Psalm 14:7 “Oh, that salvation for Israel would come out of Zion!”
[And it did come from Israel, from Judah, brought by Jesus, who was a Jew! This was written 1000 years before Jesus was born.]
“When the LORD restores the fortunes of his people, let Jacob rejoice and Israel be glad!”
[Yes, the first believers, who were all Jewish, as well as we gentiles who are your children, have rejoiced and will rejoice in our salvation!
And we can continue to rejoice in your ongoing practical protection and salvation, Lord Jesus, as you lead us out of our personal prisons, out of the sun scorched land, then further up and further into your glorious Kingdom. You are active in our lives on a daily basis, giving us frequent God sightings.
Truly, you are our Good Shepherd, Lord Jesus, active, caring and loving. With you we will not lack anything we need, as we follow you in the ups and downs of life. We need to choose each day to run the race that is set before us, looking to Jesus the author and finisher of our faith.]
