I read this passage this morning, and I thought it should be shared!
“1 But now, O Jacob, listen to the Lord who created you. O Israel, the one who formed you says, “Do not be afraid, for I have ransomed you. I have called you by name; you are mine.
2 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.
3 For I am the Lord, your God, the Holy One of Israel, your Savior…”
That is so reassuring: that no matter what we go through, God has set us apart to be with us in any situation. He has claimed us as His own, and He will never abandon us. He will continually save us time and time again, without fail, in His own timing and plan.
