When you go through deep waters,
I will be with you.
When you go through rivers of difficulty,
you will not drown.
When you walk through the fire of oppression,
you will not be burned up;
the flames will not consume you.
We've all been in this place-the circumstances of life are overwhelming. The water is over our head. Life is hard and difficult; it's like walking through fire.
In this place I've found that God only opens the path right in front of us. His light doesn't shine down the road, and He doesn't remove life's obstacles from our way before we reach them. But, He always meets us at the edge of our need and sometimes, it's at the very last moment.
He asks that we trust Him. He wants us to want Him. Otherwise, we won't need faith to take that next step. And then, who is in control?
Today, may you willingly grasp His hand and take that next step. He's there.
