The Lord Be With You Today!

Isaiah 44:21a
"Remember these things, O Jacob,
(Put your name here. Each person’s individual name goes here.
Each one of us is God’s chosen "Jacob," who is, at times,
like the man Jacob, sinful and deceitful and tries to control our own destiny
through our own devises and means.
The Lord is telling us
to remember how foolishly prone we are
to forming tangible idols from the craftsmanship of our own hands
and even forming intangible idol beliefs from our own vain imaginings.)
for you are My servant, O Israel."
(Put your name here. Each person’s individual name goes here.
Each one of us is God’s chosen "Israel," whose name, like Jacob,
has been changed by God to indicate our new calling,
our new nature, our new standing in the sight of God
brought about by God’s visitation with us.
Today, the Lord God Almighty, the Lord of the universe
has chosen to visit us to declare He has chosen us as His attendant,
His very Own servant to birth His very purposes in us today.
One of the reasons the Lord calls us a servant
and honors us with that position is that He has work for us.
As a servant has tasks and purpose and a calling,
so we as one of the servants of the Most High God
have a calling, a purpose, for our life.
The Lord gave Jacob a new name, a covenant name,
an honored title pointing to his position as the father of the people
whom God had foreordained to be His people.

Today, the Lord has also called us to glorious purpose, to significant task,
and to the work He has purposed for us to fulfill.
He has chosen us as His envoy, His ambassador, His emissary, His messenger,
to become the foundation of, the source for, the "father" of,
His new life in us and for those around us whose lives God touches through us.)

May the Lord richly bless you this day!

In Christ’s love,
