Isaiah 43:1 Do Not Fear #135

I’ll be honest, I usually skip over Isaiah 43:1 and go straight to verse Isaiah 43:2, which has helped me so much in this season of waiting. But, Isaiah 43:1 is so powerful. It says, “Now, this is what the LORD says, the one who created you, O Jacob, and formed you, O Israel: “Don’t be afraid, for I will protect you. I call you by name, you are mine.”

This is a direct word from the Lord. He is the one who created you and he is speaking this verse to you and about you. He has declared to you that you have nothing to be afraid of because he will protect you. He has given you this promise to cling to. God doesn’t want you to focus on the overwhelming situation in front of you, but he wants you to focus on him as the amazing and miraculous heavenly father that he is. 

God calls you by name and he has declared that you are his. Several translations of this verse say, “I have redeemed you.” God didn’t pay the price for redemption for you to live in fear or bondage. He redeemed you to protect you and make you his.

There is nothing that will ever stop God from calling you by name. He will protect you. He will redeem you. He will forgive you. He will heal you. He will carry you though. Live the abundant life that he desires you to live: one without fear and without bondage. Rest in the fact that you are 100% a child of the King.

    Isaiah is one of my favorite books of the bible. I have “Isaiah 57:1” tattooed in a banner on my foot for my grandfather. I have yet to find a verse from Isaiah that hasn’t resonated with me in some way.

    yes God is bigger the verse “whom then shall I fear if God is for us who can be against us.” comes to my mind as well when I read this.

    Oh my gosh, what perfect timing! I struggle so much with fear, especially today. I need to remember that no matter what the devil says, I belong to God forever and always.

    If God’s going to protect us that means he is going to call us somewhere we might not want to go. But if He is leading I will go!

    I love this! I can be so fearful of different things at times but this verse is one of my favorites and it is so comforting.

    Oh wow Caroline! So here’s the thing with this. I have never really dwelled on this scripture. About two months ago, I had a really rough day. I was full of anxiety about the state of my province, my country, and the world. I felt completely numb with fear. That same day, I checked the mailbox and discovered three prints I had order about 6 weeks prior. One was a quote on hope, the other was about grace, and the last one was one I had forgotten I had ordered… Isaiah 43: 1-2. It’s become one of my cornerstone scriptures when I get an anxiety attack and it’s hanging above my desk right now as I type this.

    Thanks for sharing. God is so good and always blesses me when I come to your space!
    xoxo

    Fear is a liar. A manipulative, charismatic liar. Indeed The Lord is our protector and defender of all.
