Isaiah 43:1-2 ” Fear not, for I have redeemed you; I have summoned you by name; you are Mine. 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. “

Right now as America is in the middle of protests, riots, looting, and vandalism across our land, a new fear has reared its ugly head.  With COVID 19, it was fear of the unknown, but with the onslaught of these violent public disturbances the fear has become much more personal in nature.  That’s why these verses in Isaiah are so important for us today.  We don’t need to dread, or be fearful of harm or danger because our God is not only our kinsman redeemer but also our avenger.  He is always with us even when we go through fire and water, bringing us to a place of abundance. (Psalm 66:12)  That’s because we are His treasured possession, (Deuteronomy 7:6) and He will fight for us; we need only to be still.(Exodus 14:14)
