Comfort in Isaiah 43

I’ve been reading Isaiah 43 again this morning and just reflecting on how awesome God is. He made us, and knows us, and even more amazing is that He still wants us. He is willing to pay the price to redeem us despite our flaws. He doesn’t take us out of our difficult situations, but Isaiah says, “When you pass through the waters I will be with you; And through the rivers, they shall not overflow you. When you walk through the fire you shall not be burned, Nor shall the flame scorch you. For I am the Lord your God.” What a comfort. This same God that created the universe was willing to change land formations for his people and create streams in the desert. Wow, what a God!

Maybe you are going through some deep waters in your life today and need to know that someone cares. Reach out to God. He is there and knows and cares and will be with you. We are praying for you!

We are either off to Brantford to Freedom Christian Community or Grapeview this morning(depending on whether we need to be relief actors for a Christmas performance), blessings!
