Chosen One from Isaiah 42:1-2

"Take a good look at my servant.
I'm backing him to the hilt.
He's the one I chose,
and I couldn't be more pleased with him.
I've bathed him with my Spirit, my life.
He'll set everything right among the nations.
(the Message)

There is more to Your title, “Messiah”
Than we know.

YaHWeH chose Abraham to father
Many nations…and
Along the way
Asked him to sacrifice his
Only son.

YaHWeH chose Jacob to be heir
To Abraham…and
Along the way
Chose to permanently injure him
So that Jacob could learn
To tell the truth.

YaHWeH chose Moses to lead
His people to freedom…and
Along the way
Gave him 40 years
Of headache & deadly opposition.

YaHWeH chose David
As King & chief poet to
His Own people...and
Along the way
Made him pay fully…for
Each of his blunders
So that YaHWeH’s people
Would not think
That the I AM makes it easy
On the powerful
Without them paying a terrible cost.

YaHWeH chose You, Lord, as
His Messiah…for
All Israel
All nations
All the world.

Sent to You every test
Any of us could
EVER go through…and
Even more.
YaHWeH was with You…
Always…calling You,
“The One-Who-pleases-Me”

Along the way…that
YaHWeH asked You to walk
Was every demon
Known to Satan…seizing people
Destroying their families,
Their hearts…in the process…
You stepped up
As YaHWeH’s Chosen One
As the One-Promised-of-Old.
You destroyed Satan’s campaign
Of destruction…and
Even more amazingly gave to us
In the Name of YaHWeH
In the Person of the Most Holy Spirit
To destroy the enemy’s work!

Even as YaHWeH’s hand
Was heavy
On You…especially
At the end…
So too
His hand lifts us up
Even as
The weight of His calling
On our lives
Gives pause to us.

What we have
That You did NOT…is
Your example to study
Your pattern to follow
Your steps to show us the Way!

as YaHWeH's Own "Chosen One"
You were
You are…and
You will be amazing!
