Day #2: "You Are MiNe." { HeArT to hEaRt }

  "YoU Are MiNe."

I'm convinced that humanity's favorite question to God, our Maker is... "Why?!" Oh! the times this question has been thrown at the Throne on behalf of a bewildered child of Christ.

How about this doozy?...
"Why does God love me?"

One day I asked my son why he loved his little dog named Trixy. His response encouraged my heart. He answered in kind confidence,
" Because she is my pet."

His love for her, was not dependent upon her being the perfect pet. Honestly, she's a bit long, even for a wiener dog. My son's love for his pet was simply because, she ...was his.

Hear this from the pen of Isaiah as he offers words to answer your "why?".

{ Isaiah 43:1 says : But now says the LORD that created you, O Jacob, and he that formed you, O Israel, Fear not: for I have redeemed you, I have called you by your name; you are mine. }

Did you catch that?  The reasoning for the overflow of love from God, to you, was just summed up in three tiny words. He declares His love is for you, and replaces our
        "why?" with
            " YoU are MiNe!"

Now that's some chicken soup for the skeptic's heart!  The adoration from the Almighty is yours, just because you are HiS!

Think about it! His amazing LoVe for His you, His creation, is not because you always get it right. Not because you always obey or because you are a perfect child of His. But because He formed you. He created you. And He calls you by your name. (Surrendered to Him or not) You are His creation.

His love is PerSonAL! The Almighty knows you personally. And in spit of you... He still adores you, perfectly. So when you contemplate deep within your heart, why the Almighty could love unmighty you;

Hear Him sweetly whisper...
                        "Because,  you are mine".
