The Lord Be With You Today!

Isaiah 52:5c-6
“And all day long My Name is constantly blasphemed.
(Expressing pride in their accomplishment
of defeating Israel
and forcing her into exile,
the Babylonian captors
exult in their oppression of God's people
and mock the God of Israel as powerless.
Any time we as God's people are bound in exile and captivity
to the forces and oppressors of the world,
the attack is on the Lord and it is His Name that is mocked,
a situation that will yield dire consequences
to those who do mock the Lord's people and blaspheme His Name.)

Therefore My people will know My Name;
(God will not tolerate an attack on His Name or His people,
so He makes sure that we as God's people will see the mighty deliverance
that the Lord will provide and by that evidence
we will acknowledge Him and His mighty Name.)

therefore in that day they will know

that it is I Who foretold it.
Yes, it is I.”
(No mere man has declared a deliverance for us today,
but the Lord God Almighty has declared it,
and He will cause us to see Him in new and,
to this point, unknown ways as our Deliverer and Victor.
When we actually experience His Presence and deliverance,
we will know that what He said He would do He has done,
a monument to the truthfulness of the what the Lord says.
Today, He says our deliverance is at hand
and that He is the One Who has declared it and brought it about.)

May the Lord richly bless you this day!

In Christ's love,
