“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 NIV Bible
Beautiful feet, I can honesty say I have never looked at mine and declared that.
You see in the flesh, they are wide and my toes are a tad on the stubby side; and when placed along side friends for a photo after my first pedicure they quite resemble Fred Flintstone’s feet AKA twinkle toes. Perfectly capable of pounding the dusty road with Barney Rubble after they lifted their prehistoric vehicle on route to Mr. Slate’s rock quarry.
But God’s word is talking about feet that travel to share good news. Dusty, grimy feet that ran to declare captivity is over, that freedom is on its way.
Those formally offensive and disgraceful feet become messengers of hope, peace, and the promise of a new beginning. That is my hope and prayer for you today, that somehow these soiled-chubby feet will aid in declaring God’s good news to you, proclaiming His peace in every one of your challenging situations.Your heart swelling with joy at the good tidings God has for you. His love touching every hurt, fear, and heartbreak. “Your God reigns”, and that truth deserves a hallelujah and If I might a yabba-dabba doo!
