Imagine the struggle and impatience of the Israelites in exile hundreds of years before the birth of the king. Imagine being told that your salvation is coming, but then having to wait fourteen generations for it to occur. Could you remain faithful? As you wait in exile, away from your home, and your comfort and the peace that comes with God being with us, does faith come easy?
This week as we delve into both Matthew and the book of Isaiah, walk with me through the comfort that comes knowing that God always keeps his promises. Even if it takes a very long time.
