00439 - Fire

In its destructiveness, fire can leave behind immeasurable loss, heartache, and devastation. Properties, memories, and sometimes even lives can be consumed by its ferocity. Yet, the Bible provides solace even in the aftermath of such calamities, reminding us that hope and recovery are ahead.

In Isaiah 43:2 (TLB), God brings comfort by saying, "When you go through deep waters and great trouble, 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."

While the verse metaphorically refers to life's trials, it aptly applies to literal fires too. As believers, we can hold onto the promise that God is with us, even amidst the smouldering ruins. Recovery, though daunting, is possible when we lean on God's strength, trusting that He can bring complete restoration.

Quote Devastation is temporary; God’s compassion is permanent.


Thank You for the reassurance of this verse and Your compassion Lord. Amen.
