O LORD, You are my God; I will exalt You, I will give thanks to Your name; For You have worked wonders, Plans formed long ago, with perfect faithfulness.Isaiah 25:1(NASB)
God has always had a remnant of believers who trust His Word, believe His promises, and give glory to His name, even when the experiences of the life and the ungodly behaviours of others seem to indicate the reverse.
Isaiah was warning of the coming great day of judgement, the great and terrible 'Day of the Lord' and 'Time of Jacob's Trouble', the coming Tribulation Period when God will pour out His wrath on a Christ rejecting sinful world. But even in that terrible seven-year period, which will follow the any-day Rapture of the Church into heaven, Isaiah writes of a little remnant that will bow their knee to the Lord and lift up their voices in joyful praise and worship to God, singing: "O LORD, You are my God; I will exalt You; I will praise Your name, for You have done wonderful things, plans formed of old, faithful and sure."
What an amazing time of revival and restoration this will be, juxtaposed with the terrors of the Tribulation Period. No wonder they will lift their voices in joyful praise to the Lord their God Who is faithful and true, and Who will never leave them nor forsake them.
Never forget that no matter what trials and tribulations we face in this Church Age, let us be part of today's little flock who trusts God's Word, believes His promises, gives glory to His name, and lifts up our voices in joyful praise and worship: "Lord, You are my God; I will exalt You, I will give thanks to Your name; For You have worked wonders, Plans formed long ago, with perfect faithfulness."
Dear Heavenly Father, You are my God, my Lord, and my salvation. I will praise Your name forever and ever, for You have done wonderful things for me and for all who trust in Your unfailing goodness and mercy. Praise the Lord O my soul, and let all that is within me glorify and worship His holy name. In Jesus' name I pray, AMEN.
