Scripture: Isaiah 43:4 Others were given in exchange for you. I traded their lives for yours because you are precious to me. You are honored, and I love you. (NLT)
Nugget: Do we think about those who came before us? Our grandparents, parents, loved ones, & even those in the Bible days who gave their lives for us. So many people came before us & gave their lives for something bigger than we can imagine. Most of these same individuals prayed for us, taught us about God, Jesus, & the love that comes from them.
Not only are we precious to those who came before us, but we’re so precious to God. No one loves us like He does---He gave His son for us!! Don’t ever think you’re not worth it!! The love that exists for us goes back generations & continues to this day. What an everlasting love we have!
Quote: “Be encouraged, child of God. He loves you even in the midst of your pain. He loves you even when you don't love Him. He loves you when you feel utterly alone. He loves you with an everlasting love. Your suffering can take many things away from you, your health, your happiness, your prosperity, your popularity, your friends, your career, even your family. But there's one thing suffering can't take away: it can't take away the love of God.” -Ray Pritchard
