“You are my servant, I have chosen you and have not rejected you. So do not fear for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.” (Isaiah 41:9-10)
This verse is dear to my heart and such a great reminder that, we are chosen! God chose each one of us to be HIS and HIS alone! I have tears in my eyes as I think of the times I felt rejected or not good enough to be a wife or mother or friend. This sense of rejection makes it hard to live up to God’s potential because I feel weak. But as the next verse says, “He will strengthen you and help you.” (Isaiah 41:10) This part of the verse gives me hope and courage that I am not alone that He will strengthen me and not leave. I desperately need His strength and help each day. Can I get a witness?
We as followers of Christ can do this life alone but through HIM we can be His chosen servants and not give up and resist rejection. Through talking to God, I felt Him saying, “You are accepted and chosen!” I don’t have to feel that sense of rejection and listen to what the world thinks I should be. God designed me to be the mother of these four miracles I have and to be the wife to my wonderful husband. I don’t have to prove anything but let go and let God into my circumstances and allow Him to help me through all things. I feel at times God grabs my chin and looks me in the eyes to tell me how He loves me just like I do to my own children.
We as adults need to hear how much we are loved by our heavenly father just as our children do. God chose us and nobody else to be the person He has made us to be. I love the last part of the verse saying, “He will uphold us with His righteous hand.” His hand will not let go of our lives. That is so comforting and gives us a peace that we can’t explain.
