DEVOTION:  Isaiah 43:1-7 English Standard Version (ESV)

Israel's Only Savior

43 But now thus says the Lord,
he who created you, O Jacob,
    he who formed you, O Israel:
"Fear not, for I have redeemed you;
    I have called you by name, you are mine.
When you pass through the waters, I will be with you;
    and through the rivers, they shall not overwhelm you;
when you walk through fire you shall not be burned,
    and the flame shall not consume you.
For I am the Lord your God,
    the Holy One of Israel, your Savior.
I give Egypt as your ransom,
    Cush and Seba in exchange for you.
Because you are precious in my eyes,
    and honored, and I love you,
I give men in return for you,
    peoples in exchange for your life.
Fear not, for I am with you;
    I will bring your offspring from the east,
    and from the west I will gather you.
I will say to the north, Give up,
    and to the south, Do not withhold;
bring my sons from afar
    and my daughters from the end of the earth,
everyone who is called by my name,
    whom I created for my glory,
    whom I formed and made."

YESTERDAY'S QUIZ:  What were the measurements of the ark?  It was to be 300 cubits in length,  50 cubits in width and 30 cubits in height.  Which translates to 450 feet in length , 75 feet in width and 45 feet high.

Are you in a conflict with a brother, sister, parent, spouse, or friend? Do you want to end that conflict and gain back loved ones and friends?  Do you want to mend fences and rebuild bridges?  Do you want to get rid of all the bitterness, anger, and resentment that you have toward others or that someone might have toward you?  Do you want to do what GOD wants you to do in your broken relationships, but you don't know where or how to start? 


Ambassadors of Reconciliation has some great tools that will help to teach you and guide you through a process of doing just that at https://www.aorhope.org/ .


You can receive access to a free online course called "Conflict Resolution vs. Reconciliation"  at https://www.aorhope.org/aor-gift because I sponsored your scholarship. Simply go to that link to access this on-line course about biblical reconciliation. It is excellent.


I took a challenge to sponsor scholarships for several people at St. John's, because I want as many people as possible to take this course and learn to go and be reconciled to one another!  If you think it is helpful you can take the challenge yourself and nominate others!


Let me know if you take the course, so I can know how many people my donation has helped!
