“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.”Isaiah 41:10
There is so much comfort in that verse of Scripture! Isn’t that beautiful to know that ahead of time. No matter what 2010 will bring to us, God will uphold his children.
I have some idea of what is coming this year, and I know that on my own, there is not enough strength to bear it. Yet, I read this precious promise in Isaiah, and I know that God will help me. He will give me strength. He will even hold me up when I feel like collapsing under the weight of it all.
I’m so glad I got to know Him long ago. Long enough to see His working things out in the past. Long enough to know I can trust Him. Long enough to know I need not fear.
I hope you know Him like that, too.
