Isaiah 41: 8 But you, Israel, my servant,
Jacob, whom I have chosen,
the offspring of Abraham, my friend;
9 you whom I took from the ends of the earth,
and called from its farthest corners,
saying to you, “You are my servant,
I have chosen you and not cast you off”;
10 fear not, for I am with you;
be not dismayed, for I am your God;
I will strengthen you, I will help you,
I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.
LORD Messiah Jesus, YOU have chosen us as servants and more than servants, as friends. We did not chose YOU but YOU have chosen us. YOU have chosen me. I am a child of Abraham.
Good Shepherd, YOU will not cast me away, lose me, or allow me to be forever lost because I stray. YOU will find me and bring me home. YOU are the Good Shepherd and have given YOUR life for YOUR sheep. YOU have given YOUR life for me.
Let me release my fear. Take my fear from me. My fear is that I do not know the future and am anxious that pain, sorrow, defeat, and difficulty are awaiting me in the future ahead. YOU do not tell me that I may not face all those things but that I will not face them without YOU.
Soul do not be depressed, for THE LORD will be with us. LORD, YOU will be with me. YOU are the ultimate and infinite ruler of my life. YOU will give me energy, power, and help to get through every difficult time. When I cannot stand, YOU will hold me up. YOU will work all things out for good.
LORD of heaven and earth. NOW come and revive, renew, and restore my soul. Draw near to me and help me to draw near to YOU. Help me trust in YOUR promises this day and give me a fresh vision of YOUR plan and purpose.
Lord have mercy, Messiah have mercy, LORD have mercy. Amen
