Advent Psalms – Wednesday of Week Three

Let me hear what God the Lord will speak, for he will speak peace to his people, to his faithful, to those who turn to him in their hearts.
Surely his salvation is at hand for those who fear him, that his glory may dwell in our land.
Steadfast love and faithfulness will meet; righteousness and peace will kiss each other.
Faithfulness will spring up from the ground, and righteousness will look down from the sky.
The Lord will give what is good, and our land will yield its increase.
Righteousness will go before him, and will make a path for his steps.

Psalm 85:8-13

I like John’s name on this icon.  I have never associated him with this psalm before but reading it through this time this icon sprung into mind.  Some may wish to take issue that John message was one of peace, but I would say his message heralded peace, the King of Peace. He constantly spoke on the one to come after, that he was the one who should be listened to, he was the one who would bring Salvation, he was the one who was righteous.
