Read: Isaiah 44:24-28(NKJV)

44:24. Thus says the LORD, your Redeemer, And He who formed you from the womb: “I [am] the LORD, who makes all [things,] Who stretches out the heavens all alone, Who spreads abroad the earth by Myself;
44:25. Who frustrates the signs of the babblers, And drives diviners mad; Who turns wise men backward, And makes their knowledge foolishness;
44:26. Who confirms the word of His servant, And performs the counsel of His messengers; Who says to Jerusalem, ‘You shall be inhabited,’ To the cities of Judah, ‘You shall be built,’ And I will raise up her waste places;
44:27. Who says to the deep, ‘Be dry! And I will dry up your rivers’;
44:28. Who says of Cyrus, ‘[He is] My shepherd, And he shall perform all My pleasure, Saying to Jerusalem, “You shall be built,” And to the temple, “Your foundation shall be laid.” ‘

ANGLICAN COMMUNION DEVOTIONAL OUTLINE  FOR 19TH DECEMBER 2023.

We have a fantastic description of some attributes of God in this passage: He is our redeemer; He formed us from the womb; He made all things; He stretches out the heavens all alone; He spreads abroad the earth all by Himself (v.24); He frustrates the signs of babblers; makes diviners mad; turns wise men backward and makes their knowledge foolishness (v.25), etc.

All these have implications for us. No one should take God for granted. All that is said of Him above are true. For example, He turned the good and workable counsel of Ahithophel the Gilonite into foolishness when David prayed. Ahithophel, presumably refused to forgive David for what he did with Bathsheba, being her grandfather.

He perhaps found a convenient excuse to pay David back in some way. However, he failed to countenance one attribute of God: His forgiveness. David confessed and truly repented, so God forgave him. This made God stand by him again as before. Failure to reckon with God’s attributes can put us on His wrong side.

Are you reckoning with His attributes? He is our redeemer, for example. Have you allowed Him to redeem your soul? Have you been battered and broken down? Hear again, one of His attributes:“Saying to Jerusalem, you shall be built”(v.26). He is able to rebuild you. Just let Him.
