Many times the people of Israel disobeyed God, forgetting His laws and His commandments, going behind other “gods” and forgetting all the great things that God had done for His people, but God never forgot them, He was always behind them so that they would repent of their evil, and in the same way it happens with us, God is always looking for a way to introduce us to the path, since He does not want anyone to be lost but to proceed to repentance that is in Christ Jesus our beloved Sir.
The Bible tells us:
7 How beautiful on the mountains
are the feet of those who bring good news,
who proclaim peace,
who bring good tidings,
who proclaim salvation,
who say to Zion,
“Your God reigns!”
8 Listen! Your watchmen lift up their voices;
together they shout for joy.
When the Lord returns to Zion,
they will see it with their own eyes.
9 Burst into songs of joy together,
you ruins of Jerusalem,
for the Lord has comforted his people,
he has redeemed Jerusalem.
The words of the prophet Isaiah were not always hard for the people of Israel, but God also gave them words of encouragement and motivation to understand the wonderful plans of God. The Lord also corrects us as a father corrects his children so that they stay on the right path.
Without a doubt, these were good news for the people of Israel, knowing that one day they would return from captivity, and that God would gather them even from the ends of the earth to be a people again. What better time than this to hear these words? We ourselves often go through a spiritual captivity, through a desert, and we fail to understand God’s plans, and that is precisely why we must shelter in His promises, those promises that God has given us through His Word.
May God help us to always sing joyfully before Him and to give Him glory in any situation of our lives. The saint of Israel is with us!
