The Spirit of Sovereign Lord is upon me, for The Lord has anointed me to bring good news to the poor. He has sent me to comfort the brokenhearted and to proclaim that captives will be released and prisoners will be freed. He has sent me to tell those that mourn that the time of the Lord’s favor has come, and with it, the day of God’s anger against their enemies.
“But in that coming day no weapon formed against you will prosper. You will silence every voice raised up to accuse you. These benefits are enjoyed by the servants of the Lord. Their vindication will come from me. I, the Lord, have spoken!”
One of my life passages.
I hope a you moms have had a great day with your kids. I know I did. My youngest son took me out to a nice restaurant for dinner. My oldest gave me a big oh bear hug. I love them both with all of my heart. I am so blessed to have the honor and privilege of being mom to two wonderful sons!
“For I have chosen this Temple and set it apart to be holy-a place where my name will be honored forever. I will always watch over it, for it is dear to my heart.”
(We too, are God’s Temple, and we too, are set apart to be holy. We are to honor God forever. God will watch over us because we are dear to his heart.)
Then David continued, “Be strong and courageous, and do the work. Don’t be afraid or discouraged, for the Lord God, my God, is with you. He will not fail you or forsake you. He will see to it that all the work related to the Temple of The Lord is finished correctly.
(God has chosen us as his Temple. He will finish the work that he has started in us, (Phil. 1:6. ) and he will be mindful of EVERY DETAIL. We are in good hands!)
But it was the Lord’s good plan to crush him (Jesus) and cause him grief. Yet when his life is made an offering for sin, he will have many descendants. He will enjoy a long life, and the Lord’s good plan will prosper in his hands. When he sees all that is accomplished by his anguish, he will be satisfied. And because of his experience, my righteous servant (Jesus) will make it possible for many (us, you and I) to be counted righteous, for he will bear ALL their sins!
(Amen and Hallelujah!)
