When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and through the rivers, they shall not overwhelm you; when you walk through fire you shall not be burned, and the flame shall not consume you.( Isaiah 43:2)
Have you ever been consumed by actual flood waters? If so, how did you escape? Was it too much to bear? Was there an action plan? Have you ever imagined what it would be like if you were completely taken out by a tremendous and tumultuous wave of water? In the same respect, life does that to us occasionally. Life has a way of using waters to rise and test our faith. Have you considered anyone that would come to your rescue had the waters overtaken you? Many times we do not have the opportunity or chance to do so because life can bring about such challenges that we lose focus. However, we have direct access while being in the presence of God. If we dial 911 for emergency, he will be on the other end waiting for your call to deliver us from the complexities of life’s storm. Today, I challenge you to discard the deflated raft in your life. For we have a Savior that does not require the use of any flotation devices because His grace is more than sufficient.
