The wolf will romp with the lamb,
the leopard sleep with the kid.
Calf and lion will eat from the same trough,
and a little child will tend them.
Cow and bear will graze the same pasture,
their calves and cubs grow up together,
and the lion eat straw like the ox.
The nursing child will crawl over rattlesnake dens,
the toddler stick his hand down the hole of a serpent.
Neither animal nor human will hurt or kill
on my holy mountain.
The whole earth will be brimming with knowing God-Alive,
a living knowledge of God ocean-deep, ocean-wide.
Imagining a peaceable world that God is preparing for us is incredibly comforting in a time where terror runs rampant. I for one can't wait to swim in an ocean without the fear of sharks. LOL. The fear and darkness that exists in our world today is a direct result of a lack of knowledge of God, but one day a world will exist where the knowledge of God will be ocean deep and wide. The serenity that will exist is almost incomprehensible. No more political bashing, no more terror threat, no more irritating co workers or frustrating family members. Sounds like a perfect world doesn't it? And the fact that God is creating it for us because he loves us is proof that he cares and desires to build a perfect world for us. Not only is this reality comforting but the fact that he sent his son because he loves us and was obsessed with imperfect people who would do bad things is amazing! He came to heal restore and bring life to a hurting world to bad people because he loves us that much. Let's revel in his amazing love today.
