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

TODAY’S WORD…

.

For as the earth brings forth its shoots,
and as a garden causes what is sown in it to spring up,
so the Lord God will cause righteousness and praise
to spring up before all the nations.

.

– Isaiah 61:11 (NRSV)

REFLECTION…

.

What an exceedingly beautiful picture

– that on the coming of the Messiah,

truth and righteousness springs up and abounds

just like a garden comes to life when the earth is watered with rain.

.

Like the shoot, or the young and tender plant as it comes up from the earth

– that which first appears from the seed –

so God’s great work of salvation breaks out and appears

and righteousness springs forth when Christ is born!

.

That spirit of righteousness abounds over all the earth

as men and women of goodwill celebrate

and joyfully praise the bountiful love of God.

.

.

.

REPETITIVE PRAYER FOR TODAY…

.

Glory be to You, O Heavenly Father,

for loving us so much!
