Isaiah 43:4 GW “Since you are precious to me, you are honored and I love you. I will exchange others for you. Nations will be the price I pay for your life.”
The verse above is mind blowing! God is saying that He will exchange lives for ours, and even nations if He has to! In other words, instead of you to die, someone else will die; instead of you to be attacked, someone else will be attacked; instead of your children to be harmed, children of others will be harmed; and instead of you to be fired, someone else will be fired! Wow! Hallelujah!
Proverbs 11:8 says, “A righteous person is rescued from trouble, and a wicked person takes his place.” And Proverbs 21:18 says “Wicked people become a ransom for righteous people, and treacherous people will take the place of decent people.”
You shall not die! No weapon formed against you shall prosper! You shall not be hit by the arrows of the wicked! There shall be no loss! A thousand man fall by your side, but no evil shall affect you! You will succeed where others have failed! You will prosper where others have lost out! No evil pronouncements aimed at you shall come to pass! Favour is yours! Even when you show up late, you will still be preferred! Your competitors shall surrender to you! In the name of Jesus!
