For My own sake, for My own sake, I will do it; for how should My name be profaned? And I will not give My glory to another. – Isaiah 48:11
The unfolding of God’s sovereign will is dependent on His finished work. His Word is established, from the end to the beginning. His decrees will stand and His pleasure will unfold. The times and seasons have been set, His plan is in motion and nothing will deter its purpose. The Sovereign God is seeing to it that His Name is glorified. He has shut the portals of promise and set them on their errand. His light has shone upon the waters, and His rain upon the righteous and the wicked alike. His faithfulness will be seen and His truth exalted.
“For when God made a promise to Abraham, because He could swear by no one greater, he swore by Himself, saying, ‘Surely blessing I will bless you, and multiplying I will multiply you’. And so, after he had patiently endured, he obtained the promise.” Hebrews 6:13-15. Because the Lord is determined to save the righteous, we will be saved! Because He has determined to bless us, we are blessed! Nothing and no one will and can change it. It is neither by might nor by power, and it is not for our sakes, it is all for His Name’s sake! Hallelujah!
