Isaiah 45 – I will go before you

Earlier this year, my mom asked me to read Isaiah 45:1-5 and it has become one of my favorite bible chapters.

I will go before you
    and will level the mountains…

Isaiah 45:2

“This is what the Lord says to his anointed,
    to Cyrus, whose right hand I take hold of
to subdue nations before him
    and to strip kings of their armor,
to open doors before him
    so that gates will not be shut:
I will go before you
    and will level the mountains[a];
I will break down gates of bronze
    and cut through bars of iron.
I will give you hidden treasures,
    riches stored in secret places,
so that you may know that I am the Lord,
    the God of Israel, who summons you by name.
For the sake of Jacob my servant,
    of Israel my chosen,
I summon you by name
    and bestow on you a title of honor,
    though you do not acknowledge me.
I am the Lord, and there is no other;
    apart from me there is no God. I will strengthen you,
    though you have not acknowledged me.

NB: This chapter inspired my new business ‘name’. I cannot wait to share it with you…
