Key Verse: Isaiah 49:1 “Listen, O isles, unto me; and hearken, ye people, from far; The Lord hath called me from the womb; from the bowels of my mother hath He made mention of my name.”
I can’t help but cry before God to know that I am so precious, glorious and blessed by Him. Indeed, we belong to the King of kings and Lord of lords and we have everything and there is nothing that God shall withhold from us.
1. You are Precious
V1 “... The Lord hath called me from the womb; from the bowels of my mother hath He made mention of my name.”
God knows my name. Indeed, God knows our names even when we were yet born into this world. God already knows what kind of person we will turn out to be. He knows whether we will receive and acknowledge Him as our personal Savior and Lord. In His eyes, we are precious to Him. How can we not trust God for all our troubles and cares since we are precious in His sight!
2. You are Glorious
V5 “And now, saith the Lord that formed me from the womb to be His servant, to bring Jacob again to Him, Though Israel be not gathered, yet shall I be glorious in the eyes of the Lord, and my God shall be my strength.”
God knows my weaknesses. Indeed, God knows our weaknesses. Though we may fail Him many times yet we are glorious and honoured in His sight. Imagine the Creator and Maker of this universe treats us with glory and honor, it truly humbles us! I am so thankful and grateful to God that in spite of my weaknesses and sins, God is always patient, loving and kind toward me. God never gives up on me. How can I be weak when God is my strength and He shall see me through this life as I totally and completely depend on Him!
3. You are Blessed
V10 “They shall not hunger nor thirst; neither shall the heat nor sun smite them: for He that hath mercy on them shall lead them, even by the springs of water shall He guide them.”
God knows my needs. Indeed, God knows my needs. God created and made me in His image. The Creator knows His creatures and what needs the creatures have. How can I not trust God for all my needs when God shall lead, guide and blessed me all the days of my life!
Prayer of the Week
God, thank You so much that I am Precious, Glorious and Blessed by Thee.
