Even when you are chased by those who seek to kill you, your life is safe in the care of the Lord your God, secure in his treasure pouch! 1 Samuel 25:29 (NLT)
What is a treasure pouch? It is a bag used to carry valuable treasure. What is a treasure? We are!
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. Isaiah 43:4
See, I have written your name on the palms of my hands. Isaiah 49:16
Long ago the Lord said to Israel:
“I have loved you, my people, with an everlasting love.
With unfailing love I have drawn you to myself. Jeremiah 31:3
See how very much our Father loves us, for he calls us his children, and that is what we are! 1 John 3:1
For the Lord your God is living among you.
He is a mighty savior.
He will take delight in you with gladness.
With his love, he will calm all your fears.
He will rejoice over you with joyful songs.” Zephaniah 3:17
God holds us so very close to him and protects us as we would hold on to and protect a treasure. Our lives are precious. You are loved. You are a treasure. Yes, you. But, don't just take my word for it. Ask him yourself. He'll tell you!
