“He is not here, for he has risen, as he said. Come, see the place where he lay.”
Matthew 28:6, emphasis added
God keeps His promises – He will do what He says He will do.
He has never broken a promise, not ever.
This morning I am caught up in the rhythm of believing – the every moment proclamation that God is, in fact, trustworthy. He did what He said He would do… freely, joyfully, and painfully enduring the cross so that we could come close and be reconciled. He suffered, as He said He would, on our behalf and for our ransom.
Then He rose, as He said He would, in victory over the grave and to secure our souls’ resurrection.
Just as He said.
He conquered death and offers us the every moment victory over the same. We are united with Him in His resurrection and invited to see just how trustworthy is our God.
Every moment, trustworthy.
Every moment, gracious.
Every moment, forgiving.
Every moment, loving.
Every moment, joyful over our reconciliation to Himself.
Every moment, keeping His promises.
I am moved to joyful belief because my God chooses to keep His promises to me.
