A Message and a Promise

"Say to the righteous, that it shall be well with them." (Isaiah 3:10 NKJV)

Missing church on Sunday leaves a hole in my week that is difficult to patch up. A chronic illness makes this absence unavoidable at times, but I can always count on this loving message and sincere promise when it occurs: "Tell Bethany I'll be praying for her." Knowing the one who faithfully sends me this message, I'm always confident the promise has already been kept.

Recently, I discovered a similar message in God's Word and a promise as sure as the One Who sent it: "Say to the righteous, that it shall be well with them." (Isaiah 3:10)

This message was sent to a nation unsure of God's ways. And the promise it contains is for those in the same situation. Those full of questions yet righteous in Christ have this promise: ". . . It shall be well with them." No matter the doubts, the frustrations, the "wish-things-were-different" thinking that takes our affection off things above, in Christ, we can be confident that it will be well with us.

Knowing the God who made this promise, we can be sure it is strong enough to lean on.

And it takes no strength to lean.

Father, Help us to lean our weakness and our questions on Your promises. We praise You for being as certain as the promises You've sent. Thank You for the assurance that because of Christ, it will be well with us. In His Name. Amen.
