It was lovely to see you all this morning. Again, a wonderful time of prayer, songs and the encouragement of God’s word. Welcome back to Chris and well done for staying up to make the meeting…who needs sleep anyway!!
For those who couldn’t make it…we missed you! Here is a summary:
Through Isaiah we see a picture of God’s people (Judah) who are being hounded by Syria and Israel, not to mention the Assyrian colossus. They are oppressed, despondent, hopeless and broken. What they want is a leader who will be more ruthless and violent than their enemies who will wipe the opposition from the face of the earth. What they get is the promise of a baby boy who will become the Prince of Peace. This promise was the only solution to their problem then….and it is the only solution to our problems today.
Isaiah 55: 8 & 9
8 “My thoughts are nothing like your thoughts,” says the Lord.
“And my ways are far beyond anything you could imagine.
9 For just as the heavens are higher than the earth, so my ways are higher than your ways and my thoughts higher than your thoughts.”
God doesn’t always answer our prayers the way we expect Him to or when we think the time is right…but His timing is always perfect and His solutions always faultless. The more we get to know God and focus on Him the more we will be able to trust that His answers are…well…perfect!
We look forward to seeing you at the next meeting which will be on Friday 26th October, 7.30am at Limehouse.
Have a wonderful week.
