"Thus says the Lord...'Do not fear, for I have redeemed you; I have called you by name; you are mine. 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.
I, even I, am the Lord , and apart from me there is no savior.
Forget the former things; do not dwell on the past. See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland."
Isaiah 43:1-2, 11, 18-19 (paraphrased)
The Lord is indeed doing a new thing...can you see it? It is time to forget the old things, and trust Him to do a new thing in our lives! We must come into His rest, and not be afraid. He has called us by name, and we are His. When we pass through the waters, or walk through the fire, He will be with us! He will "make a way in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland". Do you believe it? Trust Him...He's got this!!
