Look up. What do you see?
Where I live, I see mountains all around. Tall and immovable. They’ve been there a long time, standing sentry over the valley below.
God prompted Isaiah to write about the mountains and hills, saying that one day they might be moved, destroyed… gone. BUT EVEN THEN, His covenant of blessing upon those whom He had made covenant with would stand.
Just because we don’t see the fulfillment doesn’t mean they aren’t filled. Isaiah shared many promises of God that he didn’t live to see come to fruition, yet he lived as though they were already a done deal. We can live that way, too.
There is comfort in knowing that the covenant promises God made to His children will stand, regardless what happens in the world around us. He will always love us, protect us, and care for us. He will always call us His treasure. He will always call us His children. The entire earth could be destroyed and yet, His promise is sure.
We have to be sure our trust is in the right place.
- Are we trusting in the tangible that we see or in the intangible God who created the tangible?
- Are we living toward the end of life or the continuation of life in a different place?
- Are we serving the Creator or the creation?
Even if our trust isn’t in the right place, His covenant with us is sure and unchanging. He doesn’t write caveats every couple years based on the behaviors of His people.
Are you trusting this God Who has great mercy on you? Are you leaning on Him, knowing that He cares for you? Do you believe in Him? Do you believe Him?
Let’s trust God today to keep His promises to us and live our lives as though those promises are already completed. Faith in action.
