When you pass through the waters I will be with you

Posted on January 31, 2010 at 4:14 AM

Isa 43:1 But now, this is what the LORD says-

he who created you, O Jacob,

he who formed you, O Israel:

"Fear not, for I have redeemed you;

I have summoned you by name; you are mine.

Isa 43:2 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.

 

The Lord led me to those two verses at the beginning of this year and I did not know then the many trials that were facing us as a family at that time. It has been a tough month and I believe now we have turned the corner, but one thing I am sure of throughout all the trials ofthe past few weeks Raymond and I were very sure of the Lord's presence with us, helping us. I am so glad I have the Lord with me at all times for He indeeed is my refuge and my strength.

Psa 46:1 God is our refuge and strength,

an ever-present help in trouble.

Psa 46:2 Therefore we will not fear, though the earth give way

and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea,

Psa 46:3 though its waters roar and foam

and the mountains quake with their surging.

Selah

Psa 46:4 There is a river whose streams make glad the city of God,

the holy place where the Most High dwells.

Psa 46:5 God is within her, she will not fall;

God will help her at break of day.

Psa 46:6 Nations are in uproar, kingdoms fall;

he lifts his voice, the earth melts.

Psa 46:7 The LORD Almighty is with us;

the God of Jacob is our fortress.

Selah

Psa 46:8 Come and see the works of the LORD ,

the desolations he has brought on the earth.

Psa 46:9 He makes wars cease to the ends of the earth;

he breaks the bow and shatters the spear,

he burns the shields [2] with fire.

Psa 46:10 "Be still, and know that I am God;

I will be exalted among the nations,

I will be exalted in the earth."

Psa 46:11 The LORD Almighty is with us;

the God of Jacob is our fortress.

Selah
