The Lord Be With You Today!

Isaiah 45:4a
For the sake of Jacob My servant,
(put your own name here)
of Israel My chosen
(Because of His beloved servant, because of His Own people,
the Lord has made specific declarations.
Today, because of….you—whom He chose and singled out,
because of His love for you and for your sake,
those same specific declarations apply to you.)
I summon you by name
(He beckons us to come to Him, to give ourselves to Him, to trust in Him.
He calls us forth to step into His presence and blessings.)
and bestow on you a title of honor,
(His blessings are untold. He has plans and purposes for our lives
that are far beyond our imagination.
He honors us with a heavenly title that He bestows on us
and that privileges us as a special, chosen, beloved one of His.)
though you do not acknowledge Me.
(Before we even knew He was calling us
and were totally unaware of His desire to save us,
He was working on our behalf, to woo us to Himself.
The Lord extends the blessings of His presence and His love
even when we fail Him, even when we forget Him,
even when we don’t acknowledge His Own mighty and loving and trustworthy attributes,
even when we don’t believe what He says or Who He says He is.
Today, He acknowledges us as His very Own.)

May the Lord richly bless you this day!

In Christ’s love,
