Isaiah 43:2-3 (ESV)
2 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.
3 For I am the LORD your God, the Holy One of Israel, your Savior.
Going through rivers of difficulty will either cause you to drown or force you to grow stronger. If you try to go it on your own strength, you are more likely to drown. If you allow God to get in on it, He will go with you and will protect you.
Vs. 1 & 5 says,” Fear not!” Fear is real and can cause a great deal of problems if we do not allow God to help us.
