I Will Take You to Be My People

Throughout our lives, we have groped for the light. We have searched for meaning and purpose in other things; but the only thing that has satisfied is doing God’s will. Nothing has come close to seeing God’s will working in our lives.

“I will take you to be my people, and I will be your God, and you shall know that I am the LORD your God, who has brought you out from under the burdens of the Egyptians.”

(Exodus 6:7)

By God’s will, we have life. By His mercy, we have hope of a resurrection to everlasting life. Through Jesus, we have that life. God took us out of the darkness and made us His. We are His elect. No one can take away what God has given us.

God will seize and bind the dragon, that ancient serpent, who is the devil and Satan. He no longer has dominion in our lives, for through God’s sacrifice, we are His; He lives in us. Whatever may ail us, God will heal by His Spirit.

Be kind to one another. Give freely to the poor and to the sick. Show mercy to those who need mercy. Be thoughtful and generous to all. God will provide. We ought not to worry, for as God promised, “I will take you to be my people.”

  1. I have believed in God so much as he has taken me from nothing as in having 5 health problems that could have been fatal to me & the life I lived. I had to get past a memory blockage that came from a low blood pressure & low blood sugar problem, along with being pigeon-toed & having chronic allergies. I got through it by eating about 5 x a day & having a great active life to bring me from what I was to learning about life & how God truly made me the best person I can be now! I had to take a lot of things said & do what was needed through spices & herbs also which brings me to having a blog about my health. Have a great day through Jesus Christ our Lord and Saviour & God our father!

  2. Amen…I love God’s promises. His faithfulness it like none other, an amazing and wonderful friend!

    A song I sang in Sunday school…”What a Friend We Have in Jesus”.
