Isaiah 43 v 1 & 2
But now, this is what the LORD says - he who created you, Jacob, he who formed you, Israel:
“Do not fear, for I have redeemed you; I have summoned you by name; you are mine.
When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and when you pass through the
rivers, they will not sweep over you.
When you walk through the fire, you will not be burned; the flames will not set you
There is something very intimate about saying to someone you love, ‘You are mine’.
It has an air of possessiveness and pride, dirty words in most civilised company and yet when
it is said by someone who loves you unconditionally, someone who would always put your
wellbeing first, someone who would die for you, then it is transformed into words of power
and love because it carries no threat.
Many of the messages in Isaiah speak of God’s love for His children throughout time, we are
all ‘Precious and honoured in [His] sight.’ (v.4) and we can know that whatever may come our
way God will be with us. Note that Isaiah says ‘when’ you pass through the water and the fire,
not ‘if’, God isn’t telling us that we can avoid the difficult, unpleasant and dangerous parts of
living, just that He will not ask us to confront these trials alone.
