The Lord Be With You Today!
Like birds hovering overhead,
the Lord Almighty will shield Jerusalem;
(Birds fly in swiftly from above like a missile
to protect and defend their nest.
This God Who hovers over us is above us
and over all that comes against us to steal us from His hand.
Even as a bird fiercely darts in to protect its own,
so the Lord shields and protects us today.
Even as the Lord shields His Jerusalem,
so the LORD Almighty will shield "put your own name here.")
He will shield it and deliver it,
(He not only defends Jerusalem,
but He will also deliver and rescue it.
Our deliverance and rescue are secure today in His hands.)
He will ‘pass over’ it and will rescue it.
(Just as the death angel passed over the Israelites
when the Lord brought judgment
on the rebellious and oppressive Egyptians,
protecting those He called His own,
so today His judgment passes over us
who have been redeemed by the blood of Jesus.
Because we belong to the Lord,
He rescues us from the places in our lives
where we have been held captive
and where the enemy has gained a foothold in our lives
and stolen territory that belongs to the Lord.)
May the Lord richly bless you this day!
In Christ’s love,
