Behold My Servant Whom I Uphold
1 Behold my servant, whom I uphold,
my chosen, in whom my soul delights; I have put my Spirit upon him; he will bring forth justice to the nations.
2 He will not cry aloud or lift up his voice, or make it heard in the street;
3 a bruised reed he will not break,
and a faintly burning wick he will not quench; he will faithfully bring forth justice.
4 He will not grow faint or be discouraged till he has established justice in the earth; and the coastlands wait for his law.
5 Thus says God, the LORD,
who created the heavens and stretched them out, who spread out the earth and what comes from it, who gives breath to the people on it and spirit to those who walk in it:
6 “I am the LORD; I have called you in righteousness; I will take you by the hand and keep you; I will give you as a covenant for the people,
a light for the nations,
7 to open the eyes that are blind,
to bring out the prisoners from the dungeon, from the prison those who sit in darkness.
8 I am the LORD; that is my name;
my glory I give to no other,
nor my praise to carved idols.
9 Behold, the former things have come to pass, and new things I now declare; before they spring forth
I tell you of them.”
The central truth of this word was – Behold Jesus – the servant of the LORD whom He upholds! Be served by Him daily. Although being the Son of God, He came as the Servant of God to His people. There is no bruise too broken nor fire too faint that He cannot restore nor rekindle. He is doing a new thing to spring forth in you, so be served by Him to be filled to serve His life to one another.
– *How has the LORD spoken to you today through this?
Holy Spirit Moment
Take a moment to invite the Holy Spirit to fill you, and pray.
Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you. (1 THESSALONIANS 5:16-18)
…do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. (PHILIPPIANS 4:6-7)
