Discussion for Isaiah 42:9

  • I like this can you make in clear Please
  • During some prayer time, the Holy Spirit brought to my remembrance this phrase "before they spring forth." God tells us His good plans, His promises BEFORE we actually see them. It is so important to be listening for the spoken word of God, the quickened counsel, encouragement that He best can give to us. Googling this phrase brought me to this website; seeing the context of this verse provides even more blessing and confirmation to continue to wait expectantly for the fulfillment of these spoken treasures.
