“Fear not, for I have redeemed you; I have summoned you by name; you are mine. 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 discusses that Jesus will be with us through all of our life journeys. Through the best of times and through the worst of times. There is nothing we cannot conquer with God by our side.
We are called out by name by God. He has called us and made each of us the way we are for a reason. God has crafted each and everyone of us in his image and there is not a day in our lies that he has not seen. God would never put us in any situation we could not handle, that is not who he is.
Passing through the waters, or fire God has us. He will walk with us through all the different situations that we encounter. He will never let us fall. We are his and he will take care of us until we walk with him in Heaven.
Some people might be scared off as it explains how when we walk through the fire he will be with us. Some might take that as he’s not looking out for us and turning us away from the fire. The fire is a metaphor for the hardships we have in life. No it is wrong to think that he will walk us around the fire, though he does say he will be by our sides to walk through it. Walking through the fire we each have in our lives is just a part of life, but it is an important part of life. We as Christians need to learn how to walk through the fire and not be afraid to conquer it all because He is by our sides through it all.
A common question in the Christian faith is; if God is so good, why do bad things happen to good people? This is a normal question to ask. There really isn’t a solid answer to this question. But what can be said is that; we celebrate Good Friday. Good Friday should not be a celebration as it was the day when the worst thing happened to the best person. Good Friday was the worst Friday until Easter Morning.
Choosing to walk in Christ was one of the best decisions I have ever made. Though some days are hard, he is with me and loves me unconditionally. Through the fires and through the streams he is always with me. He is the one thing that will never ever ever give up on me and will never let me give up on myself. He is a driving force in my life. Choose to walk through life with him and you will forever be thankful. There is nothing I cannot do without him beside me :).
