Daily Word: God’s Treasure

Isaiah 38:20

The LORD was ready to save me: therefore we will sing my songs to the stringed instruments all the days of our life in the house of the LORD.

Have you ever felt like it was too late to turn your life around?  If you could just do it all over again you would have done things differently?  In spite of these feelings, did you know that God is always ready to save you?  We are God’s treasure and he is always looking to clean us up and give us another opportunity to walk in his light.  According to Merriam Webster’s Dictionary, a treasure is something of great worth or value; a person esteemed as rare and precious.  The word “save” means to deliver from sin, rescue from danger, and to preserve from injury or destruction.
Your life is very precious to God, which means it has GREAT value.   God is the potter and we are the clay.  As the song says “make me what you’d have me to be” because God is molding and forming us into the person he desires us to be.   You are also valuable to God because you are rare, meaning there is no one else exactly like you, no one else with your exact makeup of qualities and experiences. 
As a precious gift of God, he is always ready to save and deliver you from all harm and danger.  The Lord is here to protect you from hurt, harm, or danger.  God wants to build you up and not tear you down.  No matter what you do always remember the Lord is ready to save you. 
God wants to pick you up from that low point in your life because you are his treasure. God wants to bring you out from destruction because you are his treasure.  God wants to heal your wounded heart and broken spirit because you are his treasure.  God wants to ease your pain because you are his treasure.  God is ALWAYS ready to save you because he loves his creation.
