“My hands have made both heaven and earth; they and everything in them are mine. I, the Lord, have spoken!” (Isaiah 66:2a NLT).


In the last chapter of Isaiah’s prophecy, the Lord reminds us that He is both Creator and Owner of all. There is nothing we can build for Him nor give Him that He doesn’t already own. Yet, He would have us humbly surrender our hearts to Him. For though we are the work of His hands, we have rebelled against His authority. What madness this is! That the creature would rebel against the Creator! But God has made a way for our reconciliation. He has sent His only Son to receive our punishment for rebellion that we might by grace through faith receive His reward for obedience. He offers those who would believe in Him, righteousness, Sonship, and eternal life in exchange for our unrighteousness, separation and death.
Our Creator has become our Redeemer!
PRAYER: Our Heavenly Father, thank You for creating us and designing us for relationship with You. Thank You for Jesus in whom we have redemption, so that we have received the rights of sonship. We come confidently into Your presence as Your children and lovingly call You our Abba, our Father. Meet our needs today and strengthen us to glorify You in all that we do. In Jesus’ name, amen.
