Isaiah 43: 5-9a, 10-12
Verses 11-12: “I, even I, am the Lord, and apart from me there is no savior. I have revealed and saved and proclaimed- I, and not some foreign god among you. You are my witnesses,“ declares the Lord, “that I am God.”
These words are so comforting to me this morning. God is constant. No matter what happens in my life or in my little world or in the huge world around me, God is present. I tend to be easily moved to anger and frustration. Sometimes it is hard for me to give up to God the details and allow the big picture to unfold. I want others to (always!) see and recognize when their demands are out of line. That’s not my job. God is in control. I don’t need to be happy every minute.
Father God, you are in control. From the first to the last, this does not change. I am thankful for your grace, which I do not deserve. Amen
