In our darkest places, we discover that God is our support, and what God says through the prophet Isaiah is true: “When you pass through the waters, I will be with you. … Do not fear, for I am with you” (vv. 2, 5). Our Lord helps us in difficult times not because we have helped ourselves, but because we are precious in God’s sight, honored by God and eternally loved.
- Isaiah 43:1 - 7
