The Lord Be With You Today!
For this is what the Lord says—
He who created the heavens, He is God;
He Who fashioned and made the earth, He founded it;
(Once again, the Lord declares the clarion truth
of His sovereignty, of His power, of His authorship,
of His ownership of all of creation.
Once again, the Lord reminds us of Who He is,
only because we constantly need to be reminded
of His omniscient, omnipotent, omnipresent BE-ing,
that God is the Author of all that is around us,
that God is Lord, and that He reigns in sovereign and absolute power.)
He did not create it to be empty, but formed it to be inhabited—
He says: “I am the Lord, and there is no other.
(If He has founded all that we see around us,
even knowing that much more exists which we cannot see,
if we see the absolute wonder and magnificence of His work,
how much more does it seem reasonable and sure
that He also has our lives in the very palm of His Hand.
He has caused us to be in this place at this moment in time
and chooses to reveal Himself as Lord
over all the circumstances in our lives that seem so daunting.
He reminds us, yet again, that He is Lord, the God of covenant with us,
the God Whose covenant of salvation and redemption and deliverance
has brought us to the place we are today
so that He can show Himself strong on our behalf.
Far from leaving us in the throes of destruction,
He chooses to use what seems impossible to reveal the possible in Himself.)
May the Lord richly bless you this day!
