Devotional for Saturday, April 25
This devotional is as simple as it gets. Keep your eyes on the prize!
Isaiah 25:6-9 (NLT)
In Jerusalem, the Lord of Heaven’s Armies
will spread a wonderful feast
for all the people of the world.
It will be a delicious banquet
with clear, well-aged wine and choice meat.
There he will remove the cloud of gloom,
the shadow of death that hangs over the earth.
He will swallow up death forever!
The Sovereign Lord will wipe away all tears.
He will remove forever all insults and mockery
against his land and people.
The Lord has spoken!
In that day the people will proclaim,
“This is our God!
We trusted in him, and he saved us!
This is the Lord, in whom we trusted.
Let us rejoice in the salvation he brings!”
I don’t know what I can add to that, except a prayer.
Lord, we sometimes forget that you’ve promised a way out. Resurrection, and the full restoration of joy that comes with it, will be ours! You have spoken! May such visions sustain us until we feast together. Amen.
