August 17–Chosen Witnesses

Think of some of the most amazing events and experiences that you have ever been privileged enough to witness. Maybe you witnessed sincere and deep lasting love between a husband and wife. Maybe the birth of a precious child…or a sick loved one getting well…or going home to be with Jesus. Maybe the beauty of the mountains…or oceans…or rivers…or endless, open fields…or canyons…or a sunrise…or a sunset. Maybe you witnessed (at last!) the winning of a championship game by your favorite team. Maybe you winessed and experienced a really great meal…with a really great friend.

From the life-changing to the life-gratifying, we are privileged to be witnesses to many amazing events and experiences over the course of our lifetime.

Our LORD calls us to witness something far more amazing than anything else we could ever imagine: the LORD Himself!

“You are my witnesses,” declares the LORD,

“and my servant whom I have chosen, so that you may

know and believe me and understand that I am he.

Before me no god was formed, nor will there be one after me.

I, even I, am the LORD, and apart from me there is no savior.”

Isaiah 43:10-11

To be the LORD’s chosen witness is our LORD’s loving invitation to each of us to know and believe God and understand that the LORD alone is God…and the LORD alone is is our Savior. 

We could witness nothing—we could be nothing—more life-changing or life-gratifying than to be God’s chosen witness! 

In love, peace and purposeful passion,                                                               Sylane
