He goes with us

“He goes with us through the valley, the deep water, the furnace. He will never, absolutely never, leave us or forsake us.” [page 55]

Obviously, this isn’t her original thought. See:

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.

And

Deuteronomy 36:1

So be strong and courageous! Do not be afraid and do not panic before them. For theLord your God will personally go ahead of you. He will neither fail you nor abandon you.

Both verses are from the New Living Translation. The top quote is from Elisabeth Elliot’s book Keep a Quiet Heart.
