The Lord Be With You Today!
This is what God the Lord says—
the Creator of the heavens, Who stretches them out,
Who spreads out the earth with all that springs from it,
Who gives breath to its people, and life to those who walk on it:
(It is good to remember exactly Who our God is,
and here He reminds us of the Greatness Who is our God, of Who He really is.
As egocentric as we tend to be, we often forget the magnificence of our God,
the immensity of our God, the absolute other-ness of our God,
that He is not a man and does not think or act like a man.
We tend to think of Him through the perspective of our human intellect,
of our human understanding.
Our view of this God Whom we serve is often little more
than that He is a higher, better level of the best of us,
that He is a sort of super hero with special powers, when, in fact,
He is far above our most unlimited and wide-ranging imagination,
far beyond what we can ever think or reason.
As Creator, He generates, produces, fashions, forms, designs, and originates
everything that we are and everything that is around us.
He is truly beyond description, indescribable,
and the wonder of it all is
that He chooses to bless us today with His Presence,
that He chooses to be in relationship with us,
that He chooses to covenant with us to be our God and to embrace us as His Own!)
May the Lord richly bless you this day!
In Christ’s love,
