Son, have I redeemed you? Then speak out! Tell everyone that I have redeemed you! For there is no other God- there never has been, and there never will be. I have swept away your sins like a cloud. I have scattered your offenses like the morning mist. Remember that no one can snatch you out of My hand. No one can undo what I have done. I alone-will blot out your sins, and will never think of them again.
When you feel that all hope is gone – take courage and believe in Me. When you go through deep waters, I will be with you because you are precious to Me. You are honored by Me and I love you. You have been chosen to know Me, believe in Me – that I alone am God; your God. Therefore, do not be afraid; for I have proclaimed My purpose for you long ago.
When you cry, “LORD, help!” I will save you from your distress, and I will lead you. When My children understand this they will have great joy. Those who are wise will take all this to heart; they will look back and see My faithful love through it all.
Those who refuse My salvation have burdened Me with their sins. Who but a fool would make his own god- that cannot help him one bit? Such stupidity and ignorance! Their eyes are closed, and they cannot see. Their minds are shut, and they cannot think. Oh, that these people would turn to Me, for I have paid the price to set them free.
Lord, my heart is confident in You. All human help is useless. Only with Your help can I persevere and do mighty things.
