Promises



Daily reading: Isaiah 40:1-11
Friday December 11, 2015

Focus passage: Here is the LORD God, coming with strength, with a triumphant arm, bringing his reward with him and his payment before him. Isaiah 40:10

We all make promises and when someone makes one for us, we expect action.  Broken promises erode trust while promises that are kept set us in motion and cast the future for us.

When God promises to make a way to us, it sets us in motion.
We are to actively wait, trusting in God’s promise to bring us comfort and peace.  We are to live into the reality that God is already present removing the obstacles that are in the way of us receiving God’s peace and comfort.

Prayer: God who calls us away from our daily routines, who desires us to follow you on unknown paths, open me to your presence today.  Amen.
