Every human being longs for unfailing love. Lavish love. Focused love. Radical love. Love we can count on.
Lord, I believe that Your feelings toward me are consistent with Your feelings toward Your people, Israel, for You are the same yesterday, today, and forever. Therefore I believe You bless the praying of Your words to Israel as words over my own life too.
This is what You say—You who created me, who formed me: “Fear not, for I have redeemed you; I have summoned you by name; you are mine. When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and when you pass through the rivers, they will not sweep over you. When you walk through the fire, you will not be burned; the flames will not set you ablaze. For I am the Lord, your God, the Holy One of Israel, your Savior” (Isa. 43:1-4).
