The Lord Be With You Today!

Isaiah 33:21
There the Lord will be our Mighty One.
(As He brought His people into the City of God, into Jerusalem,
establishing it as His chosen dwelling place,
there, in the place where the Lord is, the Lord Almighty reigns,
and His is a Kingdom where His sovereign power is complete
and where His peace and stability rule.)
It will be like a place of broad rivers and streams.
(Not incidentally, Jerusalem has no river in its boundaries
because it is watered by the river of God's presence.
In the same way, His presence in our lives today
waters our lives with living water, with all we need from Him.
Jerusalem's literal lack of a river water supply
is a picture of lack and insufficiency in our own lives.
It was no accident that God chose a city
with no natural water supply as His dwelling place.
He Himself is Jerusalem's rich and plentiful supply,
and He is the supply in our lives today,
making our lives productive and fertile.)
No galley with oars will ride them,
(Just as a broad moat or river surrounding an encampment
protects it from intruders, serving as a buffering barrier,
the mighty river of God's Presence protects us today, as well,
and nothing can breach the protective river of His love that surrounds us.)

May the Lord richly bless you this day!

In Christ's love,
