From Isaiah 43: 1b to 3a The Message – part of my reading for the morning. Next to the Psalms, Isaiah ranks highest for me in speaking to needs deep within me – for comfort, for my need to feel cared for by a God who never comes to dead ends like I do.
Don’t be afraid, I’ve redeemed you.
I’ve called your name. You’re mine.
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—
Because I am God, your personal God,
The Holy of Israel, your Savior.
