Today’s reading: Isaiah 43:1
You are mine
We read in Isaiah 43:1:
1 But now, thus says the LORD, who created you, O Jacob,
And He who formed you, O Israel:
“Fear not, for I have redeemed you;
I have called you by your name;
You are Mine.
As spiritual Israel, we are called by God’s name. What’s astonishing about all of these is the statement, “You are Mine.”
Yahweh gave us three reasons why we are His. First, He created us. Second, He formed us. Third, He redeemed us.
Because of these reasons, we rightly belonged to God. His calling was even more personal than ever. He didn’t call us by our profession. He didn’t call us by our role. He didn’t call us as a group.
He called us by our name — an intimate and personal action indicating how God knew us very well.
Because of all these, we are called “mine” by God.
Now, these are sweet words we hear from our Father. Because we are God’s, we can surrender our lives to Him. All that we are, all that we have, we can all give to the Father.
God doesn’t treat us as a mere possession. He doesn’t simply look at us as disposable properties.
We are called to be His children and as children, we don’t just have a special relationship with God, but we also have the unique privilege to be His sons and daughters.
So, no matter what you are going through right now, don’t forget who you belong to.
You are not on your own anymore. You belong to God and because of that, God cares for you. He loves you. He has sacrificed His Son for you and me. That’s what it means for God to say to us, “You are Mine.”
