God’s promise to his children, from 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.
13 For I, the LORD your God, hold your right hand; it is I who say to you, “Fear not, I am the one who helps you.”
14 I am the one who helps you, declares the LORD; your Redeemer is the Holy One of Israel.
16 And you shall rejoice in the LORD; in the Holy One of Israel you shall glory.
When we’re following God’s will — praying, working, evangelizing, taking risks, reaching the culture, raising our families, facing sickness, disease and trouble, living the Christian life — He will be with us, holding our right hand, redeeming us once and always, helping us. We are not to fear. We are not to be dismayed. We are to trust. And in so doing, we will rejoice and we will glory in the Lord.
