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.”
Do not Fear: God Loves You
God wants us to understand that He loves us and to grow in our enjoyment of that love.
See Romans 5:1-5; Ephesians 3:16-19.
The key to know... and ultimately experience the Love of God—is understanding the value we have in His eyes.

See Romans 8:15-16
III. YOUR PURPOSE THROUGH HIM (ISAIAH 43:7)
