Sometimes we think that the desire of God for our salvation started shortly before the coming of Jesus into the world. Nothing could be further from the truth. From the beginning of time God was eagerly awaiting the day that he would send his Son into the world to bring us back to communion with Him. Evidence of this desire is set forth in today’s psalm passage.
Let this be written for the generation to come,
and let his future creatures praise the LORD:
“The LORD looked down from his holy height,
from heaven he beheld the earth,
To hear the groaning of the prisoners,
to release those doomed to die.”
Thank you Father, for your faithful love!
