Yahweh calls me by name


timidity by simms

Reading in Isaiah 45:1-8, I am impressed as God dominates this passage. The great king Cyrus is like a puppet in his hands. God is unlike any other–Yahweh, the God of Israel–there is no other, there is no other God v5, v6.
v5 I am Yahweh, there is no other
v6 I am Yahweh, there is no other
v7 I am Yahweh, who does all these things
v8 I Yahweh have created.

Only one actor is on the stage and that actor is God! The only appropriate action is to bow down and worship Him. Yes, yes, yes!

And yet, this OTHER one, calls me by name–He personally knows me.
v3 it is I, Yahweh who calls you by your name
v4 I call you by your name
v4 I name you
v5 I equip you
Such tenderness, such care, such love for me. Thank you Lord.
