Welcome to His Encouragement. I have joined with some blogging friends to bring you a new Bible verse every Thursday, and a little discussion of hope and encouragement. We welcome you to join the conversation by adding your daily verse of encouragement as well.
I pray that these Thursday posts become an encouragement to you and help you end your week strong in God’s love and purpose for you. God bless.
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.
When you pass through the waters, I will
be with you; and through the rivers, they
shall not overflow you. When you walk
through the fire, you shall not be burned,
nor shall the flame scorch you.
For I am the Lord your God, The Holy One
of Israel, your Savior; I gave Egypt for your
ransom, Ethiopia and Seba in your place.
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.
Fear not, for I am with you;
I will bring your descendants from the east,
and gather you from the west;
Isaiah 43: 1-5 (NKJV)
God knew that we needed to be rescued, and dear friend He sent his one and only Son to rescue us. Jesus rescued us, when He died on the cross for our sins. He will continue to rescue us as we pass through the trials of life. He will not leave us! Call on His name and rest in Him. God also uses people in our lives to encourage us through the tough times. He uses your voice, and my voice. He uses your hands and my hands. And once you have been rescued, you can never stand by idle while others drown. God wants to use you, but first He wants to rescue you.
One day soon Jesus will come back in clouds of glory to bring us home to live with Him forever! I eagerly anticipate that wondrous day!
Now it is your turn!
