you are mineBut 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. Isaiah 43:1 NIV

Do not fear! I tell you this often for you to easily forget the magnitude of My presence. I don’t mind reminding you, for there are so many cares of the world weighing you down. You are My Child and are perfectly fitted for My Shalom (Peace) to rest upon you. Receive My Shalom today, right now.

I created and formed you in your mother’s womb. In the formation of a soul, there are no mistakes. Your timing and arrival were planned long before your conception. Before your present crisis, I was already fully engaged in the details of your life.

Though you stray wayward to your own standards and rejections of Me, I still pursue you. At your most unlovable moment, I redeemed you with the blood of My Son, Jesus. It cost Him – His life. You were worth the trade.

When the winds of life, waves of the storm, and the darkness of the hour have pulmetted you into confusion; when you have lost your bearings, and started to drift; when your coasting through life is taking you down uncertain paths; when your fear of what tomorrow may bring takes away your sleep; when you are feeling the impact of the fruit of sinful choices…I am tenderly calling you by name to turn and look at Me.

Those whom I have redeemed, I will never leave stranded to fend for themselves. Don’t think I want you to just stand at a distance. I want to walk and talk with you. As I listen to your fears and worry, may you learn to hear the rhythm of My heart of love. I am that close to you.

Do not fear! I created you, redeemed you and call you by name, for you are Mine.

Whispers from Your Father, God
