“Have I no power to deliver?” Isaiah 50:2
It is an election year, and sadly for us living in Iowa, it is an election year. Our phones never stop ringing and our mailboxes are always full. Full of what? Empty promises! If there were ever to be a politician who made no promises but only expressed his ideas of how things should be done, he wouldn’t be given a moments attention. It is promises that people love and it is the failure to fulfill those promises that people hate. With man there is simply no way to fix a broken world.
But with God? With God there is fulfillment. God has never made a promise He has not kept or will not keep. He promised a redeemer. He gave Him. He promised forgiveness of sin. He gave Him. He promised peace, perfect peace, and He gave Him. He promised the certainty of the resurrection and everlasting life and He gave Him. He promised to deliver us and He gave us the Deliverer. Yes, He has the power to keep His promises.
Dear Father, Open our eyes to see the power of Your word and the certainty of Your promises. Amen.
The Friday Benediction
Until Monday, my friends, may the good God envelop you with His grace; may you prove the common confession of faith, “I believe in the holy Christian church and in the fellowship of the saints”, and may you be enriched with joy and hope as you exercise that confession this weekend. Amen
