I have come to realize from scriptures that as a New Testament believer, God does not forget you. He will never leave you nor forsake you. He will never abandon you. He will always be there for you. In today’s bible text, God is simply saying stop running! Your sins have been dealt with! The ancient Prophet Isaiah was looking prophetically in advance at what Christ will do for us.
The book of Ephesians says we have redemption in Christ, even the forgiveness of sins. In other words, God is saying, I have blotted your sin out. I have wiped it out. God has destroyed it as a thick cloud. He says I don’t see sin in you. I see what I have done. I see my faithfulness in you. That is why I don’t call you by what you look, I call you by what I made you. I call you blessed. I called you delivered. Let the weak say I am strong. Let the sick say I am healed. Let the poor say I am rich. God calls you a joyful mother of children. He calls the things that be not as though they were and they come into existence.
You must see from God’s perspective. You won’t catch God calling you what you are passing through. He calls you what you will become. He says, “I have blotted out, as a thick cloud, thy transgressions, and as a cloud, thy sins: return unto me…” Beloved, stop running from God. Don’t hide from Him. God has redeemed you. He has not only redeemed you, He has glorified Himself in you. He has glorified Himself in your family, your marriage, your business and your job. Hallelujah! He sees only good in you. He has set you free. Walk in this consciousness and expect good always.
