The Lord Be With You Today!

Isaiah 61:7b
And so you will inherit a double portion in your land
(Not only will God’s people be released from the shame and disgrace
of their disobedience and past failures,
not only will they be rewarded by being given a recompense
for the hardships they had suffered,
hardships brought on themselves by themselves
as they experienced the Lord’s discipline and consequences of their actions,
but now, because they have obediently endured their just correction from the Lord,
they will also be granted a double inheritance
of what the Lord had promised them.
The inheritance of the Lord comes to us because He grants us
the inheritance reserved for the first-born, one we share with Christ,
and that inheritance is ours today, right now,
in the land where we live, in our present-day lives.
No matter what the present “land” looks like today,
what our life looks like, humanly speaking,
the truth is that our inheritance assures us that we live rich and large
in the double portion of our inheritance from the Lord.)
and everlasting joy will be yours.
(He offers us today abundance and ample inheritance.
We are not paupers in the Kingdom, barely eking out an existence.
Rather, we are given access to and filled with
the joy of the Lord, a joy unspeakable that will be our strength!
When we depend on Him for all we are and have and do,
the Lord lifts our burdens, and He replaces them
with His pure joy and rest and abandon and abundance in Him!)

May the Lord richly bless you this day!

In Christ’s love,
