Verse of the Day 6-17-22

In that day you will say:
“I will praise you, LORD.
Although you were angry with me,
your anger has turned away
and you have comforted me.
Surely God is my salvation;
I will trust and not be afraid.
The LORD, the LORD himself, is my strength and my defense;
he has become my salvation. ”
With joy you will draw water
from the wells of salvation.
In that day you will say:
“Give praise to the LORD, proclaim his name;
make known among the nations what he has done,
and proclaim that his name is exalted.
Sing to the LORD, for he has done glorious things;
let this be known to all the world.
Shout aloud and sing for joy, people of Zion,
for great is the Holy One of Israel among you. ” Isaiah 12:1-6

Just as Israel’s exodus out of Egypt and through the Red Sea (Exodus 12-14) led to a song of praise (Exodus 15), so the future and climatic exodus of God’s people (the end of Isaiah 11) will lead to a song of praise (Isaiah 12). They will sing of God’s turned-away anger, which will be replaced by comfort. Their hearts will see God as trustworthy and worthy of worship. God is their salvation (vv. 2-3). The people will be so moved and humbled by God’s grand work that they will announce it with global praise; his name will be exalted among the nations for the glorious things he has done (vv. 4-6). The inauguration of the new creation in Christ Jesus is the basis for our posture of praise now, even though God has not yet finished applying the victory of the cross. The jubilant tone of Isaiah 12 will ultimately be realized in the forever fellowship of God and his people in the glorified cosmos.
