A Short Study of Isaiah 43:6

“Bring my sons from far.”
(Isaiah 43:6)

This is God’s command in the execution of His providence. He says to all things, “Bring my sons from far” (Romans 8:28-30); and creation obeys His command. Everything that happens in the mysterious movements of providence is under God’s control and works by His sovereign power and purpose for the salvation of His people. Long before regenerating grace comes to the chosen, prevenient grace watches over them, orders their steps, and keeps them from going down to the pit, because God has found a ransom for them. This is beautifully illustrated in Hosea 2:6-8. Read Psalm 107 and see how that providence obeys God’s command for the salvation of His elect. “Oh that men would praise the LORD for his goodness, and for his wonderful works to the children of men!” (Psalm 107:31)
