And being in an agony he prayed more earnestly: and his sweat was as it were great drops of blood falling down to the ground. – Luke 22:44 KJV

I’m a little behind on blogging, but to still be doing it at all is progress. My mind is so distracted with other things and other people. As I was giving God my time first this morning, Luke 22:44 grasped my heart. I remembered the word agony in this verse being pointed out in a bible study once. I had read it before but for some reason I had allowed myself to forget that Jesus did not suffer (allow) His pain heroically like we like to preach and teach. It was heroic to do what He was doing, but the whole purpose of it was to suffer “as we do”… to show us He is not “above” feeling pain like we…

Philippians 2:14-16

“Do all things without murmurings and disputings:
that ye may be blameless and harmless,
the sons of God,
without rebuke,
in the midst of a crooked and perverse nation,
among whom ye shine as lights in the world;
holding forth the word of life;
that I may rejoice in the day of Christ,
that I have not run in vain,
neither laboured in vain.”
– Philippians 2:14-16 AKJV

Isaiah 61:10

“I will greatly rejoice in the Lord,
my soul shall be joyful in my God;
for he hath clothed me
with the garments of salvation,
he hath covered me
with the robe of righteousness,
as a bridegroom decketh himself
with ornaments,
and as a bride adorneth herself
with her jewels.”
– Isaiah 61:10 KJV

Good Tidings

“How beautiful upon the mountains are the feet of him that bringeth good tidings, that publisheth peace; that bringeth good tidings of good, that publisheth salvation; that saith unto Zion, Thy God reigneth! Thy watchmen shall lift up the voice; with the voice together shall they sing: for they shall see eye to eye, when the Lord shall bring again Zion.
Break forth into joy, sing together, ye waste places of Jerusalem: for the Lord hath comforted his people, he hath redeemed Jerusalem. The Lord hath made bare his holy arm in the eyes of all the nations; and all the ends of the earth shall see the salvation of our God.
– Isaiah 52:7-10 KJV

Lord, here You again are encouraging me to keep writing. Your children need good tidings. They need Your comfort. They need to know You reigneth. They need to know You know their hurt,  and that You care about each one. They long for Your peace. I long for Your peace. Peace can only be found in You. A peace that passes all understanding, even mine.  How blessed I am that I don’t have to understand.

Here You are, my Watchman, assuring me we will lift my voice together with Your children and sing! We need to break forth in joy. We want to break forth in joy. You are our joy. I love You, Lord! ❤

“The wolf also shall dwell with the lamb,
and the leopard shall lie down with the kid;
and the calf and the young lion and the fatling together;
and a little child shall lead them.
And the cow and the bear shall feed;
their young ones shall lie down together:
and the lion shall eat straw like the ox.
And the sucking child shall play on the hole of the asp,
and the weaned child shall put his hand on the cockatrice’ den.
They shall not hurt nor destroy in all my holy mountain:
for the earth shall be full of the knowledge of the Lord,
as the waters cover the sea.
And in that day there shall be a root of Jesse,
which shall stand for an ensign of the people;
to it shall the Gentiles seek:
and his rest shall be glorious.”
– Isaiah 11:6-10 KJV

What a glorious world to look forward to, Lord.  Your coming kingdom would make a lot of sense with animals being good and living peacefully. Maybe on the new earth? You are the One who had this written in Your word… for us to know and think on… to find peace in it. And how absolutely jaw dropping for the whole earth to be full of the knowledge of You! As the waters cover the sea! 🙂 Only You could give glorious rest! ❤ Perfect peace! ❤
