I will call a swift bird of prey from the east—a leader from a distant land to come and do my bidding. I have said what I would do, and I will do it. Isaiah 46:11
God through the prophet Isaiah was preparing the children of Israel for their deliverance from captivity. He was telling them not to be afraid from the idols that were in Babylon, and even warned them not to make any of their own, he didn’t need any help. These idols would not obstruct or impede in any way their deliverance. He brought to their memory and called upon the promises that God had given and already done on their behalf. He called them to trust in the power of the Lord, for his power was unquestioned. He will deliver on his promises and in spite of the unbelief of man, He would do what he said he would.
What an amazing declaration! It says that a bird of prey will be called by Him. It states that He will even use those situations we believe are bad to accomplish what he has promised. He will awaken someone half away around the world to perform his assignment, on our behalf. He will use you, yes you, to accomplish his will in ways that will amaze everyone. So it doesn’t matter where in the world you are right now. If he said it, he will do it. It doesn’t matter that your name is not recognized by the masses, or even acknowledge by those close to you. If he said it, he will do it. It doesn’t matter if you serve in high places or your present assignment is meager in the eyes of people. If he said it, he will do it. It doesn’t matter if you are the underdog, if he said it, he will do it. It doesn’t matter if you are oppressed and shunned by all. If he said it, he will do it. It doesn’t matter if this is the eleventh hour and all of the circumstances are against you and everything hangs on this moment, if he said it, he will do it.
Is this the end of your resources? Do you think that the promise that has been hanging in your heart will not come to pass? Let me tell you that what he said he will do, he will do it. It is not a promise made by a man, by an institution. It is made by Almighty God himself, and on verse 5, he asks the question; “To whom will you compare me? Who is my equal?, and on verse 9 He states “for I alone am God! I am God and there is none like me” He will perform, period. If he said it, he will do it. We don’t have to second guess him or analyze everything, we just need to trust Him.
You might not see things aligned the way you thought they would this very moment but don’t be discouraged, be certain of this today; If he said it, he will do it!
