Psalm 97:1, Isaiah 52:7 NIV 2011

The Lord reigns, let the earth be glad, let the distant shores rejoice.

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 God reigns in majesty over all the earth from sea to shining sea. Psalm 93:1a, “The Lord reigns, he is robed in majesty.” Psalm 99b, “He sits enthroned between the cherubim, let the earth shake.” The psalter painted a picture of those who ran from town to town bringing good news to the people and their king. Those were the same feet of those who knew Jesus and shared the Good News. Romans 10:16, “And how can anyone preach unless they are sent.” God reigns in the lives of those who declare Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior.

After two surgeries on my left foot, I’ve never thought of my feet as beautiful. Stuffing my large feet into my older sister’s shoes so I could wear cute shoes could be part of the problem. Isaiah’s words about the feet of those that bring Good News have always been favorites of mine. In order to share God’s Word, we need to move and that involves our feet. My trusty tennis took me past a neighbor this morning in need of prayer. God does reign in my life daily.

Where’s God leading your feet today?

Thankful our God reigns,

S

  1. On a beautiful spring day like today I saw God’s generosity & extravagance! The trees were blossoming, the birds were singing, and the breeze from the West was whispering! Such a morning gift!! After walking, my feet took me to City Life for a bullying session with the 7th graders from Starling Middle school. So happy to be part of this exercise. Hope all is well with you!!
    Hugs, i

    1. Way to get moving and see God’s beauty in your walk. Great description of your walk with the Lord. I can smell and feel the breeze. All is well. I’ll be in church on Sunday. I’ll try to come a bit early to see you. We fly in Saturday and fly to Seattle Tuesday evening. Don’t want to wear out our welcome in New Albany. 😉 I’ll be back in July for VBS with Dean and Helen. Nicki and Brian aren’t sure what they will do for over a week without the two littles. See you Sunday!
