The Lord Be With You Today!
I, even I, have spoken; yes, I have called him.
I will bring him, and he will succeed in his mission.
(Already being carried out even before the man was born,
the Lord's proclamation is declared with emphasis,
with Him repeating that it is He Himself Who has spoken,
that He would use a man named Cyrus, a future Persian king,
to deliver His people from their Babylonian exile
and that He would make sure that man is successful
in the endeavors God Himself has ordained for him.
In His limitless, omniscient power, not only is the Lord foretelling this future event,
He is also declaring who He will use and how He will bring about
the deliverance of His people from their Babylonian exile.
Knowing beforehand the exact places of hardship and loss and trial
in which we ourselves would find ourselves entrapped one day in our own Babylon,
the Lord has also ordained for us to be set free from these places
and, even more, just as He proclaimed for Cyrus, for us to walk out specific missions
for which He Himself will provide success for us.
We can be assured today that the Lord has specific and unique missions
for each one of us, missions He has designed with our needs and strengths in mind.
The Lord has declared these promises long before we were born,
and they will come to pass because He has vowed He would make us over-comers
and cause us to walk out His purposes.)
May the Lord richly bless you this day!
In Christ's love,
