The Lord Be With You Today!

Isaiah 43:16a
This is what the Lord says—
(God’s people were in exile and in bondage again now to Babylon.
And the Lord is calling to His people to listen to Him.
Because of Who He is, He can demand their attention.
He wants their attention.
He speaks to them as their covenant Lord,
as their Creator, as their God.
He speaks to them when they are in trouble.
Today, when we are in trouble, the Lord still speaks to us.
He speaks to us out of the mercy of His love and grace,
out of His deep longing to catch our attention
and to focus our hearts and minds on Him.
He speaks with authority in the midst of our trouble.
He still has authority over our deepest troubles and difficulties,
over our finances, over our healing, over our needs, whatever they are.
His Voice, His Word still rings out with the truth of His presence,
of His power, of His sovereignty, in every aspect of our lives.
If He is speaking to us today, and He is, we need to listen closely to Him.)

May the Lord richly bless you this day!

In Christ’s love,
