‘Now this is what the Lord says — the One who created you, Jacob, and the One who formed you, Israel — “Do not fear, for I have redeemed you; I have called you by your name; you are Mine.’ (Isaiah 43:1 HCSB)
There is no way around it. We must come face to face with truth and with the fears that scare us most -whether we want to or not. For many it is easier to grow more and more tangled up in the web of bitterness and keep lashing out lies and hurt at others than it is to wrestle through our fears.
Once the source of fear is known we are no longer bumbling along, fishing for fantasies. We are made wise. And, we take on a new birth into deeper relationship…with God Most High, and with others.
Knowing Who we belong to is the beginning of real life and real relationship. Without that we barely ever scratch the surface of our passion.
Do you know the One that calls you Mine? Are you listening when He calls you by name? What are you doing with that?
