Everyone Who Bears His Name

But now this is what Adonai says, he who created you, Ya‘akov, he who formed you, Isra’el: “Don’t be afraid, for I have redeemed you; I am calling you by your name; you are mine.  When you pass through water, I will be with you; when you pass through rivers, they will not overwhelm you; when you walk through fire, you will not be scorched — the flame will not burn you.   For I am Adonai, your God, the Holy One of Isra’el, your Savior — I have given Egypt as your ransom, Ethiopia and S’va for you.  Because I regard you as valued and honored, and because I love you. For you I will give people, nations in exchange for your life.  Don’t be afraid, for I am with you.  I will bring your descendants from the east, and I will gather you from the west;  I will say to the north, ‘Give them up!’ and to the south, ‘Don’t hold them back! Bring my sons from far away, and my daughters from the ends of the earth, everyone who bears my name, whom I created for my glory — I formed him, yes, I made him.'”  ~~ Isaiah 43: 1-7

Yeshua’s Shalom

Ahhh….I love these words from our Messiah Yeshua…

What I am leaving with you is shalom — I am giving you my shalom. I don’t give the way the world gives. Don’t let yourselves be upset or frightened.  ~~ John 14:27

Be Satisfied

Keep your lives free from the love of money; and be satisfied with what you have; for God himself has said, “I will never fail you or abandon you.”  Therefore, we say with confidence, “Adonai is my helper; I will not be afraid — what can a human being do to me?”  ~~ Hebrews 13: 5-6

Spirit of Slavery

All who are led by God’s Spirit are God’s sons.   For you did not receive a spirit of slavery to bring you back again into fear; on the contrary, you received the Spirit, who makes us sons and by whose power we cry out, “Abba!” (that is, “Dear Father!”).  The Spirit himself bears witness with our own spirits that we are children of God; and if we are children, then we are also heirs, heirs of God and joint-heirs with the Messiah — provided we are suffering with him in order also to be glorified with him.  ~~ Romans 8: 14-17
