Living by Faith

23 10 2010

Recently preparing the prayer guide for Kelley Point Park, I knew it wasn’t finished, but I had to send it off to our music person so she could get the music ready, that was Monday and four days later during my quiet time, God gave me the rest.


          So often in life we don’t have all the information, so what do we do? Do we rest and rejoice in what God has given so far and believe in His timing, knowing He will give us the rest? We must do this, because if we can not rejoice in what God has given and walk in faith; our belief in a loving God is just an empty promise.  God wants us no matter what, to live and walk by faith.


            I was walking by faith and waiting for God, to reveal His plans and purposes for Kelley Point Park. I knew we lacked God promise for Portland and as I awoke the morning of our journey, it came, Isaiah 45:5-8.


“I am the LORD, and there is no other; apart from me there is no God. I will strengthen you, though you have not acknowledged me, so that from the rising of the sun to the place of its setting men may know there is none besides me. I am the LORD, and there is no other. I form the light and create darkness, I bring prosperity and create disaster; I, the LORD, do all these things. You heavens above, rain down righteousness; let the clouds shower it down. Let the earth open wide, let salvation spring up, let righteousness grow with it; I, the LORD, have created it.”


            If you know anything about Portland, Oregon you know this promise of righteousness and salvation is our deepest need, for we are a city which doesn’t want to acknowledge God in any way, shape, or form. I rejoice that God knows our city and yet He still cares for us, and id willing to reveal His glory even if my city is kicking and screaming!


            What a gift this scripture is and what a promise of hope for those of us interceding for a broken city.
