Isaiah 43:4 KJV
“Since thou wast precious in my sight, thou hast been honourable, and I have loved thee: therefore will I give men for thee, and people for thy life.”
Reflections - The assurance of God’s love should not only make us humble but should equally galvanize us into surrendering fully to His purpose and designs. His love gives us a right standing before Him despite our inadequacies. We are precious to Him and He attaches to us the badges of honour.
The opinions of men about you would not matter. The ranking they give you or the placement you are accorded is inconsequential. To God, you are the best, you are special! Life may not judge us fairly and enemies may plot our destruction. The love of God guarantees full redemption. If He could give His only begotten Son for us, there is nothing He would not do to give our lives genuine guarantee. He would sacrifice other lives for us and the burdens of the evil planned for us shall be transferred to others. He is a great and loving Father! We owe Him the lives we live, let us celebrate Him.
1. Lord, clothe me with garments of honour and distinguish me among my peers.
2. Lord, teach me by your Spirit to fully surrender to your purpose and designs.
3. Lord, grant me full redemption and let others bear the burdens of evil planned for me.
