We are Precious in God‘s Sight

When you pass through the waters, I will be with you.

Isaiah 43:2, NIV

Have your thoughts been similar to these?

God, where have You been?

Why did You let this happen?

I just don’t understand.

Are you overlooking the fact that Jesus has drawn near to you?

Are you blinded to His presence by your own tears?

Are you deafened to His gentle voice by your own accusations?

While God doesn’t always answer our prayers the way we ask Him to, 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 Saviour; . . . you are precious and honoured in my sight, and . . . I love you” (Isa. 43:1-4, NIV).

May Our God The Almighty prosper Nigeria and Israel and defend us from all our enemies in Jesus Christ Name, Amen!
