There are other moments in life that give you soul scars.
Moments that become memories that hide in the silence and shadows of your heart.
They feed into the fears of “not worthy” and enable the core insecurities of “not enough”.
God’s Word brings light to the shadows and His voice to the silent places in your heart.
Jesus came to bring to completion the Word spoken in Isaiah:
“For I have chosen you and will not throw you away. Don’t be afraid, for I am with you. Don’t be discouraged, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you. I will hold you up with my victorious right hand.”
Isaiah 41:9,10 NLT
Jesus came to complete it,
to reclaim you,
to reconcile you to God,
has chosen you,
paid for you,
will not abandon you.
Whispers of rejection will remind you of past rejections. They will taint every relationship and interaction you have.
You may fear rejection but Jesus came to empty the word of its crippling power.
He is the God who says to you:
“I have chosen you and have not rejected you.” (NIV)
“I’ve picked you. I haven’t dropped you. Don’t panic. I’m with you.” (MSG)
“You are My servant, I have chosen you and have not cast you away: Fear not, for I am with you;” (NKJV)
Jesus will whisper this truth to you every day, in every way He can until you will believe it, embrace it and live in it.
YOU ARE HIS.
YOU ARE CHOSEN.
Sorry for yelling at you but you haven’t been listening.
Listen and believe.
Reread if necessary.
