God is With You [Isaiah 43:2 Daily Devotional]
“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.”
What is this verse about?
This passage in Isaiah is all about God’s promise to be with us always. Though this verse is an Old Covenant promise, it still applies to us believers today. No matter the hardships we go through, God is always with us and for us.
God is With You
If you don’t get anything else out of this encouraging devotional for today, I want you to get that God is with you. No matter your circumstances and no matter what you’ve done, he is with you. Knowing this still requires you to trust him fully.
Trust God by praying. Instead of working nonstop to achieve your goals, try praying for God to fulfill the desires of your heart. It might be uncomfortable because you want to do it all yourself, but you have a God who is with you in all circumstances in your life.
Trust God by resting. Take a break. If you’re like me, you can often find yourself working too hard for very little return. A little rest can energize you enough to continue to take on what God has called you to do.
Father, I thank you that you are with me. Help me to take the next steps in my life knowing I can trust you fully. Give me the courage to pray and rest rather than stressing and working nonstop. It’s in Jesus’ name I pray, amen.
