DAY ONE: BEFORE


The Redeemer of Israel

43 But now, thus says the Lord, who created you, O Jacob, And He who formed you, O Israel: “Fear not, for I have redeemed you; I have called you by your name; You are Mine. 2 When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; And through the rivers, they shall not overflow you. When you walk through the fire, you shall not be burned, Nor shall the flame scorch you. 3 For I am the Lord your God, The Holy One of Israel, your Savior; I gave Egypt for your ransom, Ethiopia and Seba in your place. 4 Since you were precious in My sight, You have been honored, And I have loved you; Therefore I will give men for you, And people for your life. 5 Fear not, for I am with you; I will bring your descendants from the east, And gather you from the west; 6 I will say to the north, ‘Give them up!’ And to the south, ‘Do not keep them back!’ Bring My sons from afar, And My daughters from the ends of the earth— 7 Everyone who is called by My name, Whom I have created for My glory; I have formed him, yes, I have made him.”

8 Bring out the blind people who have eyes, And the deaf who have ears. 9 Let all the nations be gathered together, And let the people be assembled. Who among them can declare this, And show us former things? Let them bring out their witnesses, that they may be justified; Or let them hear and say, “It is truth.” 10 “You are My witnesses,” says the Lord, “And My servant whom I have chosen, That you may know and believe Me, And understand that I am He. Before Me there was no God formed, Nor shall there be after Me. 11 I, even I, am the Lord, And besides Me there is no savior. 12 I have declared and saved, I have proclaimed, And there was no foreign god among you; Therefore you are My witnesses,” Says the Lord, “that I am God. 13 Indeed before the day was, I am He; And there is no one who can deliver out of My hand; I work, and who will reverse it?”

14 Thus says the Lord, your Redeemer, The Holy One of Israel: “For your sake I will send to Babylon, And bring them all down as fugitives— The Chaldeans, who rejoice in their ships. 15 I am the Lord, your Holy One, The Creator of Israel, your King.”


-The Lord names His people you are Mine, He together with His Father and the Holy Spirit, created man and will assume human nature … Christ will PASS THROUGH every affliction with us: taking sin, suffering, and death on Himself; overthrowing our adversaries; and offering us His salvation … God will gather His Church from all NATIONS … Christ is the SERVANT – (v. 10), CHOSEN by the Father to bear WITNESS to all mankind – (John 8:18) …


“Let the Bible teach and preach itself” …


Small reading from The Chosen 40 Day challenge …


1: What parts of your “BEOFRE” has God redeemed, and which are you most grateful for??? The Lord redeemed me from myself, I was traveling a path that was spiritually dead … I was struggling with PTSD, TBI and other anxieties associated from time over in Iraq … I’m thankful He called me a notable sinner to be a teacher of His way …


2: How does “I have called you by name, you are mine” impact you today??? I’m now a Teacher of His Word, I have become a vessel for the Lord to use even with the good, the bad, and the ugly … The Lord uses imperfect people and imperfect time and places to accomplish His Will …


3: What do you fear, and how does Isaiah 43:1 – this declaration made by God to His chosen ones – affect your fear??? I have three fears: FEAR (1): I fear letting the Lord down because of one my greatest weaknesses is my zeal … I can become easily triggered by those who attack my ministry … FEAR (2): The same as above the fear of letting my family down, I pray daily I serve them the best way I can … FEAR (3): That I never leave this world unable to make amends to all my brothers and sisters in Christ if I ever wrong any of them, I pray daily to God that I continue to live a life of repentance and cleansing …



Prayer Focus:

Thank the Father for knowing your name and calling it- and for identifying you as His … Thank Him for redeeming you from your “BEFORE”, then ask Him to help you through any remaining challenges …


Psalm 1 Prayer as part of our prayer focus …
