More Than Bread Devotional for 3/30/12

Hosea 6:1,3
Come, let us return to the LORD.For He has torn [us],and He will heal us; He has wounded [us], and He will bind up our wounds. Let us strive to know the LORD. His appearance is as sure as the dawn. He will come to us like the rain,like the spring showers that water the land.

I love so much of the imagery of Hosea. I guess because I am “prone to wander Lord, I feel it!” There is a line in verse 3 that just struck me today. God’s appearance is as sure as the dawn. How sure are you that the sun is going to come up tomorrow? Barring the rapture, or death… it’s going to happen. No bet-taker in the world would bet against the dawn. God’s showing up to step into our lives is just that certain. That is a huge statement. It takes faith to wait for the dawn when you are in the middle of a long dark night. But you can be assured that God will break into your situation at some point. Then… He will come to us like rain. He will come to us like that glorious spring shower that refreshes everything. He will do it. That isn’t Gina’s promise. That is God’s promise that His appearance is as certain as the dawn tomorrow morning.
Praise Him!
