The Lord Be With You Today!
"I have seen their ways, but I will heal them;
(God knows everything about us, our faults, our failures,
our flaws, our frailties, our disobedience, our rebellion, our sin.
He sees our every rebellious attitude and thought,
and yet, and yet, He chooses us and promises
that He will heal and restore and reclaim us.)
I will guide them and restore comfort to Israel’s mourners,
creating praise on their lips. Peace, peace, to those far and near,”
says the Lord. “And I will heal them."
(As disobedient, as unfaithful, as undeserving as God’s people had been,
as disobedient, as unfaithful, as undeserving as we are at times today,
as filled with despair and regret for our attitudes and actions as we may be,
the Lord declares that His mercy for us always prevails.
He never gives us the punishment that our actions and attitudes truly deserve,
but rather generously pours out over us what we could never earn,
what we would never deserve, what we could never achieve on our own.
He declares His peace over us, His full and complete well-being over us,
a peace that passes all human understanding,
a peace that bridges the impassable gulf between God and man
that we could never cross on our own.
Today He gives us His incredible peace, His full pardon and healing in Him.
Out of His great and mighty love, He gives us
His guidance and restoration and comfort and encouragement.)
May the Lord richly bless you this day!
In Christ’s love,
