The Lord Be With You Today!

Isaiah 49:16b
. . .your walls are ever before Me.

(The timing of the Lord's reminder to us
that He is truly deeply mindful of His beloved one
is when God's people are still in exile;
when, because of their rebellion and disobedience,
their homeland is under an enemy's rule;
when the walls of Jerusalem are broken down and have been breached by the enemy.
For us today, though we have rebelled and been disobedient,
though we have given over to the world the rule of our lives,
though the walls of our lives are broken and in disarray,
the Lord is reminding us that no situation is too difficult
nor too steeped in failure for Him.
In fact, we are ever before His view,
and those are the very times when the Lord is most present
and most in remembrance of us and of our needs.
The boundaries and conditions and circumstances of our life
are always within His view.
He never looks away from us, never leaves us
or forsakes us or lets us down or leaves us without support.
He is always intimately present in our life!)

May the Lord richly bless you this day!

In Christ's love,
