God’s message, the God who made you in the first place, Jacob, the One who got you started, Israel: “Don’t be afraid, I’ve redeemed you. I’ve called you by name. You are mine. When you’re in over your head, I’ll be there with you. When you’re in rough waters, you will not go down. When you’re between a rock and hard place, it won’t be a dead end - because I am God, your personal God, The Holy of Israel, your Savior. I paid a huge price for you: all of Egypt, with rich Cush and Seba thrown in! That’s how much you mean to me! That’s how much I love you! I’d sell off the whole world to get you back, trade the creation just for you. Isaiah 43:1-4 MSG
With tear's streaming down my face, I told my husband I couldn’t find a ring that was passed down to me from his grandmother shortly after we married. It was gone. My heart clenched in longing. I’d give anything to have it in my possession again.
God longs for us to be His with this same aching desire. We are precious to Him, and He would trade the world for us - in fact, He gave His one and only Son so that we may live. The worst crucifixion in history became the greatest salvation for today!
Father of all things great and small, You bought me at the highest price - the life of your Son given for me. I belong to you - I’m Yours! Thank you. Amen
