"You don't worry about that. You're mine now." These were the sweetest words I ever heard coming from another man's voice. Sydney was my father in law. He was a manufacturer's representative. That means he sold directly for the manufacturer but he was self-employed. Syd was in business for himself and he was selling floral containers to flower shops.
I was a teacher needing summer employment to supplement our family income. Sydney was offering me $150 per week. This was in 1972 when that was a fair amount of money. So, I told Syd, " I'm not sure I can sell enough to make the money back for you." Syd's reply was, "You don't worry about that. You're mine now."
God wants us to hear well the very same thought. If we are in Christ, believing and trusting in Him as Savior and Lord, then Christ says to us, "Let not your hearts be troubled. Believe in God, believe also in me. In my Father's house are many rooms. If it were not so, would I have told you that I go to prepare a place for you? And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and will take you to myself, that where I am you may be also." (John 14: 1-3, ESV)
God is not a "force, concept, ideal, etc." God is a Person who has created persons, that is, people, He is beyond our understanding in that He is not mere human. However, God is truth and therefore truthful with us. He is love and is therefore compassionate with us. He is faithfulness and is therefore faithful to us.
God has challenged me to grow up into being more of a man in the face of mortality. Recently, when I was in the hospital, Stefanie, my wife, sent out the call to believers that I was in mortal dange. And, through His Spirit, God motivated them to pray. Then, He answered those prayers with blessing and positive results. Thus, it might be said that God said, "You don't worry about that. You're mine now."
