God is a God of Crazy Promises, and Incredible Dreams
God is a God of crazy promises and incredible dreams. That's quite an understatement! Ask Abraham, Moses, Daniel - any of the greats in the faith chapter of Hebrews. One of my favorites is Rahab - a Cananite prostitute, living in Jericho. Joshua sent out two spies to see what the Israelites were up against. The spies hid in Rahab's house, which was constructed into the city wall and she covered them under bunches of flax on the roof, protecting them from capture.
Rahab said to the spies: “I know that the LORD has given you this land and that a great fear of you has fallen on us. We have heard how the LORD dried up the water of the Red Sea for you when you came out of Egypt. When we heard of it, our hearts melted in fear and everyone’s courage failed because of you, for the LORD your God is God in heaven above and on the earth below. “Now then, please swear to me by the LORD that you will show kindness to my family, because I have shown kindness to you. Give me a sure sign that you will spare the lives of my father and mother, my brothers and sisters, and all who belong to them—and that you will save us from death.” Joshua 2 The spies told her to hang a scarlet rope from her window and they would save her family when they took the city.
That red cord saved her life - it was a forecast of the red blood of Jesus shed on the cross. The best part is that Rehab became part of the linage of Jesus! Matthew 1.
God does not care what you've done, what sins you've committed, what your past looks like. He sees you as He created you - a child of God. Your faith is what counts - it is what incredible dreams are made of. Crazy promises like "I will never leave you" and "My Mercy lasts eternally" - those are still for us today. Those promises are written in red.
Have a blessed day!
