The Story of God: Trust

Isaiah 36:1-3, 13-20; 37:1-7; 2:1-4, NRSV
Matthew 5:14, NRSV


To escape the distress caused by regret for the past or fear about the future, this is the rule to follow: leave the past to the infinite mercy of God, the future to his good providence; give the present wholly to his love by being faithful to his grace.

— Jean-Pierre de Caussade,

  • Dire situation in the story from Isaiah
  • The lie “God cannot save us”
  • What voices
  • With many voices and lies, we forget who we are
  • We are image of God
  • Isaiah answered with vision
  • Even when our dreams/vision die, can we trust God’s vision?
  • Forgiveness is just part of healing
  • Gods sends prophets or other Christ followers to us, to let us know God’s vision and dream
  • Chuck DeGroat: Stop defining yourself by your stumbling, and start defining yourself by your deepest identity. God paid an awfully big price to make his welcome crystal clear for you…now receive it.
