“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.”
Isn’t it awesome that no matter our situation, we can always turn to God for guidance and comfort? And that to make things so easy peesy He left a big book of promises behind to help us? I sure think so.
Words can have enormous power and whether they lift up or tear down depends on the source. God’s words alway bring light and life, always bring hope.
It’s impossible to go through life and not be afraid. I seem to have made a career out of it at times, but the more I get to know God, the better I feel about letting go of things I can’t control. God’s promises have power and if that’s all we have to hold on to, well than that’s enough for me.
“For I, the Lord you God, will hold your right hand; Saying to you, Fear not, I will help you.”
