PROMISE OF DELIVERY
Tucked away in the book
of Isaiah is a verse that I discovered years ago. It uses the analogy of birth
for the promised new life for Israel. It also speaks to whatever pain we face.
After months of pregnancy a woman discovers the intense pain of delivery, and at
the moment when her pain is the greatest, there is release. What is the result?
A new birth and a new life. Joy is the result. The months of discomfort, and the
intense pain of delivery have been worth it. All along the way, she has
anticipated the joy to come. She has believed in her promise, and the months of
preparation have been worth the incredible result.
