This morning is the third day of rain, rain and more rain here in Florida. It is dark, gloomy and I am convinced I am going to need a snorkle to even leave my house! The Scripture that came to mind to post here was the following:
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. -Isaiah 43:2
The passage describes such overwhelming conditions, yet the Lord tells us He will be with us and we will NOT be totally overwhelmed - we will not be swept over, we will not be burned, we will not be set ablaze. In the hurting times in our lives, it easy to think that this time it has gone too far, “Lord, this is too much, I can’t handle anymore!” But He is there with us, ensuring the waters do not sweep over us, that we will not be burned and we will not be set ablaze.
Rest in the comfort of His arms this day and His promises. He is more than faithful.
