ESV — Daily Light on the Daily Path: Day 100
100
Morning
Isa. 43:1; Isa. 54:4, 5; Isa. 44:22; 1 Pet. 1:19; Jer. 50:34; John 10:29; Gal. 1:3-5

“Fear not, for I have redeemed you.”

“Fear not, for you will not be ashamed; be not confounded, for you will not be disgraced; for you will forget the shame of your youth, and the reproach of your widowhood you will remember no more. For your Maker is your husband, the Lord of hosts is his name; and the Holy One of Israel is your Redeemer.”—I have blotted out your transgressions like a cloud and your sins like mist; return to me, for I have redeemed you.—But with the precious blood of Christ, like that of a lamb without blemish or spot.

“Their Redeemer is strong; the Lord of hosts is his name. He will surely plead their cause.”—“My Father, who has given them to me, is greater than all, and no one is able to snatch them out of the Father's hand.”

Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ, who gave himself for our sins to deliver us from the present evil age, according to the will of our God and Father, to whom be the glory forever and ever. Amen.

Evening
Isa. 63:7; Ps. 40:2; Gal. 2:20; Rom. 8:32; Rom. 5:8; 2 Cor. 1:22; Eph. 1:14; Eph. 2:4-6

I will recount the steadfast love of the Lord, the praises of the Lord, according to all that the Lord has granted us.

He drew me up from the pit of destruction, out of the miry bog, and set my feet upon a rock, making my steps secure.—The Son of God… loved me and gave himself for me.—He who did not spare his own Son but gave him up for us all, how will he not also with him graciously give us all things?—But God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.

Who has also put his seal on us and given us his Spirit in our hearts as a guarantee.—Who is the guarantee of our inheritance until we acquire possession of it, to the praise of his glory.

But God, being rich in mercy, because of the great love with which he loved us, even when we were dead in our trespasses, made us alive together with Christ—by grace you have been saved—and raised us up with him and seated us with him in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus.

Israel's Only Savior

43  But now thus says the Lord,

mhe who created you, O Jacob,

he who formed you, O Israel:

n“Fear not, for I have redeemed you;

oI have called you by name, you are mine.


“Fear not, mfor you will not be ashamed;

be not confounded, for you will not be disgraced;

for you will forget the shame of your youth,

and the reproach of your widowhood you will remember no more.


nFor your Maker is your husband,

the Lord of hosts is his name;

oand the Holy One of Israel is your Redeemer,

pthe God of the whole earth he is called.


22  aI have blotted out your transgressions like a cloud

and your sins like mist;

return to me, for I have redeemed you.


19 but twith the precious blood of Christ, like that of ua lamb vwithout blemish or spot.


34 tTheir Redeemer is strong; uthe Lord of hosts is his name. vHe will surely plead their cause, that he may give rest to the earth, but unrest to the inhabitants of Babylon.


29 My Father, rwho has given them to me,1 sis greater than all, and no one is able to snatch them out of tthe Father's hand.

The Lord's Mercy Remembered

I will recount the steadfast love of the Lord,

the praises of the Lord,

according to all that the Lord has granted us,

uand the great goodness to the house of Israel

that he has granted them according to his compassion,

according to the abundance of his steadfast love.


He drew me up from wthe pit of destruction,

out of xthe miry bog,

and yset my feet upon a rock,

zmaking my steps secure.


20 I have been tcrucified with Christ. It is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives uin me. And the life I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, vwho loved me and wgave himself for me.


32 qHe who did not spare his own Son but rgave him up for us all, how will he not also with him graciously give us all things?


but lGod shows his love for us in that mwhile we were still sinners, Christ died for us.


22 and who has also oput his seal on us and pgiven us his Spirit in our hearts as a guarantee.1
