The Mission to the World Day 7 of 20
Are we trusting in God to do the things for us he has promised? What is interesting in these verses is that the work is all the Lord’s: “I will provide…I will plant…I will also give you rest…The Lord himself will establish a house for you”. This latter promise founds a new covenant – one with the house of David - that will find its ultimate fulfilment in the coming of Jesus Christ, something that takes place about 1,000 years after God spoke these words. May we trust in God’s promises – and his power to fulfil them – today.
