“a Lamp to my feet. a Light for my path.” – Isaiah 61:11

TODAY’S WORD…

.

For as the soil makes the young plant come up
and a garden causes seeds to grow,
so the Sovereign Lord will make righteousness
and praise spring up before all nations.

.

– Isaiah 61:11 (NIV)

REFLECTION…

.

What wonderful news for mankind!

How reassuring for all men and women of good will

as we gladly and with great expectation

look forward to the fulfilment of our hope!

.

Hope is founded on the God’s love of justice

which overthrows all forms of oppression

and brings wholeness, joy and praise.

.

Our hope ultimately falls back onto the One in whom we have hope.

It is the Lord who is our hope;

the very ground of that hope;

the end of it

– and our faith is grounded in that divine conviction.

.

The Sovereign Lord will make righteousness
and praise spring up before all nations.

Just as seeds grow into plants which can be seen,

so God will cause people to be joined with Him;

to grow in Him;

to praise Him;

thus bearing witness to His glory.

.

QUOTE…

.

“And now, just as you accepted Christ Jesus as your Lord,

you must continue to follow Him.

Let your roots grow down into Him,

and let your lives be built on Him.

Then your faith will grow strong in the truth you were taught,

and you will overflow with thankfulness.”

.

– St. Paul (Col 2:6-7)

.

.

.

REPETITIVE PRAYER FOR TODAY…

.

Jesus, You are my hope, You are my life,

and I will praise You for evermore!
