I Am With You

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 righ hand. (Isaiah 41:10 ESV)

Let me ask you something:

  1. What do you fear doing today?
  2. What are you afraid to happen today or in the near future?
  3. Where do you base your deicisions?
  4. What are your considerations?
  5. Who gives you assurance?
And a lot more could be ask, but today's word, is very encouraging and in fact it's a promise that the God of the universe made to you. It's a powerful promise at the same time reassurance. 

We often decide on the basis of our fears, that would mean considering our past experience of failure, disappointment, betrayal of trust, breach of contracts, failed plans, etc. And when we try to venture on something new, something we want, and something God placed in our hearts, we tend to base our not doing something on the past, but we know we're not going anywhere if we don't do something. I believe God wants to speak to you today and say "My child, Fear not for I am with you."


It's easy to justify our inaction with difficulties. Often times, we quit because we're just tired, and yeah, it's just so hard. Even God knows, that it's sometimes hard, sometimes difficult to achieve but he did not miss to assure you of something for that too, as he said, "My child, I will strengthen you."


You might also say, "It's me against the world. I am all alone in this. I wanted to do it, but I just can't do it because I am alone." Well, here's His word for you, He is personally volunteering to be your helper. It's clear in His word that He's saying "My child, I will help you."


Or, today you'd say, it's just that people don't look highly of it. In fact, people would say, it's a stupid decision, or it's not very wise to do. They don't see the worth or value of what you are going to do. Yet, your ultimate partner and creator says, "I will uphold you with my righteous right hand." When there's no one to support you, God says, "My Child, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand." And people will see, that what you took action of, was worth doing. Leave it to God. He will do it for you.

So, today, as you decide, remember these words of God in Isaiah 41:10. God bless you!

I'd love to know what you think of this post:
