Springtime Promises

Spring is here!  We made it through the winter, and finally, the sun is shining, the flowers are coming up, and it’s time to send the snow shovels for a long vacation.  As I was walking the other day and witnessing a glorious sunrise, the parallels between spring and God’s promises came to mind.  Even though the winter may seem long, spring will always come.  We can count on it.  Likewise, we can count on God’s promises always coming true—even if they seem impossible or far-off, they will happen. God gives his personal guarantee on this, and He backs it up with a plethora of examples.   I’ve been reading through Isaiah lately, and time after time the Lord gives a promise of a future event, and then reminds us of how the promises He made to Abraham, to Jacob, to all of Israel always came true.  We see how incredibly detailed His promises about Christ’s coming were, and how every single one came true.  Throughout His word, He gives us promises about our lives right now, assuring that He will always be with us and will always be our Rock and our Redeemer.  Finally, His promises about heaven and being forever in His presence are not just fairy tales, or just nice thoughts.  They are true!  May we cling to Him today, and know that He promises to hear our prayers and to help us.  May we praise Him today, as we see the power of His Creation unfold in spring.  Our God is mighty!
