But now thus saith the Lord that created thee, O Jacob, and he that formed thee, O Israel, Fear not: for I have redeemed thee, I have called thee by thy name; thou art mine.
? 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.
? For I am the Lord thy God, the Holy One of Israel, thy Saviour: I gave Egypt for thy ransom, Ethiopia and Seba for thee.
? Since thou wast precious in my sight, thou hast been honourable, and I have loved thee: therefore will I give men for thee, and people for thy life….
? Thus saith the Lord , which maketh a way in the sea, and a path in the mighty waters;
? Which bringeth forth the chariot and horse, the army and the power; they shall lie down together, they shall not rise: they are extinct, they are quenched as tow….
? Behold, I will do a new thing; now it shall spring forth; shall ye not know it? I will even make a way in the wilderness, and rivers in the desert.
Isaiah 43:1-4, 16-17, 19 KJV
?Lord, we thank you for these priceless golden promises with which we can arm ourselves and safely navigate the waters of this New Year, 2020; knowing that You will be with us and all ours, as the Mighty Man of War, El Gibbor, with Your Hosts, to fight our battles and give us a safe and smooth passage through the year; so that we can be free to fulfill the *PURPOSE* for which You created us…. Blessed be Your Holy Name, in Jesus Name, Amen
