WHEN BAD THINGS HAPPEN

February 24, 2014

Monday   

Isaiah 43:2

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.

 

EXAMPLE

Thomas Edison’s manufacturing facilities in West Orange, N.J., were heavily damaged by fire one night in December, 1914. Edison lost almost $1 million worth of equipment and the record of much of his work. The next morning, walking about the charred embers of his hopes and dreams, the 67-year-old inventor said: “There is value in disaster. All our mistakes are burned up. Now we can start anew.”

– Alan Loy McGinnis

 

LESSON

No nation has ever passed through such deep and troublous waters as the Jewish people. No other people have walked through such fire of suffering and persecution as they have. The reason is clear, He said, “I am with thee.” As He is with Israel, so is He with the church.

No matter what the waters of life may hold or how raging the rivers may be, the child of God can rest in the promise: “I will be with thee.”

 

Memory Verse: 2 Peter 3:9
