'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 (https://my.bible.com/bible/111/ISA.43.2)
'Since you are precious and honored in my sight, and because I love you, I will give people in exchange for you, nations in exchange for your life. Do not be afraid, for I am with you; I will bring your children from the east and gather you from the west. ' Isaiah 43:4-5 (https://my.bible.com/bible/111/ISA.43.4-5)
We are precious in the eyes of God. God will move mountains and go out of His way to help us. He chases us and draws us closer to Him. God has sent multiple people all across my life to encourage me and help me when I needed help. He has rescued me from death multiple times and changed the sequence of events to help me. I have also experienced an encounter with angel when I was in trouble, the person looked like an elderly woman talking and helping me - and I didn’t think it was an angel -until she suddenly disappeared!! God will do amazing things to help us in our times of trouble -we just need to open our eyes and see how He has helped us rather focusing on the trouble.
He is saying even though we may face hardships on this earth (pass through the waters)- I will be with you. When you pass through the rivers, they will not sweep over you-meaning we will not be tested beyond our strength. God will give Grace, Strength and a way out.
When you pass through the fire you will not be burned, the flames will not set you ablaze. Through the testing and trials we face, God will carry us through with His Own Hand. We will not be burned. The flames will not set you ablaze-meaning it will look terrifying but the fire will not harm you- because God is with you.
We can be confident because we know we are Loved by Almighty God. He controls the whole universe and would do anything to help us. We are confident because we know that no matter what we face- God will be there with us and give us everything we need to face our trials. He will never leave us nor forsake us. We are not alone!!
