The Lord Be With You Today!

Isaiah 55:3-4
Give ear and come to Me; listen, that you may live.
(The Lord tells us to listen to Him and His message,
not just because He, God Almighty, is speaking
–although that is reason enough–
but because doing so benefits us, more than benefits us,
actually provides the words of life to us.
In Him, in His message to us, is the very fabric of life itself.)
I will make an everlasting covenant with you,
My faithful love promised to David.
(God's eternal and unchanging covenant with us
is based in the same one He made first with His servant David,
a metaphorical picture of His later Messiah,
a covenant in which He has declared and vowed to be our God,
to provide His people forever with a godly King,
to provide the salvation and redemption that He knows we need,
to establish us in the Promised Land of His provision and rest,
and to call us His inheritance and His friends.)
See, I have made him a witness to the peoples,
a ruler and commander of the peoples.
(The Lord has given us a real-life picture through David
of His great and endless love and saving power to a servant of His.
The Lord also shows us through David a picture of His future Messiah
Whom He will set over His people to rule in integrity and victory.
Today, in Christ, we are the recipients of the Lord's covenant with us
and His complete spiritual and physical provision for us.)

May the Lord richly bless you this day!

In Christ's love,
