Reading: Isaiah 43:1-7; SOAP v1, 4
S: The LORD created Jacob and formed Israel. Now, this is what the LORD says:
Do not be afraid, because I have reclaimed you.
I have called you by name; you are mine.
4 Since you are precious to me, you are honored and I love you.
I will exchange others for you.
Nations will be the price I pay for your life. (GW)
4 Since you were precious in My sight,
You have been honored,
And I have loved you;
Therefore I will give men for you,
And people for your life. (NKJV)
O: The LORD created us and tells us to not be afraid because He has reclaimed us! He calls us by name and are His. He calls us precious, honored and loves us. He will go above and beyond for us – exchanging others for us… stating “I will give men for you, and people for your life.” There is nothing for us to fear!
A: Do not fear for God is with His precious creation that He greatly loves.
P: Father God, thank You for being with us at all times, reclaiming us from this world – from the evil one! Thank You for letting us know there is nothing to fear…
