I had a sweet friend send me this the other day…Isaiah 43: 2 …..
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.
She also said;
‘I don’t understand God and why he allows these awful things, but I am so grateful that he never leaves us or forsakes us….So glad God is with you, He will not let you drown or be burned. He will help you get through this time. Notice it says WHEN not IF we go through these things.’
How true that is…..
Verse 1 also says this:
But now, this is what the Lord says—
he who created you, Jacob,
he who formed you, Israel:
“Do not fear, for I have redeemed you;
I have summoned you by name; you are mine.
Do not fear. We are the Lord’s. He created us, He formed us. We are His. Do not fear.
