You Belong To God

‘Fear not, for I have redeemed you… You are Mine.’ Isaiah 43:1 NKJV

When God redeems you, He owns you. And what He owns, He protects! This is illustrated in the story of Belshazzar. The Bible says: ‘Belshazzar the king made a great feast for a thousand of his lords… Belshazzar gave the command to bring the gold and silver vessels which his father Nebuchadnezzar had taken from the temple… in Jerusalem, that… his lords, his wives, and his concubines might drink from them.’ (Daniel 5:1–2 NKJV)

Now, if they’d just abused some worthless old cup it might not have mattered, but God valued these sacred vessels too much to let them be mishandled. So out of the invisible sleeve of the night, the finger of God wrote the fate of Belshazzar on his palace walls. ‘That very night… Belshazzar was slain. And Darius the Mede received the kingdom.’ (Daniel 5:30-31 NKJV)

As a redeemed child of God, here’s an unchanging principle you can stand on: ‘He permitted no man to do them wrong… saying, “Do not touch My anointed ones.”’ (1 Chronicles 16:21–22 NKJV)

You may have to fight on foreign soil, work at home in a difficult situation, or endure hardship for your faith. But you can be sure of one thing—God has too much invested in you to let you be destroyed. And any time Satan tries, God will interrupt his party and say, ‘This vessel is off limits—it took Me too long to teach this woman to pray… I’ve invested too many years training this man how to overcome… They’ve endured too much for My name’s sake for Me to let you harm them. Take your hands off them; they’re Mine!’
