When, not if...

God's Word makes it clear that the life of a believer is not a walk in the park. However, He does promise to go through the "whens" with us. How many believers do not venture onto the path of adoption (or whatever ministry the Lord has placed deep in their hearts) because they are afraid of the "whens?"




"WHEN you go through the deep waters, I will be with you. WHEN you go through the rivers of difficulty, you will not drown. WHEN you walk through the fire of oppressions, you will not be burned up; the flames will not consume you. FOR I AM THE LORD, your GOD." Isaiah 43:2-3a


Will you let your life be filled with "WHENS" for the glory of the Lord?
"Do not tremble; do not be afraid. Did I not proclaim my purpose for you long ago? YOU are My witnesses-is there any other God? NO! There is no other Rock-not one!" Isaiah 44:8

Thanks for the reminder. The Lord has given me these verses during particularly difficult times in my life and I was so appreciative. It's all about trusting him!
