Isa 43:1-4 ...Do not be afraid, for I have ransomed you. I have called you by name; you are Mine. 2 When you go through deep waters, I will be with you. When you go through rivers of difficulty, you will not drown. When you walk through the fire of oppression, you will not be burned up; the flames will not consume you. 3 For I am the LORD, your God, the Holy One of Israel, your Savior. I gave Egypt as a ransom for your freedom; I gave Ethiopia and Seba in your place. 4 Others were given in exchange for you. I traded their lives for yours because you are precious to Me. You are honored, and I Love you.
I would ask that you all spend some time thinking about just how much you are Loved by God. I know when times are difficult we may not understand a great many things. In those times think of this, “You are honored, and I Love you!” There is real Power and pure Truth in these words. The Father honors and Loves us. In verse 2 we see, He will be with us no matter what is going on around us. We are able to put our Trust in Him. We all face things that seem to test these words. Once more in those times remember, “You are honored, and I love you!” We have the sacrifice Jesus and God made when Jesus walked, lived, crucified, died, and rose again. Think on these thoughts when few if anything makes sense. True enough we cannot really understand or feel just how much we are Loved by God. We are only able to “try” and put ourselves in His place. But, I ask you to meditate on these thoughts. “You are honored, and I love you,” Rom 8:34 Who then will condemn us? No one--for Christ Jesus died for us and was raised to life for us, and he is sitting in the place of honor at God's right hand, pleading for us. 1John 3:1 See how very much our Father loves us, for he calls us his children, and that is what we are! But the people who belong to this world don't recognize that we are God's children because they don't know him. We all know the list goes on and on. Phil 4:8 8 And now, dear brothers and sisters, one final thing. Fix your thoughts on what is true, and honorable, and right, and pure, and lovely, and admirable. Think about things that are excellent and worthy of praise. In verse 6,7, and 9 they tell us not to worry, but to tell God what we need, thank Him for all He does for us and His Peace will be ours. The more time we spend like this, the more time we allow our thoughts to be consumed in His Love. The stronger in Him we do become. When all the enemy wants to do is to get your mind off these thoughts. When you are constantly thinking about, “Past Due” or what you do not have. The opportunity for Faith to work gets more and more difficult. I know all these things take place in our life. Yet, to spend our time thinking about His Love for us. Allows Faith to take root far easier. To know and understand you are Loved by God, allows for us to be who we are. Yet, still encourages us to strive to be the very best we can be for Him.
