How beautiful upon the mountains Are the feet of him who brings good news, Who proclaims peace, Who brings glad tidings of good things, Who proclaims salvation, Who says to Zion, “Your God reigns!” (Isaiah 52:7 NKJV)
I absolutely love how this scripture uses the feet as the first object and main object at that. But why?
One could read this scripture and think it’s talking about what you speak, what you proclaim, etc. When really, it’s what you do—your feet that should be doing the talking.
“How beautiful upon the mountains are the feet of him who brings good news…”
And why the mountain? Oh I love the mountain here! The beautiful feet who declare and proclaim salvation are the feet that have done some climbing. It took those piggly wigglies some work, some rough days to get to the place of being able to show and declare what The Lord has done.
How are your feet talking these days? Would they be considered beautiful?
I have the incredible privilege of serving with some beautiful feet around me 🙂 When others might think it’s what comes out of their mouth, their social status or anything else that could depict who and what they are that means the most, it’s really what they do that’s been speaking volumes to me AND of course, to The Lord. They are people who don’t always get seen; in fact, they may be the very people who get criticized the most sometimes…but they have some of the most beautiful feet I’ve ever seen. If you’re like them, keep going. You’re beautiful. You’re blessed. And your fruit will speak for itself 🙂
And if you’ve got some ranky feet, I challenge you to literally take a step back and ask The Lord what you can do, what mountain to climb, what area to serve in, who to love on—unconditionally. And when you start walking in that, in your purpose, oh how beautiful your feet will start to look.
