To God’s servant, those whom He has chosen, there is no other assurance needed! God is near, watching, guiding , protecting.
When we yield in obedience to God’s will for our lives and allow Him to use us to impact the world for His glory, there is no doubt that He will be with us. As those dearly loved because we have chosen Christ, we share special relationship with The Most High. Though we are unworthy and even sinful, He has called and chosen us! He used His own son, Jesus Christ, to make us His own!
Opposition in this world is sure!! But, Almighty God will vindicate.
It is our duty to follow wholly, obey completely … devote ourselves to His purpose AND trust Him with our safety, provision, and protection.
I’m praying that Our Father will help us to move past hurts and disappointments, because dwelling on those things causes us to fear! Our Father is worthy of our trust! He is a faithful master who loves us!
Father, I put my fears on You, asking You to slay them. I place my disappointments on You, asking You to show Yourself strong. I lay myself on You, asking You to protect me from our enemy and those He uses to distract and destroy. Place Your Word in my heart, so that I may trust in Your name completely!
The Lord says, “You, Israel, are my servant. Jacob, I chose you. You are from the family of my friend, Abraham. You were in a faraway country, but I reached out to you. I called you from that faraway place. I said, ‘You are my servant.’ I chose you, and I have not rejected you. Don’t worry—I am with you. Don’t be afraid—I am your God. I will make you strong and help you. I will support you with my right hand that brings victory. Look, some people are angry with you, but they will be ashamed and disgraced. Your enemies will be lost and disappear. You will look for the people who were against you, but you will not be able to find them. Those who fought against you will disappear completely. Isaiah 41:8-12
