Many people forget this, and are forever worrying about difficulties which they foresee in the future. They expect God is going to make the way plain and open before them, miles and miles ahead; whereas He has promised to do it only step by step as they may need.
You must get to the waters and into the floods before you can claim the promise. When God leads, take a step of faith. It may be feeble but it is a start; it is after all called ‘a step of faith’ – taking a step of courage during uncertain times. When you pass through the waters, God will be with you. When you pass through the rivers, they will not sweep over you and when you walk through the fire, God promises that you will not be burned.
He will help you in your every step; in every faith steps you take. Take hold of this promise.
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.
