[QTVOTD] Be a watchman…

“How beautiful upon the mountains are the feet of him who brings good tidings, who publishes peace, who brings good tidings of good, who publishes salvation, who says to Zion, Your God reigns! Hark, your watchmen lift up their voices; together they sing for joy; for they shall see eye to eye the return of the Lord to Zion.” Isaiah 52:7-8 ->me: A single runner meant good news from the battle field – 2 Samuel 18:24-25. This news however is the glorious news of the end of God’s wrath – Redemption without cost: Peace with God. News of Salvation – divine victory over every binding foe, and the power of sin’s oppression broken. Isaiah envisages a day (still future for us too) when faith will pass into sight and when the Lord returns to Zion, they will see it with their own eyes. Right on the heels of the herald comes the Lord Himself. ‘Eye to eye’ in this instance does not mean ‘in agreement’ like we would interpret it; more like ‘with total clarity’. Am I doing my best to be a watchman; bringing the good news to those around me? I have an opportunity to bring these good tidings to people that are hurting and need the Lord. Today I must work harder to grasp the opportunities God sets before me and pray that He would bring more of those opportunities my way.
