When you go through deep waters, I will be with you.
When you go through rivers of difficulty, you will not drown.
When you walk through the fire of oppression, you will not be burned up; the flames will not consume you.
For I am the Lord, your God, the Holy One of Israel, your Savior.--------Isaiah 43:2-3
This passage of Scripture is for the BELIEVER, and should bring ASSURANCE, STRENGTH, and CONSOLATION to our weary souls. Here, the Lord God, Almighty is telling His Children that no matter what we are facing He is WITH US.
NOTICE; He doesn’t tell us that we WON’T have to go through HARD times, but He DOES tell us that He WILL be WITH us when we go through the HARD times.
When we go through rivers of difficulty, we WILL NOT drown. We WILL GO through DIFFICULTIES, but they will not bring us DOWN. They WILL NOT destroy us, because HE is with us through those difficulties and will see us through. If we put our FAITH and TRUST in HIM. He will PLACE our feet on dry ground.
When we walk through the fire of oppression, we WILL NOT be burned up; the flames WILL NOT consume us, because HE will be with us. We WILL face the fire of oppression that will come from many different directions but the flames of the oppression WILL NOT consume us. If we put our FAITH and TRUST in HIM. HE will take us through the fire and it WILL NOT consume us. He takes care of His Children because He is OUR SAVIOR.
If you are NOT His Child, then when you go through the rivers of difficulty, your risks of drowning in those difficulties and being overtaken by them, and being TAKEN DOWN by them are GREAT. The risks of being burned up, or CONSUMED by the flames of oppression too, are GREAT. But when you become a Child of God, He will get you THROUGH the RIVERS OF DIFFICULTIES and THE FIRE of OPPRESSIONS, if you will; CONFESS your sins to God, asking for His FORGIVENESS, BELIEVING, with ALL your Heart, that Jesus died for YOU and is your SAVIOR and LORD, and is in Heaven, making intercession for you before God, then ACCEPT His gift of SALVATION. Do it NOW, while you STILL can. He’s waiting!!!
