February 26, 2016 • Isaiah 45
Ever since the fall of man in the Garden of Eden, God has been on a mission to redeem his people and restore his kingdom. Yet as Christians we regularly lament the state of the world in which we live; we question God's ways and his plans because they challenge our expectations and understandings. But God has already proven he is sovereign and that he has ultimate control; human will and human choices will not change his final outcome. We have hope because we can see that in Christ, God fulfilled the promises he made to restore and rebuild Israel through the prophet Isaiah and that he will use the most unlikely people as the means to accomplish his mission.
