“Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness…For I the Lord thy God will hold thy right hand, saying unto thee, Fear not; I will help thee.”
Earlier this year, we visited this chapter in Isaiah. We discussed the Truths of verses 8-10, which remind us that we are chosen, called, and comforted. Praise God for the times when He comforts us!
We find the reason for that comfort in the latter part of verse 10. God upholds us by the Right Hand of His righteousness. Who sits at the right hand of God the Father? His Son, Jesus Christ! It is through Him that we are upheld and comforted when we are fearful and dismayed. It is by Him that we are strengthened and helped.
He reminds us of this Truth again in verse 13… “Fear not; I will help thee.”
What is happening when He speaks these Words and reminds us of the comfort He brings? He is holding our right hand!
Have you ever been in the middle of despair and confusion only to seek the Lord and be overcome with the peace that passes all understanding? It is at that moment that the Lord holds our right hand and comforts us like only He can. Allow the Lord to take you by the right hand today and help guide you through the battle you are facing. Maybe no one understands, maybe no one even knows about it… but God does. He is working everything for your good, you need only be still, and allow Him to help you in your time of need.
Praise the Lord that His hand is never too busy to hold the hands of His children. Reach out to Him today. He will meet you right where you are. Because the Lord our God holds our right hand by His Right Hand, we can turn our fear into faith!
