Can you imagine the banquet which God is preparing for us? A banquet with no veil, no death, no tears, no shame. Would you like to taste of it already? This passage will aid us in our waiting for the One who has come to save us, the One who is doing this!
Isaiah 25:6-10a NCV
The Lord All-Powerful will prepare a feast
on this mountain for all people.
It will be a feast with all the best food and wine,
the finest meat and wine.
On this mountain God will destroy
the veil that covers all nations,
the veil that stretches over all peoples;
he will destroy death forever.
The Lord God will wipe away every tear from every face.
He will take away the shame of his people from the earth.
The Lord has spoken.
At that time people will say,
“Our God is doing this!
We have waited for him, and he has come to save us.
This is the Lord. We waited for him,
so we will rejoice and be happy when he saves us.”
The Lord will protect Jerusalem,
For Your Reflection and Prayer:
What word or phrase did you hear as you listened to the text?
Can you imagine the feast God is preparing for you? Us?
What shame do you specifically desire God to take away from you? From another? Have a conversation with Jesus about it.
What helps you wait for the Lord? How do you experience the Lord's presence in your waiting?
