When we consider the greatness of God in our lives, we can see that our identity is based upon who God
is and how he relates to each of us. So, does God care for us personally?
I remember a song written several years ago:
I have a maker
He formed my heart
Before even time began
My life was in his hand
He knows my name
He knows my every thought
He sees each tear that falls
And hears me when I call…
Isaiah was inspired to write of God’s promises to us.
“Fear not, for I have redeemed you…” Isaiah 43:1
Fear not, for I am with you;
be not dismayed, for I am your God;
I will strengthen you, I will help you,
I will uphold you with my righteous right hand. Isaiah 41:10
Have you ever been afraid? of the dark? losing someone close to you? Afraid of circumstances?
Throughout the Scriptures God encourages us to not fear what may be coming next. Why?
He has redeemed us.
He is our God.
He will give us strength and He will help us.
When we recognize God has a personal interest in us, it should give us at attitude of confidence and hope.
