Behold, a king will reign in righteousness, and princes will rule in justice. Each will be like a hiding place from the wind, a shelter from the storm, like streams of water in a dry place, like the shade of a great rock in a weary land.
A ruler who brings shelter, streams of water, and shade? This is not the picture we get when we look at worldly kingdoms.
But it is God’s reality. God’s picture of our future.
What refreshing verses to read this morning. What a beautiful picture of safety and security. I want to be in that place. I want to jump right in to those words and find myself surrounded by this utopia.
Are you with me?
This isn’t some far off wisp of a fleeting image. It’s for the here and now as we find ourselves wrapped up in King Jesus. Whatever your dry place, whatever your weary land, you can find peace. Now. Amidst the seen realities of this world, you can hope in the greater realities of the unseen.
