Taking No Chances


When you pass through the waters, I will be with you;
And through the rivers, they will not overflow you.
When you walk through the fire, you will not be scorched,
Nor will the flame burn you.
For I am the Lord your God.
Isa. 43:2–3 NASB

With God—chance is eliminated.

God knows what is best.

No struggle will come your way apart from his purpose, his presence, and his permission.

Isaiah 43:2 says,

“When you pass through the waters, I will be with you and through the rivers,

they will not overflow you.”

What encouragement!

You are never the victim of nature or the prey of fate.

Chance is eliminated.

You are more than a weather vane whipped about by the winds of fortune.

Would God truly abandon you to the whims of drug-crazed thieves, greedy corporate raiders,

or evil leaders?

Perish the thought!

You live beneath the protective palm of a sovereign King

who superintends every circumstance of your life, and delights in doing you good.

Remember this.

Nothing comes your way that has not first passed through the filter of God’s love.
