“But now, this is what the Lord, your Creator says, O Jacob, And He who formed you, O Israel, “Do not fear, for I have redeemed you [ransomed you by paying a price for you instead of leaving you captive; I have called you by name; you are Mine! “ – Isaiah 43:1
The love of God will never fail you. The love of God will not let you go. The love of God is strong enough, perfect enough, and powerful enough to cover you, fill you and wrap you in the knowledge of his faithfulness towards you.
The promise of Jesus Christ is the promise of God’s love for you; it is the promise that God declares you are MINE!
God’s promise to you is bigger than all your sin, it is deeper that all your rebellion and stronger than all your unbelief. It transcends every lie that would invade your mind and assails every stronghold that would captivate your thoughts.
You cannot get away from the love of God, but you can hide from its beauty.
The promise of Christ Jesus is the promise of redemption, freedom from slavery, deliverance, protection and the presence of the living God.
Jesus calls us out of brokenness, bondage and oppression; he picks us up from the gutter of sin and death and puts us on the father’s lap in heaven. He holds us in his tight embrace and whispers his affirmation of peace and acceptance into our hearts. His life kindles the flame of life within our innermost being.
In Christ Jesus you no longer have to go through life afraid of death, afraid of punishment, afraid of rejection, afraid of sickness, afraid of disaster because his love saves us, holds us, keeps us and declares to us, “That you are mine!”
