“Draw near to me, hear this! From the beginning I have not spoken in secret, from the time it came to be I have been there.  And now the Lord God has sent me and his spirit.” Isaiah 48:16

Transparency is a real problem in the world. Many things are cloaked in secrecy. Hidden truth often leads to cynicism, anger and even conspiracy theories.  But God is fully transparent.  From the beginning God has promised to be faithful and history testifies that God has kept that promise.  God has also been clear about the expectations the creator of all that is, has for us. Sometimes we find God’s expectations restrictive, frustrating, and challenging.  But God has no hidden agendas or deceptive moments in history.

Especially in these pandemic times, it is important to remind ourselves and one another that God is consistent and transparent.  God’s promises can be trusted. The scriptures show us that God is not only a promise maker but more importantly God is a promise keeper.  From the beginning of creation God has been a nurturing God who pursues us when we stray away and is committed to being the shepherd that brings the one lost lamb home.  God is our “COVID Shepherd” who leads to still waters and green pastures—places of nourishment and rest.

Let us pray.  Thank you, God, for being clear that you are committed to walking with us. Thank you for being at the center of this pandemic, we cannot imagine how much worse things would be without you.  Bring peace, courage, and hope to those who are living with increased anxiety and depression.  Use each of us to bring light, hope, and love to those in need.  Amen.

Faithfully,

Tim

“Listen to me, O house of Jacob, all the remnant of the house of Israel, who have been borne by me from your birth, carried from the womb; even to your old age I am he, even when you turn gray I will carry you. I have made, and I will bear; I will carry and will save.” Isaiah 46:3-4

From cradle to grave God is faithful. In times of trouble and uncertainty we realize how important God is. I remember as a young child learning the prayer that started “Now I lay me down to sleep, and pray the Lord my soul to keep…” As I grew older, I learned the Lord’s prayer. As an adult I learned to pray prayers of desperation as people I loved were dying. Now most of my hair is gray and I am grateful that God has been a stabilizing force all the days of my life. As the hymn so poignantly says God was “there to hear my borning cry,” and God will “be there with one more surprise when I finally shut my weary eyes.”

There have been times when I have not been faithful but that never stopped God from loving. I believe God is faithful from cradle to grave. In these crazy times, it brings me comfort to know that God has that level of commitment to us and our wellbeing. The Psalmist wrote: “God is my refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.” How comforting it is to know that God has been present in our trouble for centuries and God has never once failed us. So, in good times and bad, we turn to the one who has loved us from the beginning and will love us to the end.

Let us pray. Loving God, you have been our dwelling place for generations. Dwell with us now as we seek courage, stability and hope in this pandemic. Remind us when we forget that you will never leave us. In the name of Jesus our Lord, we pray. Amen.

Faithfully,

Tim

“Turn to me and be saved, all the ends of the earth! For I am God, and there is no other. By myself I have sworn, from my mouth has gone forth in righteousness a word that shall not return: “To me every knee shall bow, every tongue shall swear.” Isaiah 45:22-23

Isaiah wrote at a time when the people of God were immersed in a pagan culture. There were all sorts of foreign gods all around and the people were constantly being distracted and tempted to “try another god.” So, the prophet warns, there is only one true God. The Apostle Paul wrote to the Philippian church that “at the name of Jesus, one day every knee will bow, and tongue confess that Jesus is Lord.” Paul also wrote to a church struggling in a pagan culture.

We need Isaiah, Paul, and modern-day prophets to remind us that there is only one God. Our culture is less overtly pagan, but we certainly face daily temptations to make other things our priorities. It is important to remember that the “lesser gods” of the culture—fame, wealth, prestige, pleasure, leisure only feed the desires of the flesh, not our souls. The satisfaction we receive from “lesser gods” is fleeting, and temporary. These gods leave us empty and searching for more. In a time of unprecedented world health crisis and extreme social unrest, it is important to know who the true God is. Only the creator of all that is, only the incarnate God whose son became human for us can understand our fears and give us strength and courage.

Let us pray. Lord God we bend the knee and proclaim our allegiance and love to you. Keep us from being distracted by all the temptations and false gods around us. Give us courage and hope in this pandemic. Bring an end to this ordeal. Heal the sick, care for the dying and comfort the grieving. Keep the medical workers and all of us safe from infection. In the name of Christ we pray. Amen.

Faithfully,

Tim
