You must be able to look around your life and say, This is the LORD! He has done wonderful things for all people, for on this mountain (the church) the hand of the LORD will rest, and He will spread out His hands in our midst "As a swimmer reaches out to swim," Isaiah 25:11.
This is our God; His counsels of old are faithfulness and truth. In his mountain The LORD of hosts has promised to make for all people a feast, "He will swallow up death forever, And the Lord GOD will wipe away tears from all faces; The rebuke of His people He will take away from all the earth; For the LORD has spoken," Isaiah 25:8.
We’re privileged, rather blessed because we’re living in the days of the Lord, "Of which salvation the prophets have enquired and searched diligently, who prophesied of the grace that should come unto you: Searching what, or what manner of time the Spirit of Christ which was in them did signify, when it testified beforehand the sufferings of Christ, and the glory that should follow," 1 Peter 1:10-11.
This is our God; He has "been a strength to the poor, A strength to the needy in his distress, A refuge from the storm, A shade from the heat; For the blast of the terrible ones is as a storm against the wall," Isaiah 25:4.
This is it that makes you say, "O LORD, You are my God. I will exalt You, I will praise Your name, For You have done wonderful things; Your counsels of old are faithfulness and truth," Isaiah 25:1.
Can you say my friend, that God has been your strength? The reason we glorify Him is because He’s done wonderful things for us in distressing moments. He has been a refuge for us from the storm. That has to be true for you my friend; to be able to say for yourself that this is my God.
He spreads out His hands over us in our midst as a swimmer reaches out to swim. He provides total protection for us 24/7 who believe as He promised.
In that day of the Lord, i.e., our days of grace, we’ve a strong city, which only the righteous souls who keeps the truth enters in; "God will appoint salvation for walls and bulwarks," Isaiah 26:1. Salvation comes loaded with so many benefits, it is a defence for you who have it.
In that city, "The name of the Lord is a strong tower: the righteous runneth into it, and is safe," Proverbs 18:10. Calling upon the name of the Lord is like running into a reinforced bunker or walls and bulwarks for shelter.
He will keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on Him, who trust in the Lord. "Trust ye in the Lord for ever: for in the Lord Jehovah is everlasting strength," Isaiah 26:3-4.
Here is why my soul will always say This is the God; He has not only dominion over us, but He’s also done all our works in us - He’s our hiding place.
God bless you,
