Isaiah 41:13-For I, the Lord your God, will hold your right hand, saying to you, “Do not fear; I will help you.”
The Lord our God declares that He is our God and is always with us. He is there in the good, bad, ugly, fearful, unknown, peace, joyful, happy, sad, uncertain and every minute of the day, regardless if we feel His presence or not.
Believe it or not but even when others disappoint or hurt us, come against us, say painful and hurtful things about us, God is there. It is the Lord our God who promises to take care of His children.
We are reminded in this text why we should not fear, but instead, trust God in ALL our ways. Let’s listen to why the writer of this text tells us not to fear.
(1) The Lord our God is God for He says, “I, The Lord your God, (2) I will strengthen you when you are feeling weak, (3) My help for your is guaranteed, (4) I will uphold you with my right hand.
To sum up this text, God says “do not fear” for He is the Lord our God who is our very present helper.
People of God fear not for God is with you, fear not for God is your God, fear not for God is your strength, fear not for God is your help, fear not for God will uphold you.
Fear is crippling so let it go!!!
Lord, you are my strength! Strength like no other! Thank You Lord!
When we are weak, the Lord our God is strong!
