10. God is trustworthy.
Trust seems in short supply these days. Is the stranger across from you foe or friend? Is the neighbor a pedophile? We teach our children to be aware of strangers. Mistrust is the order of the day. Shootings. Hatred. Suspicion. Is it any wonder that trusting God can be so difficult? But He is the most trustworthy one we will ever encounter. He is constant and consistent. His love never fails and He faithfully pursues. He longs for us to accept His offering of love. Let’s say yes together. Let’s try trusting God.
"You will keep in perfect peace those whose minds are steadfast, because they trust in you. 4 Trust in the LORD forever, for the LORD, the LORD himself, is the Rock eternal," Isaiah 26:3-4.
Isaiah paints a beautiful picture of God’s heart. He is worthy of trust, full of revelation, and holy. He comforts, guides, redeems, renames, and saves us. Do you know this God? Or is your interpretation of God filled with mistrust, judgement, and confusion? Read Isaiah with new eyes. Ask the Holy Spirit to open the eyes of your heart so that you may see God the way He longs to be seen. He loves you. He calls you to holiness, and He provides a way to His heart through the death and resurrection of Jesus.
