The Lord Be With You Today!
“You heavens above, rain down My righteousness;
let the clouds shower it down.
(The Lord commands His creation to respond to His command.
He declares that His righteous rule, His salvation,
is as abundant and pervasive as rainfall from the heavens above.
As we stand under His shower of righteousness,
we are covered and soaked in His goodness.
When He delivers us from exile and captivity in our lives,
His goodness permeates us as we stand under and soak in His rain,
as we stand under and soak in His reign in our lives.)
Let the earth open wide, let salvation spring up,
let righteousness flourish with it; I, the Lord, have created it."
(As heaven's resources pour down over the earth,
it responds by bringing forth its produce.
As heaven's resources pour down over us today,
our responses reveal His salvation in us, our focus on the Lord,
and the fruit of our maturing walk with the Him.
As we acknowledge Him today in our lives,
He sets us under His salvation and righteousness
so that we bear the fruit of all that He has planted within us.)
May the Lord richly bless you this day!
