P1010477“When you go through deep waters, I will be with you. When you go through rivers of difficulty, you will not drown. When you walk through the fire of oppression, you will not be burned up; the flames will not consume you.” (Isaiah 43:2, NLT)

“When you’re in over your head, I’ll be there with you. When you’re in rough waters, you will not go down. When you’re between a rock and a hard place, it won’t be a dead end.” (Isaiah 43:2, The Message)

As you purpose to rise up, take authority, and walk in confidence you can be encouraged by this passage. You’re going to go through deep waters, you will go through rivers of difficulty, and you will walk through the fire of oppression. But God…He will be with you, you will not drown, you will not be burned up, and the flames will not consume you.

As I’ve mentioned throughout my writings this week, this is your time to stand tall. This is the time to push through and do it with your shoulders back. It’s time to stop bowing to the feet of the enemy and start bowing to the King. It’s time to stop giving in to the tactics of the enemy and start commanding them to bow.

I want to encourage you today, don’t stop, keep walking! No matter what you face, push through, He will be there beside you. This is your time to overcome. Don’t stop, keep walking!
