Isaiah 43:1-2

Scripture is God-breathed and true. When we memorize it, we carry the good news of Jesus with us wherever we go.

This week, we will continue memorizing Isaiah 43:1–2 by adding the second verse. God has promised He will be with us in every circumstance, no matter how difficult or trying.

Now this is what the LORD says—
the one who created you, Jacob,
and the one who formed you, Israel—
“Do not fear, for I have redeemed you;
I have called you by your name; you are mine.
When you pass through the waters,
I will be with you,
and the rivers will not overwhelm you.
When you walk through the fire,
you will not be scorched,
and the flame will not burn you.”
—Isaiah 43:1–2

    He knows me and he walks with me. The days are a little less daunting when I think of that truth.

    I love to have the reassurance that no matter how bad things seem around us, we internally can have the joy of the Lord.

  3. Geneva Ortega says:

    This is a really good reminder. And a crazy thing to think about. It’s a promise from God that through it all He is right next to us

    Isaiah 43:1 was in one of our Bible lessons in Bible class this morning! It ALWAYS gives me chills! I also would totally be your friend on FB, RHONDA J., but I gave up social media a couple years ago. I’ve thought of coming back, but this is my social media outlet, as well as ‘Connect’ (on WW…

  10. Julie Roberson says:

    @meemejo-prayers lifted up for your country and countrymen in the name of Jesus.

    Sunday is supposed to be a day of rest, well it definitely is for me today, I went to bed about my usual time (2:30 am) and just woke up about ten or fifteen minutes ago. I guess I was really tired from my previous weeks work.
    The verse from Isaiah is one that I will be copying and putting up because, I sure like many of you, I go through time of troubles where I feel like even the Lord isn’t close by. By writing it out on an index card and posting up on either my fridge or my mirror or both, I will be reminded of HOW MUCH GOD DOES LOVE MY AND IS THERE FOR MY ALLLWWAAYYYSSS!!!!!!!
    Be blessed and remember you CAN ALWAYS rely on GOD, CHRIST AND THE HOLY SPIRIT.

    I pray that you can pray for my mom’s health. She’s wheezing pretty bad and all the things she has tried to stop it have not been working. She’s been tired mostly. Please pray for her health to improve. I love you dear sisters

  13. Linda Branch says:

    Prayed for God to open doors of blessings for you and your husband. My pastor preached on God as our provider and God is faithful in all situations.

  14. Churchmouse says:

    Oh you SRT friends, your comments, bless my soul and help me to keep the Sabbath day holy. I ask God to meet all your needs and give you peace in whatever your circumstance. It is not “if” the waters rise or the fire rages but “when.” How comforting to know that we do not face them alone. It is not relying on our own power or resourcefulness but relying solely on God who accompanies us. He is our protector and guide. He always gets His children home. So glad we have each other with whom to share our journeys.

  15. Buffy Rennie says:

    @rebekah picarelli concerning you friend, go to Melissa Dougherty in Instagram or https://youtu.be/a7TMfOt4dtk
    She is an escapee of all things pagan. Good information for you and possibly your friend.

    Amen and Amen Jennifer Loves Jesus!! So beautifully said!!

    Fix your eyes, Fix your eyes, on Jesus! Oh my soul, bless the Lord, I will bow down in wonder.

    Church was full of blessings this morning. We are doing a study on Enough. He is enough, our Lord is enough- in our singleness, in our marriage, in our hurt, in our brokenness- The key phrase I took away, whatever our current situation- We are perfectly positioned to experience the Lord’s fullness. Let us get rid of every weight we have on us today SHE’s, lets put our eyes on Him today!

    Prayed for you Taylor today! While you are single and want a partner, you have time for the Lord to work in you! Fix your eyes on Him! (encouraging, not lecturing!) You will not have the time of freedom for long probably, and you will be longing for alone time! haha.

    So happy to connect with my SHE’s on Fb and IG! Hope some more of you can friend us! Let’s evolve our little community here, to connect in our “real lives’ as well! (as real as social media is! lol) But it is nice to put a face on our She friends! I feel like being behind the screen, it is easier to be more forthcoming and open, but we need to remove our masks and be willing to share our hearts as we are, where we are! May God keep us growing and searching for Him and to be a light for him, Thank you Lord!

    Also praying for anxiety to flee my dear friends Lord. You know them, you see them. Let them feel your power!

    Victoria E- You must be getting pretty close?!!! I am so excited and feel we are all on this journey with you, holding your hands (like red rover!) When is your due date?

    Have a great Sunday!

    Dear sisters in Christ. My daughter introduced me to SRT back in 2013. The studies and your comments and prayers have been a part of my morning devotional for many years. I rarely post as it takes me a long time to write out any responses or prayer requests (this has taken me two days!). Today, I am asking for prayers for my country of Canada. The Prime Minister is using excessive force against peaceful protesters, many of whom are Christians, in our nations capital. Of even graver concern is that he is using this protest to implement measures of repression for the entire country which will give him dictatorial control. May the name of Jesus be exalted across Canada and the words from our national anthem “God keep our land, glorious and free” be proclaimed from sea to sea.

  18. Rachel says:

    Love this passage and JENNIFER loved how you phrased this: “When there is too much, He lifts and carries, when too little He provides.” SARAH D – May I encourage you to stick with a biblical counselor?? The worldview and counseling paradigms of the psychology world will likely be (somewhat) respectful of your beliefs, but they are not able to counsel your heart from a place of Truth and help with the root issues that might be at play. Having someone who can speak truth from a biblical perspective and not just offer behavior modification is worth the extra money. xo

    Jennifer Loves Jesus. You related a memory about an empty birthday piñata a couple of days ago that I found delightful. I smile and feel so empathetic with your mother each time I think of it. Thanks for sharing.

  20. Cesley Roberts says:

    I believe this is true and I have to remind myself of this daily, but my anxiety and negative thoughts has been pretty bad over the last week, but I know God is in control. Prayers for all! Please pray for me!

  22. Mari V says:

    Kelly (NEO) Thank you for your faithful prayers for everyone here.

  23. Jennifer Loves Jesus says:

    Fear not. God is with me when I pass through waters, and when I walk through the fire. I remember water was a symbol used to describe chaos in the ancient world. And as I memorize these words in Isaiah 43 full of promise and hope, the truth is sinking in. The larger story is coming to light. I belong to the Creator and King of this world and eternity beyond. He has called me, along with all believers, by name. Each day I wake wanting more of Him. Each day holds me with His abundance of peace, ready for acceptance. I will feel the heat and know I could drown in the chaos, but my Savior is always with me, so I will not drown, or be overtaken by burning pain. When there is too much, He lifts and carries, when too little He provides. I bow to my Creator, I swear allegiance to my King. Righteousness and strength are found only in the Lord (Isa 45).

  24. Jalissa Shackleford says:

    Have a great Sunday everyone!
