There is no greater praise of God than when His people are able to say, “He has done great things!” Deliverance by God and the provision of God are just a few of the many ways in which we can praise Him for His goodness and grace. As His children, there is not a day that goes by where we lack cause to praise Him. He is always active in and around our lives, oftentimes, in ways that we can’t even see. And in Isaiah 12, a very short chapter consisting of just six verses, Isaiah lets the people of Judah know that there is a day coming when they will give praise and thanks to God for His salvation. As with the last chapter, Isaiah is speaking of a future day when God will intercede for His rebellious and unrepentant people, replacing His well-earned wrath with undeserved mercy and grace. By the time God is done delivering and transforming them, they will know that it has all happened according to His power and in keeping with His promises to them. He will have done great things and they will gladly give Him glory.
