When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and through the rivers, they shall not overflow you. When you walk through the fire, you shall not be burned; nor shall the flame kindle on you. (Isaiah 43:2 NIV)
Israel was released from their bondage in Egypt by the mighty hand of God. God made a way of escape. He separated the water and dried up the red sea, so that Israel may pass through it. They walked under the scorching heat of the desert while the Lord covered and protected them. God did all of these for Israel because they were loved by God. However, Israel did not trust God. They doubted His power, His wisdom – His love. Let us not doubt our Lord. Let us trust Him fully and obey Him.
