God Is With Us!
Isaiah 41:10-14 New Living Translation (NLT) 10 Don’t be afraid, for I am with you. Don’t be discouraged, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you. I will hold you up with my victorious right hand. 11 “See, all your angry enemies lie there, confused and humiliated. Anyone who opposes you will die and come to nothing. 12 You will look in vain for those who tried to conquer you. Those who attack you will come to nothing. 13 For I hold you by your right hand—I, the Lord your God. And I say to you, ‘Don’t be afraid. I am here to help you. 14 Though you are a lowly worm, O Jacob, don’t be afraid, people of Israel, for I will help you. I am the Lord, your Redeemer. I am the Holy One of Israel.’
“I AM WITH YOU” He says. God is always with us, always beside us. He goes before us and prepares the way. Even when we don’t see Him, acknowledge Him, or follow Him, He is always watching us. He knows all that goes on in this world.
He is always with us. As I said in the last post His presence goes before us and stands behind us. He is always here.
Isaiah 41:10 states he also strengthens us and helps us. If we follow God, if we acknowledge His presence and choose to submit to His leading, He gives us power, strength, and wisdom to carry out the task before us.
He will also uphold us with His righteous right hand. This means to me that He holds us up. We cannot fall while we are in the hands of Almighty God. He has us and walks with us. He strengthen us, helps us, and holds us up so we don’t fall. He knows our weaknesses. And in our weakness He is strong. (see 2 Cor. 12:9-11) Therefore, we can stand in the face of difficulties. He can rest assured that everything will be okay. We can be confident that we will succeed. God will be there for us and hand us all our needs if we follow close to Him.
What a glorious promise in scripture!! We are empowered by His strength. And it keeps going, and going, and going. He never runs out of strength. And neither will we. Be strong, my friend. Trust in God and His power will rest upon you.
