Between a Rock and a Hard Place

That is exactly what this section is called in the Message Bible. It’s worth sharing.

But now, Gods’s Message, the God who made you in the first place, Jacob, the One who got you started, Israel: “Don’t be afraid, I’ve redeemed you. I’ve called your name. You’re mine.

When you’re in over your head, I’ll be there with you. When you’re in rough waters, you will not go down. When you’re between a rock and a hard place, it won’t be a dead end— Because I am GOD, your personal God, The Holy of Israel, your Savior.I paid a huge price for you: all of Egypt, with rich Cush and Seba thrown in! That’s how much you mean to me! That’s how much I love you! I’d sell off the whole world to get you back, trade the creation just for you. (Isaiah 43:1-4, MSG)

Now of course this was written to the Israelites centuries ago, but the truth is, that’s exactly how God feels about us now! .And he did give up everything for us. He bought us for a huge price, the death of his son, Jesus.

For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. (John 3:16, KJV)

Prayer – Lord may we never take for granted, your sacrifices on our behalf. Amen!
