The Lord Be With You Today!

Isaiah 42:1a
“Here is My servant, whom I uphold,
(While the Lord is literally referring to Christ as the future Messiah,
He is also talking today to us believers who are in Christ,
He is speaking here to each one of us individually as His servant.
He tells us that He Himself holds each one of us,
keeps us, supports us, provides for us, and that we are His servants.
Just as surely as He upholds His Own Servant Son, He upholds us, as well.
The word “servant” in the original language
refers to a trusted envoy or confidential representative,
meaning that you and I are the trusted envoy
and confidential representative of the Lord God Almighty!)
My chosen one in whom I delight;
(Not only has God chosen His Son as His trusted envoy
to communicate to His creation His love and salvation,
He has also specifically, personally, and individually chosen each one of us.
Just as the Lord expressed His favor and pleasure in His Son,
so He favors and finds pleasure in each of us.
He has not only chosen us, but He delights in His choice! He delights in us!)

May the Lord richly bless you this day!

In Christ’s love,
