The promises of this passage are made to each of us. They are not automatic, though, and require a positive response on our part: “Seek the Lord while he may be found, call upon him while he is near.; let the wicked man forsake his way and the unrighteous man his thoughts, let him return to the Lord that he may have mercy on him and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon”(Isaiah 55:6-7). Nevertheless, they are sure and certain and we should rest confidently in them. It is God who has willed our salvation. It is God who has willed our peace. It is God who has willed the abundance of grace. Not only has he willed it, He has spoken it and when God speaks, it happens.
