What does the Great Commission have to do with mobile devices? More than you might think.
You have not started any reading plans.
break forth into singing and cry aloud,
you who have not been in travail!
For the children of the desolate one will be more
than the children of her that is married, says the Lord.
and let the curtains of your habitations be stretched out;
hold not back, lengthen your cords
and strengthen your stakes.
and your descendants will possess the nations
and will people the desolate cities.
be not confounded, for you will not be put to shame;
for you will forget the shame of your youth,
and the reproach of your widowhood you will remember no more.
the Lord of hosts is his name;
and the Holy One of Israel is your Redeemer,
the God of the whole earth he is called.
like a wife forsaken and grieved in spirit,
like a wife of youth when she is cast off,
says your God.
but with great compassion I will gather you.
I hid my face from you,
but with everlasting love I will have compassion on you,
says the Lord, your Redeemer.
as I swore that the waters of Noah
should no more go over the earth,
so I have sworn that I will not be angry with you
and will not rebuke you.
and the hills be removed,
but my steadfast love shall not depart from you,
and my covenant of peace shall not be removed,
says the Lord, who has compassion on you.
behold, I will set your stones in antimony,
and lay your foundations with sapphires.*
your gates of carbuncles,
and all your wall of precious stones.
and great shall be the prosperity of your sons.
you shall be far from oppression, for you shall not fear;
and from terror, for it shall not come near you.
it is not from me;
whoever stirs up strife with you
shall fall because of you.
who blows the fire of coals,
and produces a weapon for its purpose.
I have also created the ravager to destroy;
and you shall confute every tongue that rises against you in judgment.
This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord
and their vindication from me, says the Lord.”
