Tested and Tried

The Lord God speaks and there is no mistake. He loves and there is no end, for His love for you is everlasting! He will not hide Himself from you forever, neither will He forsake you at anytime. But as the heavens are high and the ocean are deep, so is the Lord God high above all things and His love for you deeper than the ocean.

4 Fear not, for you will not be ashamed; be not confounded, for you will not be disgraced; for you will forget the shame of your youth, and the reproach of your widowhood you will remember no more. 5 For your Maker is your husband, the Lord of hosts is His name; and the Holy One of Israel is your Redeemer, the God of the whole earth He is called.  Isaiah 54:4-5

But He will take you by the hand, He will lead you to places you could not have imagined. He will strengthen your resolve, lift you up on high for all to see, holding you fast so that you will not be moved, and protect you from harm at every turn.

6 For the Lord has called you like a wife deserted and grieved in spirit, like a wife of youth when she is cast off, says your God. 7 For a brief moment I deserted you, but with great compassion I will gather you. 8 In overflowing anger for a moment I hid my face from you, but with everlasting love I will have compassion on you,” says the Lord, your Redeemer. Isaiah 54:6-8

He has tested and tried you, purified your heart and soul as through fire. As gold is tested and made pure, and as silver is purified in the flame 7 times, you have been found pure and worthy to possess His name.

9 “This is like the days of Noah to me: as I swore that the waters of Noah should no more go over the earth, so I have sworn that I will not be angry with you, and will not rebuke you. 10 For the mountains may depart and the hills be removed, but my steadfast love shall not depart from you, and my covenant of peace shall not be removed,” says the Lord, who has compassion on you. 

11 “O afflicted one, storm-tossed and not comforted, behold, I will set your stones in antimony, and lay your foundations with sapphires. 12 I will make your pinnacles of agate, your gates of carbuncles, and all your wall of precious stones. 13 All your children shall be taught by the Lord, and great shall be the peace of your children. 14 In righteousness you shall be established; you shall be far from oppression, for you shall not fear; and from terror, for it shall not come near you. Isaiah 54:9-14

You will forget the hurt, struggle, hardship, and pain of your past. Before your very eyes He will do this and you will be astounded!
