A MESSAGE OF HOPE FOR TROUBLED TIMES!
Most of the year 2020 now lies behind us now, and for each of us, it has been a year filled with struggles, uncertainty, and loss. For many, this year has brought us to a feeling of hopelessness for the future. In the book of Isaiah the prophet, Chapter 52:7, we read these words:
"How beautiful on the mountains are the feet of the herald, who proclaims peace, who brings news of good things, who proclaims salvation, who says to Zion, "Your God reigns!"
In the time this was written, the only way to hear news, was for a runner to carry it, often over long distances. The people of that day wore sandal like shoes so their feet became very dusty when traveling over sometimes non- existent roads. It was customary to wash one's feet before speaking to those who were gathered to hear. This verse lets us know that even unwashed feet are beautiful when they carry good news. The message of this herald is a message of peace, a message of news of good things, a message of salvation. The herald also reminds us that "Our God still Reigns!"
This message to our community is a message of hope, despite what may be happening around us. Our God still reigns!!! His message is one of peace for our spirits, news of good things that are found only in His love and grace, and the message of salvation for those who will accept Him as their Savior and the Lord of their lives. Our redemption does not lie in government, social standing, our prosperity, or our circumstances here on earth! The good news is that Jesus has redeemed our circumstances if we accept His redemption and allow Him to lead our lives here on earth. Either, we will be led by our own decisions or we will be led by God's will for us. We have the choice. We can live a dark, depressed life here on earth, under our circumstances, or we can have an abundant life here on earth as we are led by an All Powerful Heavenly Father who will lead us to be over comers and eternity with God Himself. Take heart! Our God Still Reigns! "Now may the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit." (Romans 15:13)
