New Living Translation (NLT)
6 For you are a holy people, who belong to the Lord your God. Of all the people on earth, the Lord your God has chosen you to be his own special treasure.
Just like all the people that served God down through the ages...you belong to Him. You are special, set apart and valuable. As you go through your day today there will be many things that don't go as you want them to. You will have setbacks, disappointments, and for some...much heartache. When these things happen remember this verse. Because you are His special treasure you have nothing to fear. Everything...your life...is in the Lords hands and He has it all under control.
