The Lord Be With You Today!

Isaiah 42:1b-2
I will put My Spirit on Him, and He will bring justice to the nations.
(As God describes His anointing and favor over His Son the coming Messiah,
the Lord also calls each of us to submit to His Spirit on and in us
and to engage in His mission to bring His peace to our world.
He promises He will give us a covering,
a covering of His Own very Holy Spirit, the third person in the Godhead,
to empower us to do His will, to follow His way.
As surely as Christ was led by the Holy Spirit,
we can depend on the same Holy Spirit to lead us
and to help us to walk out God’s purposes in our lives.)
He will not shout or cry out, or raise His voice in the streets.
(God the Father did not send a Messiah into His world
to wage war and engage in military battle,
to overthrow the government of the world’s systems,
but Jesus came as a Savior and Teacher and Servant
to all those people the Father wants to draw into His family.
Just as the Lord sent a Messiah Whose strength
was in His humility and gentleness in His outreach to His world,
the Lord also sends us out into the world to serve in humility and love.)

May the Lord richly bless you this day!

In Christ’s love,
