Last night I was just reading through my Bible. I wasn’t specfically studying or anything. Just happened to start reading near the end of Isaiah though. This is what caught my eye.
Isaiah 43:1 Fear not, for I have redeemed you; I have called you by name, you are mine. ESV
Isaiah 43:5 Fear not, for I am with you; ESV
Isaiah 43:7 … everyone who is called by my name, whom I created for my glory, whom I formed and made.” ESV
10 …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.
13 Also henceforth I am he; there is none who can deliver from my hand; I work, and who can turn it back?“ ESV
Isaiah 43:25 I, I am he who blots out your transgressions for my own sake, and I will not remember your sins. ESV
6 “I am the first and I am the last; besides me there is no god.
7 Who is like me? Let him proclaim it. Let him declare and set it before me, since I appointed an ancient people. Let them declare what is to come, and what will happen.
8 Fear not, nor be afraid; have I not told you from of old and declared it? And you are my witnesses! Is there a God besides me? There is no Rock; I know not any.” ESV
5 I am the Lord, and there is no other, besides me there is no God; I equip you, though you do not know me,
6 that people may know, from the rising of the sun and from the west, that there is none besides me; I am the Lord, and there is no other.
7 I form light and create darkness, I make well-being and create calamity, I am the Lord, who does all these things. ESV
Isaiah 45:9 “Woe to him who strives with him who formed him, a pot among earthen pots! Does the clay say to him who forms it, ‘What are you making?‘ ESV
Isaiah 45:22 “Turn to me and be saved, all the ends of the earth! For I am God, and there is no other. ESV
3 … who have been borne by me from before your birth, carried from the womb;
4 even to your old age I am he, and to gray hairs I will carry you. I have made, and I will bear; I will carry and will save. ESV
9 …for I am God, and there is no other; I am God, and there is none like me,
10 declaring the end from the beginning and from ancient times things not yet done, saying, ‘My counsel shall stand, and I will accomplish all my purpose,’
11 calling a bird of prey from the east, the man of my counsel from a far country. I have spoken, and I will bring it to pass; I have purposed, and I will do it. ESV
Any doubts as to whom God is?
God made the world and all in it.
God calls us by name.
God is carrying those He calls from birth to old age, the perfect cradle to grave system.
God will do all that He says He will do.
Why do we fear?
