So, as I was reading through the book of Isaiah I ran across the below verses in chapter 62:2-4–as God was speaking to (His Bride) Israel. From this, I began thinking of how many women—married or not feel like they’ve lost their “glory—glow”; given away or lost their “name—identity”; no longer feel “beautiful”; have been “forsaken”; who are flat-out “desolate” and unwanted!

Well, as you head into the NEW YEAR—THIS IS WHAT GOD THINKS OF YOU: “The nations will see your righteousness, and all kings your glory; and you will be called by a new name which the mouth of the LORD will designate. You will also be a crown of beauty in the hand of the LORD, and a royal diadem in the hand of your God. It will no longer be said to you, “Forsaken,” nor to your land will it any longer be said, “Desolate”; But you will be called, “My delight is in her,” and your land, “Married”; for the LORD delights in you, and to Him your land will be married.”

Hold on to these principles:

  1. God has renamed you with His own mouth—listen to what HE thinks of you—everything good is captured in your new name!
  2. Your beauty and royalty are crafted and found in God’s hands—not in what you make yourself up to be or what others make you out to be!
  3. You will never be called forsaken—He will never abandon you or desolate—He alone completes you!
  4. You will never again be unwanted—You are His (forever) bride!

All of these wonderful—unchanging promises begin/began when you completely surrender your life to God through the finished work of Jesus Christ. Never forget it—walk in it—live it!
