Encouragement from Isaiah 52!
I heard the Lord say:
Wake up! Wake up!
Put on your strength!
Put on your beautiful garments!
Put on Christ!
Put on the armor of God!
Put on the armor of Light!
Shake the dust off yourself!
Take your seat!
Remove the bonds from your neck, captive!
You have been set free!
My people know my name.
My people know what my name is and what it means.
Look! I AM!
No one, no body, no other God is!
How beautiful upon the mountains are the feet of him that:
Brings good news.
Good tidings of good
Says our God reigns.
He chose us to do His kingdom work.
Are you watching?
The watchmen lift up the voice!
Together with one voice shall they sing.
They shall see eye to eye.
Break forth into joy.
The LORD comforts His people.
He has redeemed you.
You are paid for with the precious blood of Jesus.
You cannot do anything to make him love you more than he already does.
You cannot earn his salvation.
You cannot be good enough.
Jesus alone redeemed you.
The LORD has made bare his holy arm.
He has revealed Himself as the One by whose direction you are set free!
The ends of the earth will see the salvation of our God.
Leave! Leave the land of exile, isolation and desolation.
Be restored, renewed, rebuilt!
You are a vessel of the LORD meant for good works.
The LORD will go before you.
The God of Israel will be your rear guard, behind you.
The Holy Spirit will come beside you.
He will hold your right hand.
He will help you!
He is I AM!
He is God.
I enCOURAGE with the word of the Lord who loves you from the top of your head to the bottom of your feet. I see nothing beautiful in feet, but he does. Can you allow yourself to imagine what he thinks about the rest of your body, soul, and spirit, if he thinks your feet are beautiful? You are Creation! You are His Masterpiece You are His favored child. You were formed in His secret place and intricately and curiously wrought, as if embroidered with various colors.
How beautiful are thy feet with shoes, O queenly maiden! the joints of thy thighs [are] like jewels, the work of the hands of a Master workman. (Song of Songs 7:1 KJV)
