Supernatural Solutions

But now thus says the Lord, he who created you, O Jacob, he who formed you, O Israel: “Fear not, for I have redeemed you; I have called you by name, you are mine. When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and through the rivers, they shall not overwhelm you; When you walk through fire you shall not be burned, and the flame shall not consume you. For I am the Lord your God, the Holy One of Israel, your Savior. I give Egypt as your ransom, Cush and Seba in exchange for you. Because you are precious in my eyes, and honored, and I love you, I give men in return for you, peoples in exchange for your life. Fear not, for I am with you; I will bring your offspring from the east, and from the west I will gather you. Isaiah 43:1-5 ESV
What an incredible word today for those who are enduring the many "natural" disasters of life. This morning I began my day praying for those that lost houses in tornadoes just a couple of weeks ago. And then I moved on to those that saw floods that are still consuming anything in their path. I am meditating on this verse for them and trying to see God's hand of mercy and grace through all of this. We don't need any more natural disasters, we need some supernatural solutions!
Fire, tornado, flood...no matter the hardship God is with us. He promised we would not be overwhelmed when this is all over. He wants us to be overcomers! And we will! Because WE are precious in his eyes, he honors us and loves us!
Take courage my friends, though it seems bad right now, something great has already begun. You will rise above the water, you will walk right through the fire and you will build something that brings glory to God and blessing to your family!
