This morning God brings His Words from Isaiah 43 to my mind: “But now, this is what the LORD says– He who created you, Jacob, He who formed you, Israel: “Do not fear, for I have redeemed you; I have summoned you by name; you are Mine.”
He gave us more just beyond that verse. More truth to His already true Words. He gave us examples to combat the fears that like to come like a pack of coyotes just outside the firelight at campouts.
“When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; And through the rivers, they will not overflow you. When you walk through the fire, you will not be scorched, Nor will the flame burn you.”
But God, we want to say. But God…what about THIS? What about the bank account, the arguments, the rejection, the doctor’s report, the bills, the holidays, the misunderstandings….?
He goes on to remind us who He is:
“For I am the LORD your God, The Holy One of Israel, your Savior; I have given Egypt as your ransom, Cush and Seba in your place.
And yet again, He reminds us that we have nobody else but Him.
Not the husband, not the best friend, not the pastor, not the children, not the siblings or the parents. Him.
“I, even I, am the LORD, And there is no savior besides Me.”
Lord, thank you for reminding me that You are God and I am yours. ‘Nuff said, Lord. Indeed. I love you Lord and thank you again.”
