“When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and when you pass through the rivers, they will not sweep over you. When you walk through the fire, you will not be burned; the flames will not set you ablaze. For I am the Lord, your God, the Holy one of Israel, your Savior…” – Is. 43:2-3
Life is not always an easy road. We all have our fair share of ups and downs. But, this passage filled me with hope as I read it. He who created and formed us, calls us and as we are coming to him, he will be with us. The rivers will not sweep over us, and the fire will not set us ablaze. He is our Lord, the holy one!
If you are in the process of walking through deep rivers or fires in your life, remember this promise. God is with you. Be faithful on your journey, because, praise the Lord, he is faithful to us.
