The Lord Be With You Today!
Do not be afraid, O worm Jacob, O little Israel,
(That’s who we are: fragile, small, unable, weak, insignificant.
As we put our own name here as the worm and the little one
once again we hear His command.
The reason we can be free from fear is because of His perfect love.
His perfect love casts out all fear.
When we stand in the presence of His all-encompassing and perfect love,
there is no longer space for any feeble fear that we might harbor.
His love completely overpowers any fear that has built itself in us.)
for I myself will help you,”
(He is so interested in our hurt and need,
so interested in supplying our need,
He promises He Himself will rush to our aid.
He doesn’t send one of His underlings.
He Himself personally and intimately and passionately reaches out to us)
declares the LORD, your Redeemer, the Holy One of Israel.
(He has said it, declared it, promised His redemption.
He is the Indomitable and Magnificent Covenant God
Who has said…put your name here… belongs to Him and He is yours!)
May the Lord richly bless you this day!
In Christ’s love,
