Has someone ever made you a promise? They often will disappoint you and not keep that promise. God is one who always does what He says. Read today’s Instaration Devo and be encouraged to remember the promises of God.

We get to determine that, though tragedy struck, we will not allow that to consume the joy and wonder of God’s presence. We get to decide that the horror and fears of today don’t get to overwhelm the clear knowledge of God’s sovereignty.
As I watch and pray, it is easy to stay faithful waiting for the new season as I see glimpses of what’s to come. As God feeds me encouragement that He is preparing the new thing, I can with confidence wait on Him. What if that encouragement is missing? What if I am left to trust with no sign of the promise?
I wait on JESUS.
My waiting is not in vain. Jesus is my salvation, my hope, my rock. Jesus has promised provision. Jesus has promised healing. Jesus has promised a future. Jesus is my everything. But what it truly means to wait on Jesus is to “wait on” Jesus. My service during my patient days is devoted to Him, his glory, his name being spread throughout the land, his testimony of grace in my life being shared, his people being loved… I don’t just wait as though waiting for rain in a drought. I wait as one who plants, tills, fertilizes, waters, protects, and expects the fruit that is promised. I wait on Jesus.
