When we receive salvation by grace, we are adopted into God’s family, everyone who is called by my name, whom I have created for my glory, whom I formed and made. (Isaiah 43:7) We were born to know Him and be with Him. It’s not an idea that seems like it would work, it’s a plan that He has had from before the worlds were created.
It’s amazing to think that we live and breath because God loves us so much. It’s a love that we really don’t understand. Jesus came in the flesh to die as our sacrifice for sin because He loves. He loves! And He knows each of us intimately. We shouldn’t be freaked out by the fact that He knows our secret sins. He loves us! He’s waiting for us to turn to Him so He can work out the problems we have to deal with.
I have called you by name, you are mine. (Isaiah 43:1) Can there be anything more amazing and fantastic than knowing that God is calling you by your name? You are known and loved in heaven. You can press into that and find a loving God who’s been waiting for you since forever. It’s your move now.
