All who have raged against Him will come to Him and be put to shame.
But all the descendants of Israel will find deliverance in the Lord
and will make their boast in Him.
(Here is the stark contrast that the Lord offers each of us.
Out of His great love, He actually gives us a choice.
We can choose to rail against the Lord's plans for us
and rebelliously resist Him and His plans,
refusing to yield to Him and insisting on following our own path,
or we can choose to find our salvation and rescue in Him.
His plans for us may not look like what we might have planned
or what we think our lives should look like,
but His will for us is perfect and includes larger plans that we cannot see.
Today we are among the descendants of Israel,
today we are among God's Own chosen people,
and our boasting is not in our own strength or abilities, but in Him.
Today as we seek the Lord, as we yield to Him, as we follow after Him,
He promises us deliverance as He brings us into alignment
with His mighty purposes for each of us.)
May the Lord richly bless you this day!
In Christ's love,
