Jesus immediately reached out and grabbed him. “You have so little faith. Why did you doubt me?”
Lover: Have I ever let you down?
Lover: Do you remember a challenge I gave you that was fulfilled completely?
Beloved: Yes, many.
Lover: What big challenge are you wrestling with now?
Beloved: One that seems to be overwhelming me.
Lover: Did I give you a plan?
Lover: Isn’t that like telling Peter, “Yes, come?”
Lover: Indeed there are waves and strong winds, but your focus needs to stay on Me, not on them. As I told John, what I do with others is not your concern. You follow Me! Take courage. I am here.
17“The poor and homeless are desperate for water, their tongues parched and no water to be found. But I’m there to be found, I’m there for them, and I, God of Israel, will not leave them thirsty. 18I’ll open up rivers for them on the barren hills, spout fountains in the valleys. I’ll turn the baked-clay badlands into a cool pond, the waterless waste into splashing creeks. 19I’ll plant the red cedar in that treeless wasteland, also acacia, myrtle, and olive. I’ll place the cypress in the desert, with plenty of oaks and pines. 20Everyone will see this. No one can miss it— unavoidable, indisputable evidence that I, God, personally did this. It’s created and signed by The Holy of Israel.
(Isaiah 41:17-20, The Message)
