I foretold the former things long ago,
My mouth announced them and I made them known;
then suddenly I acted, and they came to pass.
(The Lord reminds us that He knows the future
and speaks it into being long before it comes to pass.
Beginning with creation itself, He reminds us
that His mere word creates, that His mere word translates into action.
He wants us to know that His word prevails.
He wants us to know that even when we are acting independently from Him,
He will cause what He has proclaimed to happen.
And just so we know for sure that He, God, has proclaimed what is and is to come,
He speaks the future forth before it is and before we ever see it unfold.
He has spoken into our lives the truths of His covenant,
and they will come to pass as we continue to walk in His purposes.)
May the Lord richly bless you this day!
In Christ's love,
