Present and Future

[Isaiah] is saying to us, “Relocate your happiness in the future, in a world that doesn’t exist yet except in the promise of God. If you do that, you won’t be devastated when the idols of human pride are trashed, as they will be. In God you can possess both the present and the future.”

— Raymond C. Ortlund, Jr., Isaiah: God Saves Sinners, 49.
