Day 7

Isaiah 43:2

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.

We are never promised that in our life, we will not experience difficult times. That is the superficial American Dream that has infiltrated Christianity. We are however, promised again and again that we are not expected to go through it alone. Isaiah 43:2 really says this:

When you pass through the water,

fear not – only believe that I will be with you.

And through the rivers,

fear not – only believe that they will not over take you.

When you walk through the fire,

fear not – only believe

that you will not be scorched, nor will the flame burn you.

It’s a fact, not a promise. All that is asked of us is to fear not – only believe!
