The Lord Be With You Today!
I have not spoken in secret, from somewhere in a land of darkness;
I have not said to Jacob’s descendants, ‘Seek Me in vain.’
I, the Lord, speak the truth; I declare what is right.
(Not only is our God Lord, but He is the God Who sees us,
the God Who seeks us out, the God Who pursues us,
the God Who calls us to reveal Himself to us,
to make Himself known, to show Himself strong on our behalf.
He does not hide Himself nor does He make Himself hard to find.
He is present in all His ways at all times.
He doesn't take a break, He doesn't get tired,
He doesn't get caught off guard, He doesn't ever leave His throne.
He has promised to be found by us.
In fact, He doesn't leave it up to us to find Him.
He relentlessly pursues us, surrounding us so we can't miss Him,
finding us when we don't even know we need to be found,
choosing us before we ever even know we should choose Him,
even before He even gives us the opportunity to choose Him.
Today, as He reveals Himself to us as Truth, then, of course,
all He says about Himself and about us today is right and true.)
May the Lord richly bless you this day!
In Christ's love,
