The Lord says, "I have called you by name, you are mine." Isaiah 43:1
The Lord knows my name. I am HIS. It is an amazing feeling to belong to something greater, to be loved by someone greater. And there is more.
"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."
I have been overwhelmed. I feel like I am drowning. I don't know what events in my life are the most important, what requires the majority of my focus, what is a priority. As a result, I am flailing about, my energy is wasted, nothing of importance is accomplished. I am not going to be poisoned. I am a the LORDS. He will not overwhelm me. He knows my limits. With my faith in Him, I will not drown. The God of the universe knows my name, and He claims me as His own. I find great encouragement in that fact. I pray with each struggle I face, I will remember this scripture and it will help carry me through.
