My favorite Bible verse(s) of all time is Isaiah 43: 1b-3a
“Fear not, for I have redeemed you; I have summoned 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 even set you ablaze. For I am the Lord, your God, the Hold One of Israel, your Savior.”
When I personalize this verse, this is what it looks like:
“Do not fear, for I have redeemed Shannan; when Shannan passes through the waters, I will be with her. And when Shannan passes through the rivers They will not sweep over her. When Shannan walks through the fire she will not be burned. The flames will not set her ablaze
For I am the Lord, Shannan’s God, The Holy One of Israel, Shannan’s Savior.”
These verses tell me that God is and always will be there for me no matter what. I have nothing to fear with God on my side. He will take care of me and of my every need. I need to keep my eyes on Him and stay focused on Him.
