The Lord Be With You Today!

Isaiah 55:7a
Let the wicked forsake their ways and the unrighteous their thoughts.
(Who are the wicked? Any of us who veer away, whether by action or thought,
from God's holy way or God's holy purposes.
When we do fall into, step into, or are thrown into evil ways, as we repent,
our merciful and forgiving God wraps us in His mercy and forgiveness,
in His provision and purpose, and restores our relationship with Him.
We are always in need of surrendering our ways and embracing the ways of God.

We always need to turn away from our own selfish desires

and our own stubborn ways and turn to the Lord.

We need to examine our will and recognize

that we often attribute our own will as being God’s will.

Rather, as we renounce and relinquish actions and thoughts

that even hint at being disobedient to the Lord’s way
we can turn
aside from those places in our lives
that are displeasing to the Lord.

As we repent and call on Him for forgiveness,

He is always, always ready to forgive when we ask Him.)

May the Lord richly bless you this day!

In Christ's love,
