The Lord will wash away the filth of the women of Zion; he will cleanse the bloodstains from Jerusalem by a spirit of judgment and a spirit of fire.

Isaiah 4:4

Meditation

God’s judgements are about setting the wrong things right. Here the Spirit will wash away the bloodstains and the suffering, and will judge violence as “wrong”. Where has wrong occurred  in your life – whether wrongs you have done, or wrongs others have done to you? Has the Spirit washed away these bloodstains?
