say to those with fearful hearts,
“Be strong, do not fear;
your God will come,
he will come with vengeance;
with divine retribution
he will come to save you.”
This prophetic word has become a song which has brought comfort to many people including me! However, a closer look tells us that this word is a word of instruction that we should be mindful of the people in our lives, especially those who are fearful, weary including the ones who have “shaky knees”. Say to them, “Be strong. Do not fear. He will come to save you” What a joy and privilege it is that our God would choose us to bring this good news. Like ambassadors from another kingdom we come to bring hope to our fellow citizens living in a foreign land, “The Prince of Peace, Mighty God and Everlasting Father is coming for you!”
