“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.” Isaiah 41:10
By: Alana Mills
“Be Brave,” we tell ourselves. “Don’t let anyone see you cry.” There are times when we feel the need to put on a brave face and not let the world see that we are afraid. We don’t want others to see that we are terrified of what’s going on around us.
What’s wonderful about God is that He acknowledges that there are times when we will feel fearful, yet He does not stop there. He lets us know that there is no need to fear because He is with us. We do not have to be dismayed by our circumstances because He is God. Once we have given our lives to Him, He is able to help us handle anything that may come our way.
The Lord would remind you today that He is for you, not against you. In every battle, He is fighting on your side. There are more for you than those against you because your God is king. He is always victorious and always watching over you. While God may not do things the way we want them done, or when we had hoped, we are assured that He will sustain and keep us with His own right hand as He unfolds His plan in our lives. God has made you a promise to be with you and strengthen you so you have no need to fear, and He will keep it! God’s word is good.
