I read Isaiah 43 today. It’s probably the millionth time I’ve read it, but somehow, Yeshua still spoke to me. How is it that every time I dig into the Word, the Word digs in me. I don’t believe the Bible changes. Yes, translations come and go, but the message, the original words? they are forever.
I’ve been in need of a revival. My heart was starting to go soft towards everything. It was as though I were building on sand. There’s a part that is still on the solid rock, but with earthquakes of life a majority of my life started to fall apart. I still had a part of me built on that firm foundation, but not enough to actually count. A house, even if partially built on a solid foundation, will fall apart if the earth quakes.
Anyways, back to Isaiah. It’s probably one of my favorite books in the Bible. 43:1 states that we are His. He has called us by name! Before we existed, He knew us! Elsewhere in the Bible it says He knit us together in our mother’s womb. In verse 2, he assures us he is always with us! Even in the rocky times when we can’t see around us. Later, God tells us that we are precious and honored in His sight. We aren’t just stable boys or scullery maids, but we are like princes and princesses. We are royalty because we are His! Have you realized this, beloved child of God? You are His! No one else’s, but His!
Why do i forget this? Why do i forget that I am a child of the Most High?
He is doing a new thing in us, dear ones. Let’s not ignore it any longer, but let’s embrace it as He continues His work in us. It’s not gonna be easy, but, beloved Child of God, He is with us.
