God Is With You
January 17, 2024
“When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and through the rivers, they shall not overwhelm you; when you walk through fire you shall not be burned, and the flame shall not consume you.” Isaiah 43:2 (ESV)
There is nothing like a day when everything is working out the way we planned. It is wonderful to have a good day and enjoy the blessings of God. To enjoy those good days, we are going to have to go through some difficult days. We are going to have to face some trying times, but we know that with the help of God we will get through them. We cannot give up when things are rough, we mut continue to push and press our way through those trying times and remember that we are not alone. The Scripture reminds us, that when we pass through the waters and through the rivers, they will not overwhelm us, and when we walk through the fire and the flames, they will not consume us, because through it all God is with us. I encourage you today to stand on the wonderful promise of God being with you. God is not just with you when everything is going the way you planned, but God is with you when the waters are trying to overwhelm you. God is with you when you have to walk through the fire. There is not a time in your life or a situation that you face that God is not with you. Keep your faith in God, even when you have to go through the trials of life. When I go through the waters and the fire, I know that God is with me, and He will not allow them to overwhelm or overtake me. Since I know that God is always with me, I have no doubt, “It’s My Year To Get My Thing From My God!”
Lord thank you for always being with me. When I have great days, you are with me. When I am having bad days, you are with me. every step I take you are with me and you will not allow the trials of life to overwhelm me. Thank you Lord. I love you Lord. In Jesus Name Amen.
