The nations shall see your righteousness. And all the kings your glory, and you shall be called by a new name that the mouth of the LORD will give. Isaiah 62:2 (ESV)
God speaks of His plan of giving His people a new identity when Jerusalem and Zion begin to display righteousness and glory they have received from Him. Other nations will see these qualities.
Just think! God gives each of His people new names. Known only to Him. In the context (verse 4), He tells the people He will not think of them as “Forsaken” or “Desolate” but as “My Delight is in Her.” I love this latter term. God’s delight is in those who follow Him.
The LORD looks at those who submit their lives to Him with different eyes, eyes of tenderness and love. Because that is His nature. When we accept Jesus as Lord of our lives, should we also those around us with different eyes—His eyes? Our LORD teaches us how to respond to unsettling circumstance. When we hear things that bother us, He tells us to take those issues to Him, first. Our hearts would be so much lighter and our lives easier if we would remember to take this one simple step.
