Scripture:   Isaiah (NIV)  43:1  But now, this is what the LORD says—he who created you, Jacob, he who formed you, Israel:  “Do not fear, for I have redeemed you; I have summoned you by name; you are mine.” 

Observation:   I am better at remembering faces than names and I often have trouble remembering names.  Many times I have silently and quickly prayed for the Lord to help me remember a name.  And many times he has.  In this verse God is speaking to Jacob and Israel, telling them not to fear.  He has not just put out a general call to all the nations; he has specifically called them by name!  

Application:  God did not put out a general call for me to come to him.  He called me personally.  He even gave me His name to use in prayer.   His call may come through a verse in the Bible, or a message preached to hundreds of people, or some other way, but however it comes, it comes personally.  God addresses it to Leon and signs it personally! 

Prayer:   Lord Jesus, it is so good to know that I am on a first name basis with you, the creator of the universe and the savior of my soul!  Thank you, Leon.
