But now thus says the Lord, he who created you, O Jacob, he who formed you, O Israel: Do not fear, for I have redeemed you; I have called you by name, you are mine. 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 43:1-2
Whatever you go through, God will be with you, and God will not let the fire burn you. This is a promise that God makes. God makes this promise because He loves you and values you so much. This is why God said “I have called you by name, you are mine.” You are God’s. When you doubt yourself, when you go through difficult moments, remember God’s love for you and God’s promise to always be with you and protect you. This promise can be your strength to carry you through all difficult moments that come your way.
Lord, may your promise be my strength. Amen.
