4 Actions to Take with God {Memorize Isaiah 12:4}

Welcome to Week 4  of our 6-week memory challenge to learn Isaiah 12 during Lent with Do Not Depart.

Isaiah 12_4

MEMORIZE

And you will say in that day: “Give thanks to the LORD, call upon his name, make known his deeds among the peoples, proclaim that his name is exalted.”
Isaiah 12:4 (ESV)

TO DO THIS WEEK

Make a quick comparison between Isaiah 12:1 and Isaiah 12:4.

verse 1
You will say in that day: “I will give thanks to you, O LORD, for though you were angry with me, your anger turned away, that you might comfort me.”

verse 4
And you will say in that day: “Give thanks to the LORD, call upon his name, make known his deeds among the peoples, proclaim that his name is exalted.”

These two verses have this in common: you will say in that day and give thanks to the Lord.

But Isaiah is now building on the original thought by adding more. Don’t just give thanks; also call on God’s name. Tell people about Him. Honor Him with your words.

During this season of Lent when we are emptying out ourselves to make more room for Christ, let’s continue to not only memorize the words from Isaiah 12, but also to participate in these four actions.

1. Thank God
2. Call on Him
3. Tell others about Him
4. Honor Him

God isn’t a prize sitting on a shelf. He is a living, active Being who wants to engage in your life and to be shared with others.

Collaborate with Him this week.
