Morning by Morning, January 1 - New Year with the Faithful One Who "Will Make a Way in the Wilderness"
now it springs forth, do you not perceive it?
I will make a way in the wilderness
and rivers in the desert" (Isaiah 43:19).
"But now thus says the Lord,
He who created you, O Jacob,
He who formed you, O Israel:
Do not fear, for I have redeemed you;
I have called you by name, you are Mine.
and through the rivers, they shall not overwhelm you;
when you walk through fire you shall not be burned,
and the flame shall not consume you.
the Holy One of Israel, your Savior.
I give Egypt as your ransom,
Ethiopia and Seba in exchange for you.
and honored, and I love you,
I give people in return for you,
nations in exchange for your life.
and My servant whom I have chosen,
so that you may know and believe Me
and understand that I AM He.
Before Me no god was formed,
nor shall there be any after Me.
and besides Me there is no Savior" (v. 10-11)
