The Lord Be With You Today!

Isaiah 40:22b
He stretches out the heavens like a canopy,
and spreads them out like a tent to live in.
(Our God is not a human-sized god.
He is not a god who fits nicely within our human-sized boundaries.
He is not a god who obeys us or our restrictions and definitions
or our limited and ineffectual understanding.
He not only lives in the heavens, He reigns above them and over them.
He spreads them out as if they were a thin curtain covering over the earth.
Like a canopy of finely woven fabric of gauze that God spreads over us,
the heavens are a visible picture of the protective covering
that He Himself has placed over us.
He has made the heavens the very curtains of His tent

within which He has placed us
and within which He chooses to dwell with us.
As great and impenetrable and massive and immovable
as the heavens are above us,
so the God Who hovers over us
is as great and impenetrable and massive and immovable.
Knowing that God is this kind of God, today, we can trust in Him,
we can rely on Him, we can rest in Him.       )

May the Lord richly bless you this day!

In Christ’s love,
