49 And look, I am sending you[a] what my Father promised. As for you, stay in the city[b] until you are empowered[c] from on high.” (Luke 24:49 CSB)
Scripture is peppered with many promises from God. The first of which is to send The Spirit to be both our guide and interpreter of the messages within scripture.
Leaning to live in and lean on these promises can make life a much more enjoyable journey. It does not mean that sky’s will always be fair, the road never rough nor the tempature always perfect. But it does mean that no matter what we can lean upon God’s promises for the outcome of our lives.
For those who have struggled with much this can seem a distant promise. But upon closer reflection we can often see God’s grace even in the difficulties in life.
Staying faithful can only be done by looking expectantly toward the God’s promises in scripture. There is much to mine within those sacred words.
