The Lord Be With You Today!

Isaiah 49:16a
See, I have engraved you on the Palms of My Hands;
(In the same way that grasping something tightly in our hand
will leave its
imprint in our palm,
the Lord so loves us, is so concerned for us,
that He holds us so tightly to His heart
that our imprint is on His very Hands.
The Lord grasps us so tightly that He leaves indentations
in the Palms of His Hands.
He doesn't just casually hold our hands,
He doesn't just casually throw His arm over our shoulder,
He doesn't just casually walk along beside us.
He marks our name indelibly in the very area of His greatest strength,
His Hand of power.
The phrasing here also refers to the human practice
of permanently engraving a name or picture onto the body.
The Lord has permanently engraved our name in the strength of His Hand
to keep us ever before Him, to forever remember us,
and to extend His Hand of power over us.)

May the Lord richly bless you this day!

In Christ's love,
