“…and you shall know [with an acquaintance and understanding based on and grounded in personal experience] that I am the Lord; for they shall not be put to shame who wait for, look for, hope for, and expect Me.” Isaiah 49:23b ->me: [THEY SHALL NOT BE PUT TO SHAME…] being the operative phrase here. Today the Lord is telling me that I need to WAIT FOR…Live each day as if Jesus is coming back tomorrow. LOOK FOR…constantly seeking to know the character of the One True God. HOPE FOR…having a peace about the future because my hope is not secure in anything temporal; it is secure in the eternal future I hold on to. EXPECT THE LORD…I should have an unshakeable faith that transcends the popular thinking of the ungodly world I live in today. —When I do these things, God promises that I will not be put to shame.
