Isaiah 43:2 – The Lord Is With You

 

“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.”

~ Isaiah 43:2

I just love this scripture, one of true hope in how mighty our God really is. He will not allow us His beloved children to perish by either waters, nor fires nor anything else that we face as trials in our life.
The interesting aspect here is that He does promise He will keep us completely out of these circumstances in our life, but that He will always guide us through them safely. Very often it’s easy to either pray that God keeps us out of trials or we see them and are so overwhelmed at the size what’s in front of us that we doubt. We must understand that we will always have trials and difficult circumstances in our lives, but it is His promise to us that He will never allow these to be too great or overtake us. With that, we must also look to how big God is compared to any trouble we would face in our lives. He is mightier than anything we could ever be faced with if we will just trust in Him to guide us through.
