I have preserved you, keeping you afloat amidst the waves and raging storm. I have allowed you to walk through the fire without being burned. I say to you, ‘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’ (Is. 43:2).

Your best days are just ahead of you,” says the Lord.
