This week’s memory verse is Isaiah 43:1. It tells us not to fear, because God has redeemed us, and summoned us by name, and we are His.
We have been redeemed. At the cross, Jesus paid the price to save us, and set us free. In Him we have redemption – the forgiveness of all of our sins (Ephesians 1:7). He bought us back at a high cost. Now we can have a relationship with the One who made us!
God has called us by name. He knows who we are. He is familiar with all of our ways (Psalm 139:3). He has numbered the hairs on our heads (Matthew 10:30)! He cares about each of us individually, and He has a plan for each of us. He knows the plans He has for us, and they are for our prosperity, not our harm – to give us a hope and a future (Jeremiah 29:11)!
You are His! Wherever you go, God is with you. If you have received Jesus as your Savior, then He is your Heavenly Father, and you are His child. No mistake that you make, no failure on your part, can change that! None can pluck you out of His hand (John 10:28)!
Fear not. You have been redeemed and summoned by name. You are His!
I got to interview Sam Hancock, lead singer of Luminate, for my website for teens and young adults, generationarise.com. He shared a little bit about the band, what he enjoys about being a part of it, and why they do what they do, as well as what it was like to have their song “Welcome To Daylight” featured in the movie Grace Unplugged!
