The Lord Be With You Today!
For this is what the high and exalted One says—
He who lives forever, Whose Name is holy:
(Yahweh, the Great I AM, reminds us of His eternal self-existence,
His holiness and absolute sovereignty,
so juxtaposed against our confined time- and earth-bound limits.)
“I live in a high and holy place, but also with the one
who is contrite and lowly in spirit, to revive the spirit of the lowly
and to revive the heart of the contrite."
(Although this great God, this God Most High, this God Almighty,
dwells in the highest heavens above and outside all of creation,
He also actually chooses to live with us, to be in us who are contrite.
The word contrite in Hebrew actually means broken, crushed, and small.
Compared to the eternal God, we are lowly and small
and without anything attractive or appealing in us.
Yet He awakens and revives us, restores us and builds us up.
He actually revives us by breathing His life into us
and brings us into life in Him, into His presence,
and into His love and His healing.)
May the Lord richly bless you this day!
In Christ’s love,
