God's Goodness

I’ll make a list of God’s gracious dealings,
all the things God has done that need praising,
All the generous bounties of God,
his great goodness to the family of Israel—
Compassion lavished,
love extravagant.
He said, “Without question these are my people,
children who would never betray me.”
So he became their Savior.
In all their troubles,
he was troubled, too.
He didn’t send someone else to help them.
He did it himself, in person.

Out of his own love and pity
he redeemed them.
He rescued them and carried them along
for a long, long time.
Isaiah 63:7-9 Message

I listened to some amazing testimonies on God TV where there were testimonies of Arabs, Iranians, and Jews who received salvation through Jesus Christ. The Iranian man begs us to pray for the harvest of souls that is happening in Iran today.

“I made myself accessible
to those who didn’t ask for me,
I let myself be found
by those who didn’t seek me.
I said, ‘Here I am! Here I am!’
to a nation not called by my name."
Isaiah 65:1
