FOR I AM THE LORD YOUR GOD WHO TAKES HOLD OF YOUR RIGHT HAND AND SAYS TO YOU, DO NOT FEAR; I WILL HELP YOU. Isaiah 41:13
This promise reminds the believer of how intimately and personally involved in our lives God is. God takes our hand, just as a parent takes the hand of their child to reassure them. God want us to know that everything will be okay, that He is beside us and will give us His help…we will get through this together…that’s the kind of assurance God is giving us…His personal assurance and promise that He is with us and helping us.
This promise reminds us of God’s tenderness towards us. He has compassion for us. He takes delight in us. He knows we need his help and companionship as we face the difficult things in life. He doesn’t turn us away in our moment of need. When we are tempted to question where God is in the midst of our struggles and difficulties, we need to remember that God is beside us and walking with us… even if we can’t feel His presence…our faith and trust must be based on more than feelings. We must believe and trust God’s promises to us. They are Living Water when we feel our spirit is dry and parched. His promises are The Daily Bread we need to nourish our spirits and give us strength. We have God’s promise that He will help us. It’s up to believe it and receive it.
