The Lord Be With You Today!
"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."
(As the Lord leads us to our rightful heritage of life in Him,
He promises His presence and provision.
Though He knows we will encounter trials
and face difficult challenges and situations,
even seeing what lies ahead on our path far before we get to them,
He remains with us, guiding us, leading us, sustaining us,
to make sure we make it through safely.
He vows that when, not if, we face hardships,
He will walk us through the waters, the rivers,
and the fire of our trials and temptations and hardships,
the implicit promise being that He will see to it
that we get through to the other side of the issues facing us,
that they will not ultimately defeat us.
Because of His presence through the Holy Spirit in us,
those blocks and hazards we face today will not overcome us or take us out.
We will not be swept away nor be harmed by the flood or the blaze
because the Lord Himself promises
that He will remain with us through all of it
and that He will protect us through all of it!)
May the Lord richly bless you this day!
In Christ’s love,
