But God will save

Isaiah 45:15-19 Truly, O God of Israel, our Savior, you work in mysterious ways. All craftsmen who make idols will be humiliated . . . But the Lord will save the people of Israel with eternal salvation . . . “I am the Lord,” he says, “and there is no other. . . I would not have told the people to seek me if I could not be found. I, the Lord, speak only what is true and declare only what is right.”

My just-turned-one-year-old grandson Caleb loves playing his version of hide and seek. He loves to be found. He gets so excited he can hardly contain his delight. His joy in turn delights me.

Caleb reaching out

That’s what popped into my mind when I read these verses. Like Caleb, God wants me to find him! He is thrilled when I do! And his joy in turn not only delights but heals me; it makes me whole and well. That’s what the word “save” means.

How will you seek–and find–the Lord this Advent?

One way is to dive into the wealth offered by this website:

I invite you to join me in seeking, and finding, the Lord during these precious days of Advent. So much joy awaits us!

One thought on “But God will save

  1. Undoubtedly we have a lot to learn from little children! Thanks for highlighting the quality of delight. I need to grow in that in relationship to God, in relationship to experiencing His delight and in relationship to being delighted with others. Just a little eensy weensy bit, maybe, huh?
