Isaiah 12:1-2 and Grace Upon Grace

praise1The Good News is that God is not angry with us, loves us, and wants to be in relationship with us. It is up to us to accept this reality and live into it. This hymn in Isaiah is wonderful at explaining this:

You will say on that day:
“I thank you, Lord.
Though you were angry with me,
    your anger turned away and you comforted me.
God is indeed my salvation;
    I will trust and won’t be afraid.
Yah, the Lord, is my strength and my shield;
    he has become my salvation.”

There may be estrangement now, and God may be angry with our sins now, but when we choose to be in relationship with him through Jesus Christ, this is our hymn!
