Through Deep Waters

Isaiah 43:1-6

But now, O Jacob, listen to the Lord who created you. O Israel, the one who formed you says,

Do not be afraid, for I have ransomed you. I have called you by name; you are mine.

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.

For I am the Lord, your God, the Holy One of Israel, your Savior.

Others were given in exchange for you. I traded their lives for yours because you are precious to me.

You are honored, and I love you.

Do not be afraid, for I am with you.

I will gather you and your children from east and west. I will say to the north and south, bring my sons and daughters back to Israel from the distant corners of the earth.
