“Fear not for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God; I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.” Isaiah 41:10
God says to fear not and be not dismayed. How often do we follow that command? Not that often in my opinion. To often we give in to fear and forget His promises of strength, help, and Him upholding us during hard times.
God’s righteous right hand, His mighty works, His justice is never failing. When He says He will be your strength and help He means it. His promises always ring true and are always kept. Just as He promised the Israelites that He would bring them out of the desert and to a land of plenty. He keeps all of His promises to us. How amazing is that!
People may brake their promises and tell us lies but God does none of those things. He is true and righteous and honest. He is everything good and wonderful!
God promises that He is with us and not to be dismayed, to lose hope and be afraid or shaken. Because He is our Lord and God. He holds everything in His hands. Meaning He holds you as well and if you let Him, He promises to be your strength and help. To be your everlasting hope and happiness.
I know that this verse can seem so simple when we read it. Lots of times we may even think “Ok I get it” then move on. But do we really understand it? Do we really see all that God is promising?
Truly think about what this verse in Isaiah says and look deep inside and see what is going on in your heart. What do you feel? What do you hear it saying?
Is it saying I believe? or is it struggling to believe that what God promises is true? What stands out to you?
