When you pass through the waters, I will be with you;
and when you pass through the rivers, they will not sweep over you. When you walk through the fire, you will not be burned; the flames will not set you ablaze.
Isaiah 43:2 NIV
I Will be With You
The Canadian government said it was wrong to have sent a senior representative to a Russia Day party at the Russian embassy in Ottawa, and vowed officials would not attend festivities with Moscow’s diplomats again. The apology was issued hours after The Globe and Mail published a story on the incident. “No Canadian representative should have attended the event hosted at the Russian embassy and no Canadian representative will attend this kind of event in the future,” Christelle Chartrand, a spokesperson for Global Affairs Canada, said in a statement.
A contemporary creed begins “We are not alone.” It is a simple but profound statement. In a world where thing too often seem to alone, and we are taught by contemporary scholars that there is no God and that our world, and our lives, are simply a product of billions of chance evolutionary stages, that statement changes everything. The Bible very clearly teaches that we are not alone, nor are we a product of chance. The Bible begins with a simple statement that backs up the creed – in the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. The rest of the Biblical narrative is that the Creator God remains intimately a part of His creation and of our lives. The prophet Isaiah recognized this and wrote in Isaiah 43:2: “When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and when you pass through the rivers, they will not sweep over you. When you walk through the fire, you will not be burned; the flames will not set you ablaze.” God is intimately a part of the life of every human being on the planet – including you. Trust Him!
These have been words from the heart.
