Today’s Verse: Isaiah 52:7 How lovely on the mountains are the feet of him who brings good news, who announces peace and brings good news of happiness, who announces salvation, and says to Zion, “Your God reigns!” NASB
This one is for all my dear brothers and sisters that are evangelists and missionaries all over the world. When I was working in a big defense manufacturing facility, one of the things they reminded us of constantly as managers was too look down and see if you were standing on carpet or concrete. You see, all the real value-added work was taking place on the concrete. If we found ourselves standing on the carpet too much, well, we were not where we needed to be to in order to be involved with the part of the process that was what we existed for as an organization. Of course it was necessary to be on the carpet occasionally to attend status meetings and for training, but the real action took place on the concrete. Our offices and church buildings are great places to meet and to encourage each other and to get more training in God’s word. However, the real work that we are called to is outside in the world. The mountains in today’s verse are the nations. Those who are out there today and everyday spreading the Good News of salvation and peace across this world are on the concrete of God’s workplace. Thank God for your faithfulness. May it be an example to those of us who too often look down and find ourselves on carpet. May you look down today and find that you have lovely feet set at sharing the good news that “Our God Reigns!”
May God bless your heart as you seek His.
