The Lord Be With You Today!
"You are My witnesses."
(The Lord reminds Israel of this charge that He has given them,
not while they were victorious conquerors,
not while they were on "easy street" enjoying the easy life,
but while they were in the very throes of bondage and captivity,
while they were exiled from their homeland
and all that was dear and familiar to them,
to remind them that their present situation was not the end,
that their present was not forever, that their present was not their only.
Just as Israel was chosen to be a witness to Who God is,
so we, too, are called to be truth-carriers of Who He is,
of God’s purposes, of His character, of His power, of His sovereignty.
We are the most effective witnesses when we are in the very trials
that we often think are signs of our defeat,
when, in fact, they proclaim the power and might
of the living God in our situations.
We reflect Who God is because of Who He is in our lives,
because of what He does in our lives,
because of His deliverance from situations that beset us.
He gives us the awesome privilege today
of bearing witness to Him and His works.)
May the Lord richly bless you this day!
In Christ’s love,
