‘When’ not ‘if’ // 01-02-19

“When you go through deep waters, I will be with you. When you go through rivers of difficulty, you will not drown…For I am the Lord, your God, the Holy One of Israel, your Saviour.” Isaiah‬ ‭43:2-3‬ ‭NLT‬‬

Notice it is ‘when you go through…’ not ‘if’! We are caught up in a spiritual battle for our hearts and minds, we have an enemy who is still seeking to kill, steal and destroy though he has lost the war! Sin is still wreaking havoc as the love of many grows cold, but… Jesus is coming back, the story isn’t over yet! The Holy Spirit is very present with me whatever situation I find myself in, and I can be strong for the fight, sure that His strength will get me through and not keep me stuck, and I will not drown here but will experience His saving power as I trust in Him! Lord, help me not to lose heart in any difficulties I face, but to take heart, knowing You have overcome this world and I am more than a conqueror with You 🙏🏼🙌🏼
