Joy of My Heart with Anne Graham Lotz - February 27

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 protect those He loves from suffering or 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 Savior; . . . you are precious and honored in my sight, and . . . I love you” (Isa. 43:1–4, niv).
