Proverbs 25:25 Like cold water to a weary soul is good news from a distant land.
The story of Israel is the story of biblical prophecy unfolding before our eyes. News from Israel is always more than news and hearing the latest updates and struggles for peace reminds us that God is still in control and that His plans are coming to fruition. Proverbs teaches us, “Like cold water to a weary soul is good news from a distant land.” In the Bible weariness is usually associated with a weakening of faith and courage. We get weary when the problems of the moment seem too overwhelming. It becomes easy to forget the big picture. We often lose sight of how God is at work in the darkest of times. News from Israel will refresh our faith, “like cold water to a weary soul.” The miraculous story of Israel reminds us that, no matter how long it takes, God keeps His promises.
