Joy to the world

RE Verse reading–Isaiah 10:5-27, 11:1-10 (day five)  “The wolf will live with the lamb. . .for the earth will be full of the knowledge of the Lord as the waters cover the sea.” (vs6,9)  No one should ever say that we have small dreams.  We should never be unclear about this.  We dream of a restored, healed world.  We pray for the Kingdom to come!  We believe it will. We pray for the earth to be full of the knowledge of the Lord (the word means a knowledge that is like intimacy).  We hope for the end of violence in all its forms.  Maybe Isaiah was using symbolism.  Maybe he was describing a change so revolutionary that it literally affects the animal kingdom.  Either way, none of us are fully developed followers until we embrace a dream bigger than our own personal safety and success.  Our prayer is for joy that comes to the whole world.  Read Isaiah 49:6.  Love to you all.
