Isaiah 41:10 is my favorite verse because I have experienced it. I have been afraid more times than I would like to admit. The Lord has reassured me that he is with me — in every sense of that word. He lives within us. He is “for” us. He will never leave. Nothing that others do nor any circumstance can separate us from him.
I have experienced weakness and I have cried out for help in desperate situations. I have needed to be told over and over again by the Lord to not be afraid. I have needed his reassurance. He is our God. He is Sovereign. He has ultimate power and authority.
When we need the Lord’s strength and help, he promises to not just stand by and let us falter but to strengthen and help us. The Lord reiterates, “be assured I will help you.” We can count on his help — it is a promise!
His righteous right hand is a symbol of his justice, power, victory and salvation. That is the hand that holds us. The God of the universe, the Creator and sustainer of all is our Lord. Our Father is the One who holds us.
No wonder he tells us not to fear anything. Honestly, there is no need to!
I often share this verse with others. I hope you will think about doing the same. It may be the promise or reassurance someone needs today.
Lord, thank you for promising to be with us, to strengthen us, to help us in our weaknesses. We need you and thank you for your promise and reassurance. May the depth of this truth touch our hearts and not just our heads. Bring to mind who we could share this verse with today. In Jesus’ name, amen.
Go Deeper — Write down Isaiah 41:10 and keep it in your wallet. Ask God to bring someone to mind who could use this verse as encouragement and then share it with them, in person if possible.
