Do not fear, for I am with you; Do not look anxiously about you, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, surely I will help you, Surely I will uphold you with my righteous right hand. Isaiah 41:10
What powerful statements of support from our Heavenly Father, Who not only has the power to be everything we need but also has the desire to be there for us in our time of need. When we look at the reasons for his imperative statements, we understand why He commanded us to not fear or look anxiously around us. We have no need to fear when we realize that God “never leaves us nor forsakes us” as He promised in Deuteronomy 31:6. We don’t need to worry and frantically look around us for help because God Himself is our personal Savior. He is Jehovah Jireh, our Provider. He is our Rock, our Fortress, our Deliverer, the One Who Strengthens us supernaturally when we feel we cannot go on. The right hand in Biblical times represented the place of power. The one who was next to the ruler in power was seated on the ruler’s right hand. God’s power is as righteous and holy as He is. When God is our supporter, we can go forward into each and every situation, confident that He will supply our every need and go with us every step of the way.
Will you let Him be your Support today?
