There’s nothing God wants more than for people to turn to him in faith. God is our deliverance. God is our strength.
He is the deliverance and strength of the entire world. And, as Isaiah told the Israelites, “there is no other.”
He has earned our worship and thanksgiving. But even if we don’t believe that, our knees will recognize it one day, anyway.
So why not make the turn now?
Listen to the sound of God’s mercy and forgiveness. Hear the comforting notes of God’s faithfulness and love, his deliverance and strength. Recognize the pleading voice of your Creator and Redeemer.
And let those grace notes pull you around to Jesus, your Savior.
“Turn to me and be saved, all you ends of the earth; for I am God, and there is no other. By myself I have sworn, my mouth has uttered in all integrity a word that will not be revoked: Before me every knee will bow; by me every tongue will swear. They will say of me, ‘In the Lord alone are deliverance and strength.’” All who have raged against him will come to him and be put to shame. But all the descendants of Israel will find deliverance in the Lord and will make their boast in him” (Isaiah 45:22-25, NIV).
Lord, I hear your voice. I am so grateful for the gospel. May the sweet music of your grace turn my heart toward your merciful heart for forgiveness, new life and salvation.
