God Will Help Us

Isaiah 41:10

Fear not, for I am with you

Have you ever been going through something that seems so huge that you didn't know how you were going to make it through?

The children of Israel understood completely what it meant to feel overwhelmed and small. Their perpetual disobedience had resulted in punishment. God had taken His favor from them and had given them over to their enemies. But...

Even though they were to suffer the consequences of their actions, God wanted them to know that He had not forsaken them.

‘You are My servant,
I have chosen you and have not cast you away:
Fear not, for I am with you;
Be not dismayed, for I am your God.
I will strengthen you,
Yes, I will help you,
I will uphold you with My righteous right hand.’

Be not dismayed, for I am your God

God knows our human tendency is to fear and get worried about things that are out of our control. Because of this He gives us words of comfort.

He's saying, "Hey, don't be afraid, I've got this. I'm in charge and if you knew Me you'd know that I am God".

I will strengthen you

God knows that our frailty is not enough to get us through this life. It's not enough when difficulties and stressful situations come. But He promises to strengthen us. He will add His power to ours. And then? Then, we can move mountains.

Yes, I will help you

"Yes." He affirms. "I will help you." One thing every Christian should know is that God is and on-time God. It doesn't matter what situation we find ourselves in, God always helps us at just the right time.

I will uphold you with My righteous right hand

This is God saying is, "Look, I'm going hold you up. I'm going to use my right hand. My victorious  right hand. I've never lost a battle yet." 

God Will Help Me

What I love about this promise is that it's one that we can claim every day. God has chosen us and because of that, there is no way that He will leave us to struggle through our difficulties on our own. 

Personal Study

Think back to a time in your life when God has showed up right on time. Find a psalm (or just a few verses) that you could use for encouragement in times of difficulties.
