The Lord Be With You Today!

Isaiah 49:7b
“Kings will see You and stand up, princes will see and bow down,
because of the Lord, Who is faithful, the Holy One of Israel,
Who has chosen You.”

(Though Jesus was despised and rejected
by the very people to whom God had sent Him,
though they considered Him an actual abomination,
God has declared that those responses will not be the last word.
Jesus' mission failure was only temporary and did not detract
from Him and His faithful obedience and submissive service.
God proclaims that Christ the Messiah will be honored
by all the kings of the earth, by all the mighty.
They will honor and acknowledge Him as Lord
because the Great I AM has declared it so.
The powerful of the earth will rise in honor and recognition of Jesus as Christ,
only to bend their knee and prostrate themselves before Him.
God's sovereign purposes will prevail and do not depend
on the wavering, misguided, and blinded opinions of man.
Today, the Lord has also chosen us and declared
that even when situations to which He has called us
result in rejection and seeming failure, He, the Eternal God Almighty,
will cause us to be honored and our name restored in His due time
because He is faithful to His called and chosen
and because He looks on our obedience and submission to His service,
not on the success or failure of our mission–that is entirely in His Hands.)

May the Lord richly bless you this day!

In Christ's love,
