The Lord Be With You Today!
Though hail flattens the forest
(As the Lord works in us to bring about His likeness in us,
the grace of His hail of judgment
flattens the forest of the places in our lives
that are not yet healed and made whole.
His judgment, one of His sure attentions to us,
is just as sure as His blessing and just as welcome
so that we don’t continue in unrighteousness,
but grow out of the places that remain barriers
to all that the Lord desires to do in us.)
and the city is leveled completely,
(Even though the difficulties resulting from the Lord’s refusal
to allow us to remain in our unhealed states
may, in many ways, raze our lives,
He brings us low to cause us to look to Him and to His purposes.)
how blessed you will be, sowing your seed by every stream,
and letting your cattle and donkeys range free.
(As His judgment and correction and discipline
move us into wholeness and blessing,
then, our lives are characterized by His rich planting
in us of new life and hope,
a planting watered by the Word of Truth
that allows an expanded freedom of our soul’s prosperity and influence.)
May the Lord richly bless you this Day!
In Christ’s love,
