God says: I will be with you

God says in Isaiah 43:2, “no matter what you are going through, I will be with you.” (Paraphrase is mine). God never promised you wouldn’t go through the fire or flood, but what he did promise was that he would be with you when you go through it.

I remember the fire of the three Hebrew boys who were in the fire but a fourth person was seen in the fire with them:

23 These three men, Shadrakh, Meishakh and ‘Aved-N’go, fell, bound, into the blazing hot furnace.

24 Suddenly N’vukhadnetzar sprang to his feet. Alarmed, he asked his advisers, “Didn’t we throw three men, bound, into the flames?” They answered the king, “Yes, of course, your majesty.” 

25 But he exclaimed, “Look! I see four men, not tied up, walking around there in the flames, unhurt; and the fourth looks like one of the gods!” 

Daniel 3:23-25 CJB

In fact the only people that were burned in the fire were the soldiers who carried the three boys to the furnace!

The king’s order was so urgent and the furnace so overheated that the men carrying Shadrakh, Meishakh and ‘Aved-N’go were burned to death by the flames.

Daniel 3:22 CJB

So this is just a reminder that no matter what you are going through, if you are a child of God who actually serve God in some capacity, when you go through something the rest of the world experiences, your outcome will be different from everyone else! Be encouraged.
