Advent begins with a cry of brutal honesty. Isaiah 64 speaks to the ache of a people who’ve known God more as a rumor than a reality. They know the truth about Him, but they’ve failed to live it themselves. As a result, God feels a million miles away. What do we do when we feel far from God? Isaiah 64 reminds us that it’s the character of God – not the condition of our faith – that is our foundation. (Isaiah 64:1-7)
