God’s encouragement for you

GOD_PROMISES

You shall be a glorious crown in the hand of the LORD,
a royal diadem held by your God.
No more shall people call you “Forsaken, “
or your land “Desolate, “
but you shall be called “My Delight, “

From the first reading from Iz 62:1-5:

For Zion’s sake I will not be silent, for Jerusalem’s sake I will not be quiet,
until her vindication shines forth like the dawn and her victory like a burning torch.

Nations shall behold your vindication,and all the kings your glory;
you shall be called by a new name pronounced by the mouth of the LORD.
You shall be a glorious crown in the hand of the LORD,
a royal diadem held by your God.
No more shall people call you “Forsaken, “
or your land “Desolate, “
but you shall be called “My Delight, “
and your land “Espoused.”
For the LORD delights in you
and makes your land his spouse.
As a young man marries a virgin,your Builder shall marry you;
and as a bridegroom rejoices in his bride so shall your God rejoice in you.
