The Lord Be With You Today!
No sooner are they planted, no sooner are they sown,
no sooner do they take root in the ground,
than He blows on them and they wither,
and a whirlwind sweeps them away like chaff.
(Just as He has placed us strategically in the roles we fulfill today,
the Lord reminds us that He has established
the rulers and powers in office over us,
that He "plants" them in their roles,
that He decides when their rule is finished,
and that all those He has placed in office are subject to His control.
He is the One Who changes times and seasons.
He has established the cycles of sowing and growing and decline in us,
as well as in rulers over us.
He knows the ways of man, and He reigns over the ways of man,
even over those in power and those who rule.
God’s plans are not bound by the plans of those in leadership
or by our own incomplete and limited thinking and rule.
Despite what the world looks like through the news of the day,
despite what our lives may look like
through the circumstances we may face today,
the Lord’s Kingdom in this world and in our lives is being and will be established.
Those valleys and hardships we face today are subject to His authority,
and He causes them to wither away and fall away from us
like chaff in the wind of His breath.
He rules. He reigns. He is entirely trustworthy and powerful.
In Him our foundation is built on the Rock that is His salvation.
Our hope today is entirely in Him.)
May the Lord richly bless you this day!
In Christ’s love,
