“Do not fear, for I have redeemed you;
I have called you by name; you are Mine!
2 “When you pass through the waters, I will be with you;
And through the rivers, they will not overflow you.
When you walk through the fire, you will not be scorched,
Nor will the flame burn you.
3 “For I am the Lord your God,
The Holy One of Israel, your Savior;
When we go through the waters
Get ready! We will go through the waters and the world will see the wonders of the Lord in the land of the living when we do!
When we go through the fires – Let His presence reside with you there that the world would see His love and power demonstrated in the circumstances!
It is an absolute that we will go through the rivers and fires, but we do not need to fear! No! For He is the Lord our God, the Holy One – and He goes with us to prepare a way where there seems not!
Fix your perspective on the divine opportunity of the river experience and the fire trials. In these opportunities, the world encounters the evidence of God’s power and love. The world sees Him, with you, in the trials and the sufferings. They see Him comfort you and keep you from drowning or being overswept in the current. They watch as the things that ought to consume you actually glorify Him as He delivers you!
I could go on and on, but my real hope is that you will listen to the Word of God, to the Spirit of Truth in Love and allow the Holy Spirit to minister to you and bring you into a place where you rise up, right where you are! Dancing in the miraculous ways that He keeps you so that the World would know He is God… and that He so Loves the World!
