Then you will call, and the LORD will answer;
you will cry for help, and he will say: Here am I.
"If you do away with the yoke of oppression,
with the pointing finger and malicious talk,
and if you spend yourselves in behalf of the hungry
and satisfy the needs of the oppressed,
then your light will rise in the darkness,
and your night will become like the noonday.
The LORD will guide you always;
he will satisfy your needs in a sun-scorched land
and will strengthen your frame.
You will be like a well-watered garden,
like a spring whose waters never fail.
Your people will rebuild the ancient ruins
and will raise up the age-old foundations;
you will be called Repairer of Broken Walls,
Restorer of Streets with Dwellings.
I have read this passage about 4 times just this morning. The Word literally brings life to my bones. I have been taking on some random anxiety that came out of nowhere. I have never had an anxiety attack or have not struggled with anxiousness or fear of what could happen until recently. I have a handful of people in my life that are dealing with heavy things. Maybe my spirit is HEAVY for them. Either way, I have committed this to the Lord and taken the responsibility to pray for my hurting sisters very seriously.
I love the first part of this passage that gives us wisdom and advice on how to find abundant living in HIM. Then the promises start flowing .....HE will guide us, HE will water us, HE will satisfy and strengthen us, HE repairs and restores!! TO GOD BE THE GLORY! I cannot read that without a loud shout of GLORY!! Can someone join in please!?
HE WILL SATISFY, COMFORT and HOLD US
in the palm of HIS HAND!
I do not want to be anywhere else!!
