Isaiah – Chapter 63

God’s Justification

This chapter seems to be God’s reply to Isaiah’s prayer from chapter 64. He is providing justifications for how he has disciplined the Israelites. Verse 1 is very interesting:

1 “I revealed myself to those who did not ask for me;

I was found by those who did not seek me.

To a nation that did not call on my name,

I said, ‘Here am I, here am I.’

It sounds like God is talking about gentile nations. It’s awesome that God – his work, his teachings, his mercy, his grace, and salvation –isn’t exclusive.
