Isaiah 45:4 For the sake of my servant Jacob, and Israel my chosen, I call you by your name, I name you, though you do not know me. I am the LORD; there is no other God. I have equipped you for battle, though you don’t even know me,
In one’s job description, if your wages are tied in to your ability to meet the demands of your employer or consumer, then the primary intention would be to know what those demands are. In some cases however, there is no direct link between consumer and provider hence, operations are done on the basis of near absolute anonymity – the absence of personal knowledge of the other.
There are sponsors who are anonymous with their good deeds, they are unknown by those whom they sponsor for reasons including choice or because the opportunity for a formal introduction has not presented itself. That was what Isaiah highlights as present between Israel and God: ‘even though they did not know Him, He still worked for them, moving things in their favour and as we read ‘arming them as an army supports its ‘ally’, only in this case, the ally does not realise the source of the support.
By extension then, what then would such a relationship progress to when there is a successful transition to include knowledge of? What happens when there is an exchange of personal knowledge? When there is better
understanding of the systems and methods of God?
What could be when there is an appreciation for his ways of operation?
What would be if the God who knows became known too?
Beloved, we are looking at a dive into very deep waters, rich in resources and positive intentions because with knowledge of God’s modus operandi, the collection of his plans and purposes for our lives, we will live bolder and with more confidence. Sweetheart, its about God’s modus operandi – get to know it.
