Isaiah 43:2 (NIV)

Nowhere in the Bible do God or Jesus tell us that we have no problems in our lives. On the contrary, Jesus indicates that we will have hardship and distress. The point is, God and Jesus are always helping us. They lead us out of every valley better than we can even imagine.

So, if the water of sadness is up to your neck, when the fire of hopelessness blazes wildly around you, then this is your biblically based certainty: “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.” (God in Isaiah 43:2; NIV)

Trust your God with confidence; it is about Him and not about external circumstances, which are only temporary and can change so quickly.
