Isaiah 41:10 fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God; I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.
Do you sometimes feel weak, disappointed, alone, uneasy? Don’t worry, you’re not alone. According to some research on the topic of anxiety, some 40 million adults over the age of 18 struggle with anxiety and anxiety disorders in the U.S. alone. That’s a lot of people feeling depressed, anxious and afraid. If anxiety reigns in our lives, it has been proven that anxiety can lead to other sicknesses and diseases because the body and its immunity has been compromised from the outside in.
This simple verse from Isaiah says something to you and me that we should prescribe to our bodies, souls and minds like medicine to an ailment. Our Father in Heaven wants us to lean on Him for strength, support and assurance. In this verse alone there are 5 assurances for us from God himself:
1) I (God) am with you!
2) I am your God!
3) I will strengthen you!
4) I will help you!
5) I will uphold you with my righteous right hand
What I have found in my life is that every promise God gives to his people – He keeps it!
He loves us that much, and He does not want us to fail, despair, or doubt Him!
Are you at the end of your rope today? Are you lacking confidence, assurance, hope? God comes to us and says; “I am with you don’t be afraid!” Lean on Him, know that He is there for you through thick and thin…but faith is a two way street…you have to place it in His hands.
So go ahead, find comfort and peace in your crammed, crazy busy schedule today, by realizing this verse in your life…I dare you!
God bless you… so comforting to know HE never leaves or forsakes…
