Called By Name

Called By Name
This painting is a reminder to me that my Heavenly Father has all things in HIS hands. There is a passage in the Old Testament book of Isaiah that comes to my mind, and brings comfort in tough times. I know that GOD loves me and will orchestrate all of my life circumstances, just as HE promised HIS people then. 

Isaiah 43 (New American Standard Bible)
43:1 But now, thus says the Lord, your Creator, O Jacob,
And He who formed you, O Israel,
“Do not fear, for I have redeemed you;
I have called you by name; you are Mine!
2 “When you pass through the waters, I will be with you;
And through the rivers, they will not overflow you.
When you walk through the fire, you will not be scorched,
Nor will the flame burn you.
3 “For I am the Lord your God,
The Holy One of Israel, your Savior;
...
4 “Since you are precious in My sight,
Since you are honored and I love you,
I will give other men in your place and other peoples in exchange for your life.
5 “Do not fear, for I am with you;
...
7 Everyone who is called by My name,
And whom I have created for My glory, 
Whom I have formed, even whom I have made.”
