Day 13 - Saturday - January 22, 2022
Isaiah 43:2 (NLT)
“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.”
Our word for 2022 is THROUGH. We believe God is going to walk us through, we are going to follow through, and we will see breakthrough. When I was 9 years old, we took a family vacation to Colorado. Before this trip I got a brand new pair of basketball shoes. At 9 years old, these shoes obviously made me run faster, jump higher, and shoot better. During our vacation we went on an adventure. Our adventure took us to a river with a pretty strong current. To get where we needed to go, we had to go through some rough waters. I was not afraid because my dad was there. He was the strongest guy I knew. If my dad was with me in the river, it didn’t matter what the river was doing. I didn’t want to get my new shoes wet so I took them off. As I was crossing my shoes in one hand and my dad close to the other, I slipped. My dad grabbed me and got me through the troubled waters, but the river grabbed one of shoes. I was safe, but my shoe was lost. My shoe was gone, but I made it through.
You might be walking through troubled waters in your life right now. I believe we all are walking in troubled water. Are your hands full with items, past experiences, failures, insecurities, or relationships? Those things cause imbalance in our lives. Maybe what’s in your hands as you walk through the water needs to stay in the water. As you release the “stuff” in your hands your life will regain balance. With God’s steadfast hand you will make it through the water. You might be in troubled waters, but God will see you through!
Today’s Promise: God will get you through in 2022!
