“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 (NIV)
We have chosen a verse that has a promise for you from the writings of the prophet Isaiah. It was given to God’s people in Isaiah’s time but is also a promise for us today and every day. The promise sounds like words of a loving parent who senses the needs of its child. And of course that’s what they are. They are words of a Father in Heaven – our Father if we have accepted Jesus as our Savior because we have been brought into God’s family. When we need help in times when we might be fearful, if we reach out our hand, He will hold it up for us. That means that God has control of the things of our life today. He will guide us and even give us the strength we need to get through the difficult circumstances. Recognize today that God is holding up our right hand and giving us what we need because He is the Lord our God and that is what he does. We do not have to be afraid we can trust Him instead.
