The Lord Be With You Today!

Isaiah 51:22b-23
“See, I have taken out of your hand the cup that made you stagger;
from that cup, the goblet of My wrath, you will never drink again.
(The Lord declares to His people that He is their Deliverer.
Not only will He remove them from the consequences of their sin,
He tells His people that He will not allow them
to suffer that kind of exile again.
Today He offers that same promise to us,
to remove cup of our disobedience and inadequacy
and to deliver us from the places of exile in which we have suffered
so that we do not experiences those places again.)

I will put it into the hands of your tormentors, who said to you,
‘Fall prostrate that we may walk on you.’
And you made your back like the ground, like a street to be walked on.”
(The Lord will take the very cup of suffering
from which we have been drinking
and put it into the hands of those who have oppressed His people,
turning back on themselves the very things
they have done to God's chosen ones
and causing them to reap what they have sown.
He will pour out the cup of His wrath on the enemy of His people,
making true His promise that any attack on His people is an attack on Him.
Since He our God is undefeated and indomitable, completely undefeatable,
He will cause us who have been brought low, walked on, passed over,
and tormented by oppression to be raised and delivered by His Hand.)

May the Lord richly bless you this day!

In Christ's love,
