Living Promises of God

Isaiah 58:9 “If you do away with the yoke of oppression, with the pointing finger and malicious talk,10 and if you spend yourselves in behalf of the hungry and satisfy the needs of the oppressed, then your light will rise in the darkness, and your night will become like the noonday. 11 The Lord will guide you always; he will satisfy your needs in a sun-scorched land and will strengthen your frame.
You will be like a well-watered garden, like a spring whose waters never fail.
12 Your people will rebuild the ancient ruins and will raise up the age-old foundations; you will be called Repairer of Broken Walls, Restorer of Streets with Dwellings.” Do you hear the promises of God that flow when you choose to be rebellious and love everyone, speaking words of kindness, helping the under-served, rebuilding lives of brokenness, and rejecting the world’s demands by accepting freedom in Christ? God promises: you will shine like the sun at midnight, you will feast in famine, you will replenish like a never-ending waterfall, and you will restore broken places and hearts! His life will flow freely and continuously through you! Awake! Live and love freely, child of God!
