Because of His Faithfulness
Tuesday, April 7
One of my fondest childhood memories is of going to my aunt’s house every Easter and embarking on an epic Easter egg hunt. With a laser sharp memory and steely determination, I set out each year to beat my record of collected eggs from the previous year. My mood after the Easter egg hunt depended on whether I reached my goal. If things turned out less than desirable, well, let’s just say I was not much fun to be around.
Thank goodness God operates differently. God’s love does not depend on conditions. God is faithful and sacrificial. God’s character never changes. It is because of his faithfulness that we get to share in the good news of Jesus. The prophet Isaiah reminds us of this in today’s Scripture.
As a result of what we read today in God’s word, let us reflect on our gratitude for God’s faithfulness.
Jesus, thank you for your faithfulness. Your sacrificial love speaks to your unchanging character. Great are you, Lord! AMEN.
