Today’s devotion for today is based on Isaiah 25:9 ”On that day they will say, “Surely this is our God; we trusted in him, and he saved us. This is the Lord, we trusted in him; let us rejoice and be glad in his salvation.”
Each day seems to bring more bad news, another reason for disillusionment. Your world isn’t getting any better. Your cross hasn’t gotten any lighter. So is it worth it? Isaiah, in his picture of the great banquet, assures us that it will most certainly be worth it. He paints a vivid scene of trust given and richly rewarded.
Today, we must live by faith and not by sight. We trust that God exists, has created us, is always with us, works what’s best for us, loves us, and is merciful to us for Jesus’ sake. One day our eyes will see things that today our hearts only know by faith. One day, we will see Jesus face to face and rejoice that hope has finally and forever changed to reality.
Please pray with me the prayer for today: Heavenly Father, creator, and sustainer of all things, seen and unseen, bless me and keep my faith strong until the day I see you face to face. In the name of Jesus, I pray. Amen.
