Isaiah 43:2

When you pass through the waters, I will be with you.... Isaiah 43:2

Do you ever ask God "where have you been?"

"Why did you let this happen?"

Maybe you just don't understand something going on in your life, trying to figure out if it is being allowed by God or is it Satan who has been granted permission to sift you?

Remember that God is moving even when he is silent. He may be drawing near to you and you have not noticed. Maybe your own tears are blinding you from his presence! Just maybe you can't hear his gentle whisper in your heart because you are so caught up in your own self. Get to higher ground so you can hear him better. Don't remain in your own self pity. Satan wants to take you back to square one. He wants you to start completely over. You have to get out of your pit. It can become a habitual cycle over and over again. One of the Yahweh sisters and I laugh because we are constantly falling into our own pit. We offer each other our make believe tools. She will even text me and say, " Do you want to borrow my tools to get out of that pit, just make sure you return them I might need them tomorrow." (Amen)... Surround yourself with Godly friends that can help support you when you are down. Friends that can lift you up when your wings don't remember how to fly. If you don't have this pray for God to send you someone that is walking with God that can give you Godly advice and help when you need it. I am so blessed to have the Yahweh girls; and if I need prayer I text and I know they are hitting the ground on their knees for me. They love me with all my imperfections. So today I thank you God for these precious women in my life.. Remember that Satan is like a roaring lion walking around ready to devour you and your life at any minute.
God doesn't always protect us the way we feel that we should be protected. He doesn't always keep us from suffering. But what he does promise in HIS word that HE will be present with us in the midst of our suffering and pain.... He said, "Fear not....When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and when you pass through the rivers, they will not sweep over you.... For I am the LORD YOUR GOD...YOUR SAVIOR;...YOU ARE PRECIOUS AND HONORED IN MY SIGHT, AND ...I LOVE YOU"...Isa. 43:1-4......
