When thou passest through the waters, I will be with thee; and through the rivers, they shall not overflow thee: when thou walkest through the fire, thou shalt not be burned; neither shall the flame kindle upon thee. Isaiah 43:2 KJV.
There are always threats to life and comfort in our contemporary society, what with man-made disasters like the waning Covid-19 pandemic that literally threatened to wipe out the whole of human race couple of months back, the economic challenges that resulted from the scourge and the new rise in violent crimes and blood letting across our endangered globe. Threatening human existence across the more is the new phenomenon of misrule occasioned by graft and greed among leaders of nations who took oath to protect and provide for their subjects, but have turned out to be unflinching vampires sucking the very life-blood of the hapless people they swore to protect. The masses of the people find it very difficult to put food on their table and to have even the minutest form of comfort. The situation becomes helpless and hopeless; but the Lord says He will not let you sink.
Mary McKee and the Genesis sang “He (God) never said we’ll only see sunshine; He never said there’ll be no rain. He only promised a heart full of singing. That’s the reason Jesus came.”
No matter the threats and discomfort you are experiencing now, you are neither helpless nor hopeless. God is right there with you, and will never let you sink. The very fact that you are reading this article right now is a proof that you are not hopeless. As dangerously as a storm may rage, it will eventually give way to a dazzling sunshine. As threateningly a hurricane may spread its havoc, it will eventually give way to a soothing breeze. James Ene Henshaw in his “This is our Chance” wrote, “A mighty wind shall blow, a great rain shall fall; but out of destruction there will be calm.”
All you should ask God for is the grace to remain calm in this present storm. There is an assurance of the rainbow at the other side of the storm. Weeping may endure in the night but joy comes in the morning (Psalm 30:5). Jehovah will never let you sink.
