"Let me hear what God the Lord will speak, for he will speak peace to his people, to his saints; but let them not turn back to folly. Surely his salvation is near to those who fear him, that glory may dwell in our land.
Steadfast love and faithfulness meet; righteousness and peace kiss each other. Faithfulness springs up from the ground, and righteousness looks down from the sky. Yes, the Lord will give what is good, and our land will yield its increase. Righteousness will go before him and make his footsteps a way."
"With such a beautiful promise of God's goodness, it's a wonder that we would even be tempted to return to our folly, as this passage calls it, to our sin and foolish living. But we will and we do. Which is precisely why we need Immanuel in the manger and on the cross." ~Kris Camealy, Come, Lord Jesus p29.
