4 He will judge between the nations and will settle disputes for many peoples.
Nations of world with all their armies and resources looks very powerful in our eyes. And when nations go against each other to destroy each other how fearsome it is? Nuclear Bombs could destroy nations, technologies that could destroy the whole world.
But above all this; Lord is total control. Lord alone is the judge; one look from Him can settle every situation between the most fearsome enemies. Why are we worried and fearful when we face tough situation. Trust the Lord, He settles matter.
Ps 18:29 “With your help I can advance against a troop; with my God I can scale a wall.” David wrote this psalm after Lord delivered Him from Saul and all his enemies. David had no way to face the enemies as they were too strong for Him but every enemy was defeated.
They will beat their swords into plowshares and their spears into pruning hooks. Nation will not take up sword against nation, nor will they train for war anymore.
Nations will stop all their evil plans, when Lord raises and comes into the situation. Isa 54:17 “No weapon that is formed against you will prosper; And every tongue that accuses you in judgment you will condemn”
Weapons and scheme will stop. When people plan against you and speak evil of you do not worry. None of it will prosper. Heart of the king is in the hand of the Lord. Lord can change situation in a fraction of second. So just trust and wait for the Lord in Joy and thanksgiving.
5 Come, O house of Jacob, let us walk in the light of the LORD.
Let us decide to live holy. Dan 1:8 “But Daniel resolved not to defile himself ” It is good to confess our sins in brokenness but the best to go one more step a ahead, by surrendering to live holy. Let us never dilute our life by thinking if we are human we will sin. Look at it different perspective, this moment I will live Holy by His grace. Our life is always moments.
Heb 6:1-3 “.. let us press on to maturity ..And this we will do, if God permits.” So let us press on to Holy Life this moment and every moment. “..but now are ye light in the
Lord: walk as children of light:” (Ephesians 5:8)
