This morning while at my desk, reading and praying and rejoicing, after being in bed for a month, my heart overflows with joy. Am working with Isaiah 43:1, 2 and 4 which reads “now thus saith the Lord that created thee, O Jacob, and He that formed thee, O Israel, Fear not: for I have redeemed thee by thy name; thou art mine. When thou passest through the waters, I will be with thee; and through the rivers, they shall not overflow thee: when thou walkest through the fire, thou shalt not be burned; neither shall the flame kindle upon thee. Since thou wast precious in my sight, thou hast been honourable, and I have love thee:”
Never does He say that we won’t have to pass through the waters, nor walk through the fire, but He does say, He will be with us. As I think about my earlier prayers, I can remember praying for more humility and grace so I could hear Him better. This past month has been just that and I am so grateful for this lesson that became the biggest blessing of my life. Only Spiritual growth is going on!
