When you have come to the land Adonai your God is giving you as your inheritance, taken possession of it and settled there…
(Deuteronomy 26:16 CJB)
• Isaiah 60:1-22
New Testament Reading
• Luke 24:44-53
• Psalm 51
Adonai, open my lips;
then my mouth will praise you.
For you don’t want sacrifices, or I would give them;
you don’t take pleasure in burnt offerings.
My sacrifice to God is a broken spirit;
God, you won’t spurn a broken, chastened heart.
(Psalm 51:17-19 CJB)

Appropriating a glorious inheritance is no easy calling for a people characterized by low self-esteem. How can one overcome his self-imposed beliefs that “something must go wrong” or “I’m unworthy to be exalted over another!” Of course, on one is worthy to be exalted! …Why not boast that God exalts those who follow Him and glory in His righteousness (Psalm 89:16-17)?
