Isaiah 45:15-19 Truly, O God of Israel, our Savior, you work in mysterious ways. All craftsmen who make idols will be humiliated . . . But the Lord will save the people of Israel with eternal salvation . . . “I am the Lord,” he says, “and there is no other. . . I would not have told the people to seek me if I could not be found. I, the Lord, speak only what is true and declare only what is right.”
My just-turned-one-year-old grandson Caleb loves playing his version of hide and seek. He loves to be found. He gets so excited he can hardly contain his delight. His joy in turn delights me.
That’s what popped into my mind when I read these verses. Like Caleb, God wants me to find him! He is thrilled when I do! And his joy in turn not only delights but heals me; it makes me whole and well. That’s what the word “save” means.
