Passage: Matthew 12:15-21
Verse: Matthew 12:21 (NIV 2011)
In his name the nations will put their hope.
Have you been chosen by God to be one of His servants? Have you been touched by His Holy Spirit? Oh, if you say yes to these questions, does God have a plan for you and your life! One of the Old Testament prophets proclaimed:
He has shown you, O mortal, what is good.
And what does the Lord require of you?
To act justly and to love mercy
and to walk humbly with your God. (Micah 6:8)
It is about justice, mercy, and humbly being in a relationship with the Lord.
May the Lord, our God be delighted with His servants today. May the Holy Spirit be at work in us and through us today. May we point those we love and care about, in addition to those we meet, work with, or are acquainted with, to our Lord and Savior by our words, actions, and deeds. May we do and see justice done and may victory in Christ come. Remember, this day and always, where our hope comes from – it comes from the Lord.
