The Lord Be With You Today!
Every stroke the Lord lays on them with His punishing club
(When the Assyrians came against Israel,
the Lord rescued Israel with the club of His righteousness and judgment.
The Lord fights our battles today
with the fierceness of His love and the might of His strength.
He still comes against the Assyrians in our lives,
and He strikes them with His strong right arm of justice.)
will be to the music of timbrels and harps,
(We rejoice each time we see the Lord triumph over the enemy.
It is the Lord Who wages this battle, not us.
While He wages war against our enemies,
we rejoice in Him and in His victory.
Our job is to focus on Him,
to "wait" on Him in the fullest sense of the word,
to experience Him through His Word and prayer and worship,
actively pressing into Him in praise and devotion.)
as He fights them in battle with the blows of His arm.
(Whether it takes one or twenty blows to defeat all that comes against us,
the Lord is our Protector and Warrior and He is the Victor.
The battle belongs to the Lord.
He never fails and is never defeated.
Because we belong to Him, He protects His own!)
May the Lord richly bless you this day!
In Christ’s love,
