signed, sealed and delivered

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

PURCHASED (signed for)

“you were bought at a price.  Therefore honor God with your body.”  (1 Corinthians 6:20)

” . . . You (Jesus) were slain, and with Your blood You purchased men for God from every tribe and language and people and nation.”  (Revelation 5:9)

SEALED

“and do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God, with whom you were sealed for the day of redemption.”   (Ephesians 4:30)

”  . . .  Having believed, you were marked in Him with a seal, the promised Holy Spirit, who is a deposit guaranteeing our inheritance until the redemption of those who are God’s possession – to the praise of His glory.”   (Ephesians 1:13-14)

DELIVERED

“The Lord is my rock, my fortress and my deliverer;  . . .  I call to the Lord, who is worthy of praise, and I am saved from my enemies.”   (Psalm 18:2-3)

”  . . .  I know whom I have believed, and am convinced that He is able to guard what I have entrusted to Him for that day.”   (2 Timothy 12)

“being confident of this, that He who began a good work in you (and me) will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.”    (Philippians 1:6)

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
