TODAY’S SOUL-LIFTING SCRIPTURE.
Friday, November 26, 2021.
New Living Translation:
“The Lord who made you and helps you says: Do not be afraid, O Jacob, my servant, O dear Israel, my chosen one.”
New English Translation:
“This is what the Lord, the one who made you, says – the one who formed you in the womb and helps you: “Don’t be afraid, my servant Jacob, Jeshurun, whom I have chosen!”
Contemporary English Version:
“I am your Creator. You were in my care even before you were born. Israel, don't be terrified! You are my chosen servant, my very favorite.”
Good News Translation:
“I am the Lord who created you; from the time you were born, I have helped you. Do not be afraid; you are my servant, my chosen people whom I love.”
Beloved, you are favored of the Lord, He chose you even before you were born. You want to think of God’s mysterious way of how you grew in the womb, till you were formed and delivered to this world?. He made, created and placed you on this part of eternity to fulfill purpose. He treated and chose you from the beginning of His own mercy, and before you could merit anything, so He did not bring you this far to abandon or neglect you, He will help you and that early. You may not be in an ideal situation, but you have an ideal God.
That doesn't mean that you will not have problems, but it means that your problems will not have you. Whatever unpleasant situation you go through today does not have to determine your tomorrow. God has a good plan for your life, ready and available to help you, turn to Him.
