When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and through the rivers, they shall not overflow you. When you walk through the fire, you shall not be burned, nor shall the flame scorch you.
–Isaiah 43:2 NKJV
It matters not what you are going through in life right now, God promises that He will be with you through every difficult moment. This is a promise you can completely and totally depend on, because He is always faithful. You need not fear or despair, for God is a “bull’s eye” kind of God. He is never too early and He is never too late. He always shows up at the exact moment He’s needed. God is sovereign; He is omnipotent—He knows all things. What you see as impossible, is not impossible for the “Great I Am.”
Sometimes when you go through difficult and painful situations, you may feel like you’re drowning, going through the fire of so much despair you think you may perish. But God tells you not to fear, for I am the Lord your God, the Holy One of Israel, your Savior (Isaiah 43:3 NKJV). At this very moment, the Holy One’s hand is extended to you—take it! And see the impossible become possible.
- Ask Holy Spirit to fill you with the strength to overcome the deep waters in your life.
- Pray that you will stay focused on the Holy One of Israel through every storm in life.
