From today’s Old Testament reading, from Isaiah: ‘It will be said on that day, “Lo, this is our God; we have waited for him, that he might save us. This is the Lord; we have waited for him; let us be glad and rejoice in his salvation.”’

The prayer of ‘waiting’ can be agonising, but God gives the grace to stand still in the midst of anxiety and trouble – even in the time of Covid.

God is there, working His purpose out, and it is for us to stand ready to accomplish His will, as it is shown to us – in this is our comfort and our joy.

May God bless you this day.
