Isaiah 45:19 “I publicly proclaim bold promises. I do not whisper obscurities in some dark corner. I would not have told the people of Jacob to seek Me if I could not be found. I, the Lord, speak only what is true and declare what is right.”
This is how my God makes promises to me: He announces it for all to hear so that they become a witness to what He said, to prove that He means to fulfill what He said. He doesn’t whisper in the dark so that no one else hears…
The name Jacob is used because He was the one who often schemed to get things his way, yet God still wanted to show His goodness to. God said if I tell you to find Me, it’s because I want to be found. He doesn’t want to give a hard time. He doesn’t say one thing but means another. He only says what is true and right… And that’s why I know I can trust Him.
That’s how He wants to be known: He is trustworthy.
And that’s how He wants you to know Him, so that you will want to know Him, and you too can trust Him.
