When you go through deep waters, I will be with you.
When you go through rivers of difficulty, you will not drown.
When you walk through the fire of oppression, you will not be burned up;
the flames will not consume you.
For I am the Lord, your God, the Holy One of Israel, your Savior.
Isaiah 43:2-3 New Living Translation (NLT)
The world is consumed with adversity resulting from floods and fires. It is comforting to know that God has a Word for this before we experience it. We don't usually feel comforted when we "go through," but we are blessed to have the assurance that our Savior is with us through everything.
As many remember the horror of September 11, 2001, many others are totally caught up in recovering from a storm that devastated their lives. Yet, as we endure these trials and tribulations, this fact remains: God is with us and He controls the future. Be encouraged. This too shall pass.
