The Lord Be With You Today!
This is what the Lord says to me:
“As a lion growls, a great lion over its prey—
and though a whole band of shepherds
is called together against it,
it is not frightened by their shouts
or disturbed by their clamor—
(When the lion has successfully slain a lamb,
he will stand in defiant protection of his spoils
and ward off any other marauders or any people
who might try to frighten him away to steal away his catch.
Resolute and determined and fiercely protective,
the lion stands completely aloof to any attempts
of the many shepherds nearby to scare him away
with their shouts and noise and greater numbers.)
so the Lord Almighty will come down
to do battle on Mount Zion and on its heights."
(The Lord is even more protective of His people, of you and me,
and stands unyielding and indomitable over us
to defend us from any encroaching attempts
to steal us away from His care.
We belong to Him because He has captured us
with the power of His love.
What a picture of the Lord’s fierce defense and protection of His people.
Today, the Lord has descended to the Mount Zion of our lives
and to the lambs He has secured.
He stands over us to protect His own,
and He thwarts any intruders,
whether they are people or lures of the world,
that would seek to snatch His people out of His Hand.)
May the Lord richly bless you this day!
In Christ’s love,
