See, My Servant will act wisely;
He will be raised and lifted up and highly exalted.
(The Lord declares here that His Messiah is His Servant
dedicated to complete loyalty and service to God, a Bond Slave,
and that His actions and behaviors, His reign,
will spring forth from the sure foundation of God's great wisdom and discernment,
the kind of wisdom that results in a reign of goodness and prosperity.
The Lord's high and exalted place is the seat of the highest honor,
at the very right Hand of God Himself.
Today, this message to Israel then and to us now reaffirms
the legitimacy of putting our faith in this Servant of the Lord, this Jesus.
The Lord also calls us who are a reflection of the Servant Messiah,
as His servant and bond slave ourselves, to act wisely and prudently,
to act from the wisdom of the Lord.
He also promises us, as the very reflection of His Messiah,
that we will be raised and lifted up and exalted,
not only before others, but also before the Lord.
Today, if we are in a place of brokenness and discord,
God Himself declares that He will vindicate and honor us,
that, even as He rescued His Messiah, He will rescue us.)
May the Lord richly bless you this day!
In Christ's love,
