I love this Scripture for many reasons. First, God's affirming that He created me and formed me - that's a personal God talking, not a God who's far away and doesn't care about what's going on with me. Second, He's assuring me that I don't need to fear because He's redeemed me, saved me, called me, and I. AM. HIS! That's huge! I'm God's daughter! Third, He's with me - always...in the water, in the river, in the fire, in the flame. He promises they won't overwhelm me, burn me, or consume me. Why? Because He's walking before me and with me (Deuteronomy 31:6, 8)! Last, He says that I am precious, honored, and loved! What more could I want?
