Thus says the Lord, your Redeemer, and He who formed you from the womb: “I am the Lord, Who makes all things, Who stretches out the heavens all alone, Who spreads abroad the earth by Myself;
Who frustrates the signs of the babblers, and drives diviners mad; Who turns wise men backward, and makes their knowledge foolishness;
Who confirms the word of His servant, and performs the counsel of His messengers; Who says to Jerusalem, ‘You shall be inhabited,’ to the cities of Judah, ‘You shall be built,’ and I will raise up her waste places;
Who says to the deep, ‘Be dry! And “I will dry up your rivers’;
Who says of Cyrus, ‘He is My shepherd, and he shall perform all My pleasure, saying to Jerusalem, “You shall be built,” and to the temple, “Your foundation shall be laid.”’
King Cyrus didn’t have any when he realized these words were written hundreds of years before he was even born!
PRAY WITH CONFIDENCE THAT THE LORD’S WORD WILL COME TO FULFILLMENT
