Chapter-a-Day Isaiah 43

Danger. "Don't be afraid, I've redeemed you. I've called your name. You're mine. When you're in over your head, I'll be there with you. When you're in rough waters, you will not go down. When you're between a rock and a hard place, it won't be a dead end— Because I am God, your personal God, The Holy of Israel, your Savior." Isaiah 43: 1b-3a (MSG)

I'm in over my head…because I chose to jump in the deep end.

I'm in rough waters…because I dismissed the dark clouds on the far horizon.

I'm between a rock and a hard place…because I just had to check out what was over the edge of the cliff.

Despite my willfulness, in spite of my foolishness, undeterred by my senseless choices, God is there to protect, to save, and to guide.

  1. It wasn’t that I asked that much from you.
    I didn’t expect expensive presents.
    But you didn’t even do the minimum—
    so stingy with me, so closefisted.
    Yet you haven’t been stingy with your sins.
    You’ve been plenty generous with them—and I’m fed up.
    Ouch. I hear ya God. I know you’re talking to me. I’m sorry…….Why does life get so busy that I can’t give the proper focus and due to God? Why do I use the previous statement as an excuse? Thank you God for forgiving me and giving me chance after chance.
