2 But in that day, the branch of the Lord will be beautiful and glorious; the fruit of the land will be the pride and glory of all who survive in Israel. 3 All who remain in Zion will be a holy people— those who survive the destruction of Jerusalem and are recorded among the living. 4 The Lord will wash the filth from beautiful Zion and cleanse Jerusalem of its bloodstains with the hot breath of fiery judgment. 5 Then the Lord will provide shade for Mount Zion and all who assemble there. He will provide a canopy of cloud during the day and smoke and flaming fire at night, covering the glorious land. 6 It will be a shelter from daytime heat and a hiding place from storms and rain.Quick Notes
God is the one who washes away the filth that we create. If we stay true to God, we will survive and again we will be provided for. I think we get scared of doing things differently because of the future. Few of us have problems changing things that we feel are unimportant, but when we consider something important, we do not want to change... even if it would be better for us.
Do we really believe that staying true to God is important, and if so, are we willing to do it?
Almighty God, I want to believe the future will be better off if the world relies on you. Help me to be a part of that. Amen.
