Do not be afraid, my child, I have ransomed you. I have called you by name. I have given you my love. I gave my life as full payment for your peace. When your life overwhelms you, I am with you. I have overcome all that overwhelms you. When you go through raging waters, you will not drown. When you walk through the fire of oppression, you will not burn up. Your illness—your problem—your fear—your struggle will not consume you. I am the Lord, your God. I am Jesus, your Savior. I died as a ransom for your freedom. (Isaiah 43:1-3).
Know. Understand. I am your Creator. I never grow weak or weary. I give power to the weak and strength to the powerless. Even the young become weak and tired. Even the young fail when they try in their own strength. But when you trust in me, you find new strength. You soar like an eagle above the things that try to consume you. You run and do not grow weary. You walk and do not faint. (Isaiah 40:28-31).
Believe my message. I have revealed my power to you (Isaiah 53:1). I have given myself to you in my Son, Jesus. There is nothing more I can do. My love for you is complete. You are redeemed and called by my name. I chose you as mine. Choose me.
