that’s me . . . I have been purchased with a price, sealed for a purpose and am being delivered to my destiny even now.

I am being delivered daily and will be delivered to the destiny my Heavenly Father is preparing for me. I cannot get there on my own. He is preparing my place, He is preparing the path ahead of me that I must travel to get there and He is walking that path with me, even carrying me at times when I am too weak to continue. He is delivering me day by day. He is my Deliverer.
“In My Father’s house are many rooms; if it were not so, I would have told you. I am going there to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with Me that you also may be where I am.” (John 14:2-3)
yes, I have been signed for, sealed and am in the process of being delivered. But unlike a letter left to the care of the Post Office, which may or may not reach its intended destination, I am in the care of my Heavenly Father – the One who purchased me with the blood of Jesus and sealed me with His Holy Spirit. He will keep me safe and make sure I reach my intended destination, the destination He has determined for me and is preparing even now.
yes, I am bought with a price and sealed for a purpose. I can take comfort and hope and joy in that sure knowledge.
I can rejoice in knowing that I truly am – signed, sealed and delivered!
sincerely, Grace Day
