I will not be thrown away
I am chosen and will not be thrown away!
"I have called you back from the ends of the earth so you can serve me. For I have chosen you and will not throw you away. Don't be afraid, for I am with you. Do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you. I will help you. I will uphold you with my victorious right hand." Isaiah 41:9-10
Right now, at this very moment and season in my life, to read "For I have chosen you and will not throw you away." Hallelujah! This makes me want to shed tears of joy and get up and dance.
These words were spoken by a loving God to the nation of Israel. We all know by what Bible teaches us, Israel was not a perfect nation at all! They were as imperfect as imperfect can get. From disobedience, to idolatry, to turning their backs on God, etc., etc. So many times in my life even recently I have felt like I deserved to be thrown away, that I'm not worth it, not getting anything right. These types of thoughts and feelings give birth to fear, a fear of making mistakes, disappointing people, not being that person every one expects me to be. Later on to find out no one expected me to be anything more than who I am; and in fact, it was the enemy who led me to believe these lies, but I usually figure this out after I have made reactionary and defensive decisions ending in disaster and hurt. Wow! Nothing like a scenario like this to want to throw myself away. No one come near me, I make mistakes!
Praise be to God! He isn't going to throw me away, I am chosen! I'm not perfect, but there is nothing in the Bible that demands perfection, just trust in Him, in Jesus who is perfection for me and you.
So I have no reason to fear for God is with me, God will strengthen me, God will help me, God will uphold me with His victorious right hand.
So you do not have a reason to fear, God is with you, He will strengthen you, He will help you, He will uphold you with His victorious right hand.
