The Lord Be With You Today!
“I, the LORD, have called you in righteousness;
(When the Lord God calls us, He calls us by name,
specifically and individually.
As Righteous God Who reaches out to us
to covenant with us and to make us His Own,
He reveals His righteous and perfect will toward us.
When the Lord calls us, He sets us apart,
and He calls us into the covering of His righteousness,
knowing that we could not even pretend
to offer such status back to Him.
He extends His Own goodness to us to cover us
and put us in right standing with Him.)
I will take hold of your hand."
(The stunning beauty of the Lord’s call of righteousness toward us
is the way He finalizes and completes that outreach.
He holds our hand! What a picture!
The Lord doesn’t reach out to us reluctantly, hesitantly, halfheartedly,
holding His nose, as it were, at the stench of our unrighteousness,
but eagerly and passionately chooses to embrace and encircle us,
inviting us to take on all that He is in place of all that we are.
The very God of the universe reaches out
to take firm hold of our hand today!)
May the Lord richly bless you this day!
In Christ’s love,
