Thought for the day #279
Isaiah 43:2 (New American Standard Bible)
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.
Life is hard!
Every Christian goes through difficult trials. Though some may be blessed with economic abundance or social status, everyone is tested.
Difficulties of various dimensions befall us all. While one may be able to handle certain situations better than another, each of us have areas of testing that are overwhelming.
One may look upon another believing that they are so blessed that they could not possibly have need of any kind. Not true. Sometimes those who seem all sufficient, face situations that most others could never handle.
Rest assured that every child of God will be tested and tried. Faith will be challenged. Peace will be disrupted. Health may be destroyed. Temptation may seem overwhelming. But, God never fails his children.
Whether rich or poor, socially accepted or rejected, our heavenly Father has promised to preserve and keep us as we face every trial.
We are His children and members of his kingdom. He has promised safe passage through the waters of adversity, and the flood tide of opposition. Fiery trials of purification will not scorch us, nor will the flame of tribulation consume us.
Almighty God will give safe passage through the turmoil of opposition. We are firmly preserved and established in His kingdom. Nothing can remove us from his guiding hand. Ours is the victory!
Dear Heavenly Father, I come before you with thankful heart. I'm going through things that only you know about. I'm sure no one else would understand. I appreciate the surety of your promise. I trust you to give me safe passage through the trials that I face. Thank you for your protection. I pray in the name of Jesus Christ, my wonderful Redeemer. Amen.
