"Look! Striding across the mountains- a messenger bringing the latest good news: peace!A holiday, Judah! Celebrate! Worship and recommit to God!No more worries about this enemy. This one is history. Close the books."

1.When it seems like all is over. "look" A messenger is bringing your good news for you .
2.When you don't know what to do anymore ."look" He is sending someone to change your story for you . Amen. Isaiah 46:11 (NLT Version) "I will call a swift bird of prey from the east— a leader from a distant land to come and do my bidding.I have said what I would do, and I will do it."

Amen. psalm 40:2 (NLT Version )" He lifted me out of the pit of despair, 0ut of the mud and the mire.He set my feet on solid ground and steadied me as I walked along."
6. When you can no longer go further "look" God is about to give you your promotion , Amen. psalm 75:6,7 "For promotion cometh neither from the east, nor from the west, nor from the south. But God is the judge: he putteth down one, and setteth up another. "
