Beautiful Feet

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!” – (Isaiah 52:7)

 

God calls the feet of those who bring His good news to others, beautiful. Daily, we have opportunities to proclaim peace on His behalf. As we bear good tidings before others, doors open for us to share the hope of salvation with those who do not yet know their own need for Christ. The Lord reigns, whether individuals recognize Him for who He is or not. It is our charge, as His children, to be the hearts and hands that reach out to those who do not yet know Him. May we each find footing on the path that delivers good news, and come to know His pleasure in our pursuit of proclaiming truth.

 

How beautiful,

upon mountain tops;Beautiful Feet

are feet of those,

who choose not to stop.

Ever moving,

proclaiming His peace;

sharing His good,

pointing to release.

Good tidings brought,

through our God who reigns;

freedom is found,

as truth is proclaimed.

 

Dear Heavenly Father, thank You that we have the privilege to be instruments of Your peace as we go forth as Your representatives into the world. Thank You that You do not expect us all to be great orators or preachers, as You utilize us as You have created us. Thank You that You consider it a thing of beauty, any time that we step out in faith to share our faith in love. Forgive us for our fearfulness, and grant us a boldness before all whom we encounter. Teach us to trust You for the words and the opportunities, and help us to live and love in such a way, that people cannot help but wonder why we do what we do. May many who do not yet know You, come to know You as their Savior and King. Be glorified as we go forth proclaiming peace and share the good news of who You are. Amen.
