Today’s Word. Be blessed.
This is what the LORD says:
and do what is right,
for My salvation is close at hand
and My righteousness will soon be revealed.
2 Blessed is the one who does this—
the person who holds it fast,
who keeps the Sabbath without desecrating it,
and keeps their hands from doing any evil.”
O the promises of God; how rich, how wonderful, and they are free for the taking for you and me. God’s invitation to all people is to “come”. Taste and see how good the Lord God is and your soul will delight in the richest of fare. “Oh, taste and see that the LORD is good; Blessed is the man who trusts in Him!” (Psalm 34:8)
“Come, all you who are thirsty,
come to the waters;
and you who have no money,
come, buy and eat!
Come, buy wine and milk
without money and without cost.
2 Why spend money on what is not bread,
and your labor on what does not satisfy?
Listen, listen to Me, and eat what is good,
and you will delight in the richest of fare.
3 Give ear and come to Me;
listen, that you may live.
I will make an everlasting covenant with you,
Be encouraged today. Because of the faithfulness and unfailing love for His people, YHWH speaks words of comfort to His people.
Though the mountains be shaken
and the hills be removed,
yet My unfailing love for you will not be shaken
nor My covenant of peace be removed,”
says the LORD, who has compassion on you.
6 “This is what the LORD says—
Israel’s King and Redeemer, the LORD Almighty:
‘I am the First and I am the Last;
Besides Me there is no God.
How awesome is this! This is God Almighty – Creator of heaven and earth speaking. Thank you God that you forgive us our sins and remembering them no more.
18 “Forget the former things; do not dwell on the past.
19 See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it?
I am making a way in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland.
25 “I, even I, am He who blots out your transgressions for My own sake;
And I will not remember your sins.
Thank you God that you forgive us our sins and remembering them no more.
Do not fear for the Lord Your God loves you. He created you by forming you in the womb. He desires a relationship with you. Do not fear – instead call upon His Name.
9 I took you from the ends of the earth,
from its farthest corners I called you.
I said, ‘You are My servant’;
I have chosen you and have not rejected you.
10 So do not fear, for I am with you;
do not be dismayed, for I am your God.
I will strengthen you and help you;
I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.
11 “All who rage against you
will surely be ashamed and disgraced;
those who oppose you
will be as nothing and perish.
12 Though you search for your enemies,
you will not find them.
Those who wage war against you
will be as nothing at all.
13 For I am the LORD your God
who takes hold of your right hand
and says to you, Do not fear;
I will help you.
There is hope in the Lord God!
21 Do you not know?
Have you not heard?
Has it not been told you from the beginning?
Have you not understood since the earth was founded?
22 He sits enthroned above the circle of the earth,
and its people are like grasshoppers.
He stretches out the heavens like a canopy,
and spreads them out like a tent to live in.
25 “To whom will you compare Me?
Or who is My equal?” says the Holy One.
26 Lift up your eyes and look to the heavens:
Who created all these?
He who brings out the starry host one by one
and calls forth each of them by name.
Because of His great power and mighty strength,
not one of them is missing.
28 Do you not know?
Have you not heard?
The LORD is the everlasting God,
the Creator of the ends of the earth.
He will not grow tired or weary,
and His understanding no one can fathom.
29 He gives strength to the weary
and increases the power of the weak.
30 Even youths grow tired and weary,
and young men stumble and fall;
31 but those who hope in the LORD
will renew their strength.
They will soar on wings like eagles;
they will run and not grow weary,
they will walk and not be faint.
