Chronological Bible: August 23, Knowing the end makes the difference…
- Isaiah 44:1-45:25
“Thus says the Lord, the King of Israel and his Redeemer, the Lord of hosts: ‘I am the first and I am the last; besides me there is no god. Who is like me? Let him proclaim it. Let him declare and set it before me…Is there a God besides me? There is no Rock; I know not any. All who fashion idols are nothing, and the things they delight in do not profit.'” –Isaiah 44:6-9, ESV
God welcomes questions. He welcomes challenges and does not shy away from inquiries. He tells us to honor Him because He already knows all other gods are not greater than He. God knows that there is no profit in idolatry. He knows the end of the struggle.
He tells us to follow Him because He knows nobody can challenge Him. You can bring Him your questions; they do not bother Him. But in your questions, believe what He says. He is the only God worth our concern. He is the only God.
