Scripture to Read: Isaiah 43:11-13
God Almighty makes it clear today that there is only one God, and He is God. God also lets us know that He is our One and Only Savior. For us, as Christians, it is comforting to know that most everything prophesied about in the Old Testament was completely fulfilled through our Lord Jesus Christ. God has always been God, and He has always been the One True Savior for all mankind. God tells us in Isaiah 43:12 that He is the One who declared, saved, and proclaimed. If we’re not careful, we can give mankind credit for what God alone has done. All of the Bible is God’s Holy Word (2 Timothy 3:16-17; Romans 15:4; 2 Peter 1:20-21). It is not Isaiah’s word, Paul’s word, Peter’s word, or any of the other writer’s words, but it is God’s and God’s alone. God used all of the 40-plus writers to declare and proclaim Him and His Truth, just as He uses us today to continue in the ministry of declaring and proclaiming Him and His Good News. That is why God clearly says in Isaiah 43:12 that not only is Israel His witnesses, but we as believers today are His witnesses as well. God is eternal and through our Lord Jesus Christ, He offers all mankind eternal life with Him instead of eternal death separated from Him. Once we surrender to Christ as Lord, nothing can separate us from Him (Isaiah 43:13; Romans 8:35-39), which is awesome and comforting to all believers.
