servant Jacob,

    Jeshurun, the one I chose.

For I will pour water on the thirsty ground

    and send streams coursing through the parched earth.

I will pour my Spirit into your descendants

    and my blessing on your children.

They shall sprout like grass on the prairie,

    like willows alongside creeks.

This one will say, ‘I am God’s,’

    and another will go by the name Jacob;

That one will write on his hand ‘God’s property’—

    and be proud to be called Israel.”

God, King of Israel,

    your Redeemer, God-of-the-Angel-Armies, says:

“I’m first, I’m last, and everything in between.

    I’m the only God there is.

Who compares with me?

    Speak up. See if you measure up.

From the beginning, who else has always announced what’s coming?

    So what is coming next? Anybody want to venture a try?

Don’t be afraid, and don’t worry:

    Haven’t I always kept you informed, told you what was going on?

You’re my eyewitnesses:

    Have you ever come across a God, a real God, other than me?

    There’s no Rock like me that I know of.”

Isaiah 44 (MSG)
