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
Surely I am with you in the deep waters. As I have said in My Word, “When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and when you pass through the rivers, they will not sweep over you” (Isaiah 43:2). Indeed you are passing through this narrow place. Even now I am expanding you and enlarging you, broadening the path beneath your feet and bringing you into a wide, spacious place (Psalm 18:19).
I am bringing the increase. You are feeling the pressure of the expansion and stretching, but I am creating new wine skins out of you. I am propelling you forward; even as you feel the increase of pressure, know that you are advancing and moving forward in My Kingdom purposes.
I am taking you into new and uncharted territory, but you have nothing to fear; I am leading and guiding you every step of the way. Whichever way you go, you will hear a voice saying, “This is the way; walk in it” (Isaiah 30:21). Stay close to Me, and listen to that still small voice of Mine. Do not look to the right or to the left; keep your eyes solely on Me. I will continue to show you the way forward, even as I have said in My Word, “Call to me and I will answer you and tell you great and unsearchable things you do not know” (Jeremiah 33:3).
Refuse to retreat, nor look to what was once comfortable or familiar, for I am taking you by a way that you have not previously known. This new way will require one hundred percent of your trust, obedience, and surrender. However, you can be confident that My plans for your life are good (Jeremiah 29:11).
I am bringing you into a season of increase and overflow, as I lead you into a land flowing with milk and honey (Exodus 3:17). You shall recover all of the spoils, and your victory is assured! I am with you in the deep waters, so walk forward in confidence and do not look back.

A Personal Note and Update on Living With Confidence:
I just wanted to thank you for following my blog. It is my honor and privilege to bring forth these prophetic words of the Lord to you. This has truly been an amazing journey for me, as I had stepped out several years ago in obedience to the Lord by starting up this blog and sharing the words that He has spoken to me.
The Lord continues to amaze me by His faithfulness. Living With Confidence is in a season of growth and transition, and I am excited at all that the Lord is doing with this ministry. I have recently felt led to add a ‘donate’ button for those who may be desiring to sow into LWC. As I have previously stated, it is my absolute honor and privilege to have the opportunity to minister to you and bring forth words from the Lord. There is not, and never will be, a financial charge for the prophetic words. I simply want to be obedient to the leading of the Holy Spirit and give those who may be feeling led to sow into this ministry the opportunity to do so. Your gifts are received with gratitude and appreciation, as we move forward and expand to reach even more people.
I pray God’s continued blessing and encouragement over you all.
In Christ’s Love,
