"BUT NOW THUS SAITH THE LORD, THAT CREATED THEE, O JACOB,
AND HE THAT FORMED THEE, O ISRAEL, FEAR NOT: FOR I HAVE REDEEMED THEE,
I HAVE CALLED THEE BY THY NAME; THOU ART MINE."
~ ISAIAH 43:1
This chapter in the book of Isaiah is filled with wonderful verses telling us how God feels towards those who are saved. It has time and time again, been one of the chapters that I turn to when I find myself in troubling situations. This chapter is a treasure chest filled with gems that sparkle with God's great love for us! Allow me to give you some of the assuring words from this chapter to aid you today as you face your troubles and cares of life:
"I have redeeemed thee"
"I have called thee by name"
"Thou art mine"
"I will be with thee"
"Thou wast precious in my sight"
"Fear not; for I am with thee"
"Ye are witnesses"
"I, even I, am the Lord; and beside me there is no Savior"
"There is none that can deliver out of my hand"
"I am the Lord, your Holy One, the Creator"
"I will make a way in the wilderness, and rivers in the desert"
We have a wonderful God! One that you can trust in as you pray. Learn to rely upon His precious Word, the Bible. Make sure you are in the church services so you can join others who can join with you in praise and worship. Never forget that in a world of billions of people, you are special to Him. Remember the words in the first verse of this chapter, "Thou are MINE!"
