The Lord Be With You Today!

Isaiah 49:22
This is what the Sovereign Lord says:
See, I will beckon to the nations,
I will lift up My banner to the peoples;
they will bring your sons in their arms

and carry your daughters on their hips.

(Jerusalem is desolated and without hope, its people in exile,
but the Lord has declared from long past that He will extend to the world
the same salvation He provided to the Jews.
He will cause the seeming barrenness of His people
to be changed into the joy of bearing fruit,
and Jerusalem will be filled with offspring.
Today, this prophecy is being fulfilled.
Jews are pouring forth from the nations of the world and returning to Israel,
and we Gentiles have been adopted into God's Own family.
We are the sons and daughters that He will bring alongside His people,
proclaiming all of us as belonging to the same family as brothers and sisters in Christ.
When we begin to think we will never bear fruit because of our inadequacies,
when we say that our barrenness is beyond God's repair,
we deny His promise and make His Word of no effect in our lives.
day, the Lord promises us that we will bear fruit, that our progeny will be many,
that the situations in our lives that seem barren and hopeless
will bring forth the fruit of His redemption and salvation.
He will lift up His banner of victory over us and all that concerns us.)

May the Lord richly bless you this day!

In Christ's love,
