Our Daily Bread For Today 27 December 2021 Devotional, Monday Message Written By Elisa Morgan (Our Daily Bread Ministries)  || ODB Reading

TOPIC: God’s Right Hand

TODAY’S SCRIPTURE: Isaiah 41:8–13

KEY VERSE: I am the Lord your God who takes hold of your right hand and says to you, Do not fear; I will help you. – Isaiah 41:13

BIBLE IN A YEAR: Zechariah 1–4Revelation 18

TODAY’S INSIGHT: Isaiah, whose name means “the Lord saves,” prophesied for about fifty years (740–685 bc). He warned an unrepentant, idolatrous Judah that God would use the Assyrians and the Babylonians to discipline her for her covenantal unfaithfulness (CHS. 1–39). But Isaiah also speaks of God’s grace for those who repent and future glorious restoration (CHS. 11; 40–66). In Isaiah 41:8–13, God reminds His people that they have a special relationship with Him—they’ve been sovereignly “chosen” to be “his treasured possession” (Deuteronomy 7:6–8); they’re “the apple of his eye” (32:10). They were the descendants of Abraham, whom God affectionately called “my friend” (Isaiah 41:8). Only Abraham and Moses (Exodus 33:11) were privileged to be called God’s friend. Judah is accorded a special status as “my servant” (Isaiah 41:8–9)—the same honorific name given to Moses (Malachi 4:4) and David (1 Kings 11:13).

OUR DAILY BREAD FOR TODAY

MESSAGE

I helped my elderly dog, Wilson, out to the grass and in the process, I released the leash of our younger dog, Coach, for just a minute. As I bent to pick up Coach’s lead, he spied a bunny. Off he went, ripping the leash from my right hand and corkscrewing my ring finger in the process. I fell to the grass and cried out in pain.

After returning from urgent care and learning I’d need surgery, I begged God for help. “I’m a writer! How will I type? What about my daily duties?” As God sometimes does, He spoke to me from my daily Bible reading. “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” (Isaiah 41:13). I scanned the context, which indicated that God’s people in Judah, to whom Isaiah was communicating His message, enjoyed a special relationship with Him. He promised His presence, strength, and help through His own righteous standing, symbolized by His right hand (v. 10). Elsewhere in Scripture, God’s right hand is used to secure victories for His people (Psalm 17:798:1).

During my weeks of recovery, I experienced encouragement from God as I learned to dictate on my computer and trained my left hand in household and grooming functions. From God’s righteous right hand to our broken and needy right hands, God promises to be with us and to help us.

REFLECT: How do you need God’s help today? How have you experienced His help in the past?

PRAY: Healing God, I need Your help! Please use Your righteous right hand to take hold of my broken, weary hands and help me, I pray.
