Fear not, for I have redeemed you;
I have summoned you by name,
you are mine.
When you pass through the waters, I will be with you;
and when you pass through the rivers,
they will not sweep over you.
When you walk through the fire,
you will not be burned;
the flames will not set you ablaze.
For I am the Lord, your God,
the Holy One of Israel,
your Savior, I give Egypt for your ransom, Cush and Seba in your stead.
Since you are precious and honored in my sight,
and because I love you.
Before me no god was formed, nor will there be one after me.
I, even I, am the Lord,
and apart from me there is no savior.
I have revealed and saved and proclaimed-
I, and not some foreign god among you.
You are my witnesses, declares the Lord,
that I am God.
Yes, and from ancient days I am he.
No one can deliver out of my hand.
When I act, who can reverse it?
I found this letter from my Father last night in Isaiah 43.
Thought I would share it with you.
