When you go through deep waters,
I will be with you.
When you go through rivers of difficulty,
you will not drown.
When you walk through the fire of oppression,
you will not be burned up;
the flames will not consume you.
For I am the Lord, your God,
the Holy One of Israel, your Savior.
Lord, you alone are my portion and my cup;
you make my lot secure.
No matter what circumstances we face in life, we know that in Christ we have assurance that He is always with us providing us just what we need for that moment.
