When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; And through the rivers, they will not overflow you. When you walk through the fire, you will not be scorched, Nor will the flame burn you. – Isaiah 43:2 NASB
The uncertainties of life can be scary. None of us are exempt from tests and trials and as much as we wish there was, there is no formula to live by that would yield a perfect life untouched by pain and discomfort. Still, God gives us something very special during these times, He gives us Himself.
God is with us, especially during our difficult seasons. I say this not because it always feels like it because usually, it doesn’t. I say this because He promises to be with us through the deep waters and fires of life. Making it through will not be easy but with God it is possible. I encourage you to allow God’s presence give you hope no matter what you are facing today.
Dear Heavenly Father, thank you for your comforting presence especially when life is hard. I pray for the strength to look for you when times are dark. In Jesus Christ Name I pray. Amen.
When was a time you faced a difficult life challenge but you still knew God was with you through it all?
