“I will give peace in the land, and you shall lie down, and none shall make you afraid” (v6). God’s original intent for humanity was an abundant, secure life, and the Israelites were promised this kind of life if they would “walk in my statutes and observe my commandments” (v3). God promised that they would enjoy the results of their labor and not fear their enemies. A life of fellowship with God, obeying and serving Him, would lead to satisfaction, peace, and fruitfulness (v4-5).
“And I will walk among you and will be your God, and you shall be my people” (v12). We become part of God’s family by putting our trust in Jesus, and by following Him we find abundant life.
