Psalm 126:1-3 “When the LORD turned again the captivity of Zion, we were like them that dream. Then was our mouth filled with laughter, and our tongue with singing: then said they among the heathen, The LORD hath done great things for them. The LORD hath done great things for us; whereof we are glad.”
Early in the morning of May 10th, 2018 three Americans stepped onto the tarmac at Joint Base Andrews to celebrate their freedom from brutal captivity in North Korea. They were met by the President and the Vice President, among others, and the freed prisoners gave Vice President Pence a small 3 x 5 notecard with Psalm 126:1-3 inscribed on the back. That Psalm celebrated the freedom of the Israelites from their captivity in Babylon, and the release of Israelites was a dream come true. Their mouths were filled with laughter and their tongues with singing. They praised the Lord for the great things He had done for them, and they were glad.
These freed Americans felt the same way upon their release from North Korea, and happily praised God as they shared their testimonies with our Vice President. He considered it a moment that he would never forget.
As our nation’s leaders meet in Singapore with the North Korean delegation this next week, may they remember that there are millions more who need to be freed from captivity. May these leaders also remember that they must rely upon the Lord Himself who is the One who can do truly great things for all of mankind. He can turn away captivity and make dreams come true. He can spread gladness that fills mouths with laughter and tongues with singing.
PLEASE PRAY FOR OUR NATION’S LEADERS AS THEY SHAPE THE STRATEGIC DIRECTION OF A WORLD IN BONDAGE. Through them this week, the Lord can do great things!
