The Lord Be With You Today!

Isaiah 49:26a
"I will make your oppressors eat their own flesh;
(Even when His people bring on their own captivity through disobedience,
the Lord does not allow their oppression to last forever

nor their enemy to keep winning forever.
In fact, the enemy of His people will eventually be filled
with so much inner turmoil and heaviness
that he will eventually turn on his own cohorts,
in effect, consuming themselves and each other
in their frenzy to carry out their evil plans.
God promises us here that He will free us from whatever enemy we face today
because He will cause that force to turn inward on itself.
Evil will always be destroyed as it turns inward on itself.
It cannot remain our captor, not only because God refuses to allow its supremacy,
but also because of its own inherent self-destructive nature.
Evil will never win and always destroys itself.)
they will be drunk on their own blood, as with wine.
(The wine described here is the "must,"
the juice that naturally spills from the weight of the heaped up grapes
even before they are subjected to the wine press,
Intoxication from this sweet juice not yet heavily fermented
would require large amounts of such must,
showing that the invasion, even the "must," of the enemy forces
would result in such great amounts of shed blood
that the effect would be devastating.
The wine of their destruction will consume the enemy
making them drunk with the sheer amount of the warfare and fighting
that communicates to them the sureness of victory.
This promise of the Lord assures us that even though the fighting may be fierce,
even though the challenges in our lives may seem overwhelming,
the enemy is merely drinking from the wine
of the seeming abundance of the entrapment
and the resulting delusion of victory.
The Lord describes for us here
the defeated outcome of the enemy situations facing us today!)

May the Lord richly bless you this day!

In Christ's love,
