Sixth Day of Christmas--Wednesday

Updated: Jan 1

Text: Isaiah 25:1-9

Prayer Pointers:

For renewed trust in the Lord God

To be the trustworthy neighbor

For those who work in supply and maintenance chains

TAKING ANY ACTION IN OUR WORLD depends on trust. Stepping on the airplane means trusting the long line of people who have built, inspected, repaired, maintained and flown the plane. Buying food or medicine? Same high level of trust for all those whom we will likely never meet. Getting in the car to drive around the corner to that grocery or pharmacy or airport demands a high level of trust.

Yet we do these activities, and many others, without a thought.

Isaiah calls on his people to trust in the Lord, to be confident that the Lord, who holds all of us in his hands, is as trustworthy as the countless strangers that have a part in feeding us, clothing us and ensuring that we arrive at our destination. The Lord has acted to save us—he has come in the flesh, never to be separated from us. The Lord is our light and our salvation—what reason do we have to be afraid?
