When you pass through the waters, I will be with you" (Isaiah 43:2). Some of us have literally passed through the waters recently, and all of us know many who have, and yet in the midst of the fear that comes with hurricanes and floods the Lord promises his people that he will be with them. God reminds us in Isaiah 43 just how precious, honored, and loved his people are. In spite of the church's rebellion against God he has remained faithful, so faithful that he ransomed his only Son on the cross for us. That is incredible love! That is incredibly good news! If you feel hopeless or like no one is with you through your suffering, I invite you to come and listen to the promises that God makes to his people as they pass through the waters.
