Our God Reigns
"And now what do I have here?" declares the Lord...
"All day long My name is constantly blasphemed.
Therefore My people will know My name; therefore in that day they will know that it is I who foretold it. Yes, it is I."
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!"
The Lord will lay bare His holy arm in the sight of all the nations, and all the ends of the earth will see the salvation of our God.
But you will not leave in haste or go in flight; for the Lord will go before you, the God of Israel will be your rear guard.
See, My servant will act wisely; He will be raised and lifted up and highly exalted.
Just as there were many who were appalled at Him - His appearance was so disfigured beyond that of any human being and His form marred beyond human likeness - so He will sprinkle many nations, and kings will shut their mouths because of Him.
For what they were not told, they will see,
and what they have not heard, they will understand.*
Praise God, O readers, for our God reigns and no matter what happens He is our Savior.
* Isaiah 52:5-6, 10 and 12, 13 to 15
