Reading in Isaiah lately and I paused to reflect on the last verse in Isaiah 49 where it reads, “…And all flesh will know that I, the Lord, am your Savior and your Redeemer, the Mighty One of Jacob.” I often think and wish for that day!
When I see injustice, hurt and pain in the lives of fellow Christians, I often look ahead to the Hope we all have in that day when, “all flesh will know.” When I see the evil and sin that plagues those that have rejected our Lord, I’m reminded that their justice will come on that day when, “all flesh will know.” In many praise songs that speak of His grace and mercy, I sing with all my heart and smile from ear to ear as I picture that day when, “all flesh will know.”
And many times after I come out of the euphoria of picturing Him in all His Glory and Majesty, I’m quickly reminded of my call on this earth to labor for the harvest. As Paul speaks of in Acts 20:24, “that I may finish my race with joy, and the ministry which I received from the Lord Jesus, to testify to the gospel of the grace of God.”
May we be reminded of the numerous promises of God that not only points to our future hope in being united with Him, but the promises He gives us as we labor in the fields of this fallen world to glorify Him each and everyday. To God the glory.
