"I, even I, have spoken: yea, I have called him: I have brought him, and he shall make his way prosperous. Come ye near unto me, hear ye this; I have not spoken in secret from the beginning; from the time that it was, there am I: and now the Lord GOD, and his Spirit, hath sent me. Thus saith the LORD, thy Redeemer, the Holy One of Israel; I am the LORD thy God which teacheth thee to profit, which leadeth thee by the way that thou shouldest go" (Isaiah 48:15-17).
Think back to that moment when it really dawned on you that God loves you just as you are-saved forever, every sin paid for, seated above, and quickened by grace. What a thrill it was to finally hear someone say, "God loves you; He wants to live inside of you." You did not doubt-you were sure of it. You believed it, and just like that you were going to heaven.
But right now, while we are still on earth, God wants to make our way prosperous. "…Surely blessing I will bless thee, and multiplying I will multiply thee" (Hebrews 6:14). He will teach us to profit and show us the way we should go.
