My acceptance of God’s daily provision: spiritually, emotionally, physically, materially will fill me with contentment.
“LORD, you have assigned me my portion and my cup; you have made my lot secure.” (Psalms 16:5 NIV)
When I let go and allow Him to have His way, I have peace.
“And God’s peace [shall be yours, that tranquil state of soul assured of its salvation through Christ, and so fearing nothing from God and being content with its earthly lot of whatever sort that is, that peace] which transcends all understanding shall garrison and mount guard over your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus. (Phillippians 4:7 AMP)
“Do not be afraid, for I have ransomed you, I have called you by name; you are mine.” Isaiah 43:1 NLT,
What an incredible thought that God calls me by name…and He calls me His very own. As if on the bottom of my foot says, “Jesus,” (instead of “Andy” from Toy Story). Ransom is the act of freeing someone from captivity or punishment with payment, it involves an exchange. Jesus for me. Did God know what He was getting Himself into?
I am named. I am called. I am purchased. I am His.
…I will trust Him.
