In that day the Branch of the Lord
will be beautiful and glorious.
FROM THE FATHER'S HEART
My child, I've heard your cries and protests. When the heat is turned up, My love rises even higher. Do you not know I see and hear the injustices you feel? Do you not realize I am providing for you even in the moments of your greatest frustrations? No matter where you go, I will cover you with My comforting grace.
A GRATEFUL RESPONSE
Lord, You are a towering branch that protects me from the sweltering heat of oppression. Hovering over me, You shelter me with the shade of Your Spirit each day. I have felt the refreshing breath of Your presence, and I am grateful for the sweetness of Your comfort. O Lord, how beautiful is Your name!
God's mercies never dry up. His "branches" will always reach far enough to cover us.
