The Lord Be With You Today!
"They will neither hunger nor thirst,
nor will the desert heat or the sun beat down on them.
(The Lord has declared He will set His people free from their exile in Babylon,
and He promises He will provide for them, that they will not lack
even though the journey will take them through difficult
and, at times, desolate and unknown territory.
He will protect them from outside forces
so that even in the scorching heat of the desert He will shield them.
Today, He promises us He will be our provision in everything we need
and our shield against the fierce heat of the desert places in our lives,
places that are unfamiliar and uncharted,
places of desolation and desperation.)
He Who has compassion on them will guide them
and lead them beside springs of water."
(The Lord's kindness and care for us never falters
even though our disobedience and rebellion
have taken us into exile and away from Him.
His faithful compassion remains to lead us back to Him.
Not only will the Lord provide sustenance and protection for us
in our return journey to Him,
but He will guide and direct us through the unfamiliar and unknown places,
uncharted places of desolation and desperation.
As He frees us from our places of captivity,
He always guides us to new places of restoration and renewal,
places of rest beside streams of the living water that come from Him,
hidden streams about which only He knows
and to which He leads us even as we journey through the desert today.)
May the Lord richly bless you this day!
In Christ's love,
