The Lord Be With You Today!
"The children of your oppressors will come bowing before you;
all who despise you will bow down at your feet
(The Lord declares He will cause those
who had formerly been enemies of His people
to come before them with respect and honor.
Because He had chosen the Hebrews
as a special people set apart to Himself,
He vows they will no longer be overrun, conquered, and oppressed,
but will experience a place of honor in the world
so that even their former enemies will submit to them.
The Lord promises us today that we, too, will be restored
from our former position of hardship and oppression
and will be elevated to places of prominence and honor,
not because of our own intrinsic worth, but because of the worth
that the Lord has placed on us and in us through the salvation of His Son.)
and will call you the City of the Lord, Zion of the Holy One of Israel."
(Because the Lord will be acknowledge as Lord,
His people will also be acknowledged as honored and chosen,
no longer outcasts or living in exile.
Today, we can walk in the truth of who we are in the Lord,
chosen, a City of God and His dwelling place, holy ones of the Lord,
set on a mission of hope and restoration to the world around us.)
May the Lord richly bless you this day!
In Christ’s love,
