In those days and at that time I will cause a righteous Branch of David to spring forth; and He shall execute justice and righteousness on the earth. In those days Judah will be saved and Jerusalem will dwell in safety; and this is the name by which she will be called: the Lord is our righteousness (Jeremiah 33:14-15).

There are countless verses in Scripture where the Lord makes clear He will carry out His divine intentions upon the earth. No power in heaven and earth will be able to stop Him. Here and now, the redeemed of God may live inside the Lord's determination, thanks to the imputed righteousness given us by our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. One day, and maybe soon, the prophecies of Jeremiah will come to pass. Christ will sit upon the throne of David in Jerusalem and the peace He promised to His people Israel will become a reality. Yet, even today, through the righteousness of Christ, we may live inside God's determination and perfect peace.

Lord, let me abide today under the shelter of the Almighty. Let me claim the promises you made to all your redeemed children. Help me not to live in fear, but in faith. Through Christ our Lord, Amen.
