The Lord Be With You Today!
The unclean will not journey on it; wicked fools will not go about on it.
(Having been invaded and banished from their homeland
because of their disobedience, and now because they have repented,
the Israelites are returning to their promised land,
and the Lord has provided an elevated causeway
over which His redeemed and cleansed may travel.
Those who have not accepted God’s invitation to salvation and His way
will not traverse this highway of our God.)
No lion will be there, nor any ravenous beast; they will not be found there.
(On this Way of Holiness, no prowling attackers will be permitted
to devour those who travel safely on the Lord’s highway of life.
Even the enemy who walks about like a roaring lion
will be unable to devour those who are protected and safe in the Lord’s way.)
But only the redeemed will walk there, and those the Lord has rescued will return.
(Today, as His redeemed, as those He has bought from the slavery of sin,
the Lord as our Kinsman-Redeemer, as our blood relative
Who has provided the price for our redemption,
calls us out of captivity to walk in His way.
He rescues us today so that we can walk with Him on His Highway of Holiness.)
May the Lord richly bless you this day!
In Christ’s love,
