God’s word for me today is in Zechariah 1:11 which says:
“11 And they reported to the angel of the Lord who was standing among the myrtle trees, “We have gone throughout the earth and found the whole world at rest and in peace.”
Wait a second, these myrtle tree’s are speaking? And not only that but their saying that the earth is at peace and rest? I don’t know about you, but these talking myrtle trees must be talking about some time in the future of something because as far as I know, the earth isn’t at peace and rest.
So how could the whole world be at peace and rest? Through Jesus, God’s son (and God Himself)! Jesus came down from heaven to bring peace and rest to the earth, and He did it because He loves us! Jesus came down to bring rest to people. Peace from what? From our sins! You see, we were all sinners. We were all going to die in our sins. But Jesus loved us enough to die on a cross and atone perfectly for us. He took our sins upon Him and died for us so that we could be saved!
So that is how we can have peace and rest, through Jesus Christ who died for us on the cross. Also, this is a vision that Zechariah has so anything can really happen, including talking myrtle trees.
Praise the Lord that we are saved!
