What a great God we have. He comforts those who inhabit Zion (poetic version of: those in Jerusalem as God’s chosen people who put their trust in Him. This also includes those who are born again at the foot of the cross [Christ’s crucifixion took place on Mount Moriah-see Lambert Dolphin’s Mount Moriah, site of the Temple Mount in Jerusalem @ templemount.org, 1996]. Christ followers are grafted in/adopted as Zion’s children.) I need His comfort daily. We can rejoice whenever we listen to the scripture sung in Handel’s Messiah (“comfort ye”). -Teresa #Heisgreat
Isaiah 12:1-6 (ESV)
You[a] will say in that day:
“I will give thanks to you, O Lord,
for though you were angry with me,
your anger turned away,
that you might comfort me.
“Behold, God is my salvation;
I will trust, and will not be afraid;
for the Lord God[b] is my strength and my song,
and he has become my salvation.”
3 With joy you[c] will draw water from the wells of salvation. 4 And you will say in that day:
“Give thanks to the Lord,
call upon his name,
make known his deeds among the peoples,
proclaim that his name is exalted.
“Sing praises to the Lord, for he has done gloriously;
let this be made known[d] in all the earth.
Shout, and sing for joy, O inhabitant of Zion,
for great in your[e] midst is the Holy One of Israel.”
