Chapter-a-Day Isaiah 52

How beautiful on the mountains are the feet of the messenger bringing good news, Breaking the news that all's well, proclaiming good times, announcing salvation, telling Zion, "Your God reigns!" Isaiah 52:7 (MSG)

Children are sometimes overrun with fear and anxiety. I can remember both of my daughters, as little girls, becoming overwrought with intense feelings of angst. The mental picture of those puffy cheeks and red eyes are indelibly etched in my brain. Tears flowed like rain as they would become almost paralyzed by their feelings. In those moments I would stop what I was doing, wrap my arms around them and comfort them with the affirmation that everything was going to be alright. Daddy was there.

Even as adults we can encounter times of paralyzing anxiety. Like grown up children, we are stymied by intense, negative emotions. 

It is a worthwhile endeavor to encourage others with the news that our Heavenly Father is there. God is in control.

It's okay. Everything is going to be alright. Our God reigns.

One thought on “Chapter-a-Day Isaiah 52”

  1. God is leading you out of here,
    and the God of Israel is also your rear guard.
    Surrounded by God. What more could we want. The ultimate protection and peace of mind comes from giving life up to God.
