But now thus saith the LORD that created thee, O Jacob, and he that formed thee, O Israel, Fear not: for I have redeemed thee, I have called thee by thy name; thou art mine.
Isaiah 43:1 (KJV)
God has redeemed us and He calls each of us His own. We are now called to walk boldly as who God says we are in Christ: blessed and victorious children of the Most High God! When things come against us, let us remember that the victory has already been won and, as a result, we can be expectant for God to move in our lives in powerful ways.
