The Lord Be With You Today!

Isaiah 49:8a
This is what the Lord says:
“In the time of My favor I will answer You,

The phrase time of favor refers to a season of delight,
a time of great joy when the Lord will finally reveal the glory
of the salvation He has planned through His Son.
As Father God speaks lovingly and reassuringly to His Son here in Isaiah,
He tells Jesus that He will answer Jesus' needs
as God leads Him to fulfill the mission the Lord has set before Him.
God will not only answer His Son,
He will not only be attentive to Jesus' needs
as He embarks upon the mission God has laid out for Him,
but the Lord will delight in this season
when He will sustain and strengthen and guide Jesus
to complete His God assignment.
The Lord's time of delight in and favor for us is just as real as it is for Jesus.
After all, the very reason God sent Jesus to earth
was to reconcile us to Himself.
Today is the very season when God delights in us
as He leads us into the assignments He has set for each of us.)

and in the day of salvation I will help You;"

(God already knows the deep suffering, the deep commitment, required
for Jesus to maintain and complete His journey to and through the cross,
and His promise is that He will provide everything Jesus needs
to accomplish God's mighty plan of salvation.
The Lord already knows the challenges we will face
in what He has called each of us to walk to and through today,
and He declares not only His delight in our walk with Him through these places,
but also vows His complete provision and support for all we need.)

May the Lord richly bless you this day!

In Christ's love,
