Wednesday Wisdom

“Arise, Jerusalem! Let your light shine for all to see.
    For the glory of the Lord rises to shine on you.
Darkness as black as night covers all the nations of the earth,
    but the glory of the Lord rises and appears over you.
All nations will come to your light;
    mighty kings will come to see your radiance." Isaiah 60:1-3

God will transform His people’s (Christ-Followers’) destiny from the darkness as black as night caused by sin.

The transformation of all nations and might kings (presidents and world leaders) will be so radical that all kingdoms will take notice and be drawn to God through his people. (The nations will walk in its light, and the kings of the world will enter the city in all their glory. - Revelation 21:24)

In Isaiah, Zion is a theological name for Jerusalem, the city of God. Zion symbolizes God’s presence and protection for his people, their resilience and victory against enemies, and the resulting peace. Zion is a place of security, tranquility and rest. In essence Zion is wherever God and His people are. Zion proclaims the good news that God comes to redeem His people and bring them back to His presence.

Zion also has a moral dimension. Because the Lord is already present among His people, they must live according to His ways. Chief characteristics of the Lord’s city are trust, justice, righteousness, and commitment. The Lord does not tolerate impurity, idolatry, injustice, ore unrighteousness. 

God is in control of history (past, present & future) and He weaves together all our lives into His plan. Even is the wake of all the recent world events God is in control. And with that we can find peace!

Be blessed and be a blessing. Tell someone about the goodness of God.
