“For I am the LORD, your God, who takes hold of your right hand and says to you: Do not fear; I will help you. Do not be afraid, O worm Jacob, O little Israel, for I myself will help you,” declares the LORD, your Redeemer, the Holy One of Israel.” Isaiah 41:13-14
Wherever the Lord leads us—He will support us; nor shall the difficulties of the way, or the weakness we feel—be too much for us. His hand is stretched out to us, and it is for faith to lay hold of it and proceed, confident of divine assistance.
His omnipotent arm is the protection of His people in danger—and the strength of His people in weakness. He is “an ever-present help in times of trouble”. He is a God at hand. Are you weak, or in difficulty? Plead His Word; it is plain, positive, and sure. He cannot lie. He will not deceive. His strength is made perfect, and is glorified in your weakness. Fear not, underneath you are His everlasting arms!
He CAN help—for He is omnipotent. He WILL help—for He has given you His Word. “Trust in the Lord at all times; yes, trust in the Lord forever, for in the Lord Jehovah is everlasting strength!” That strength is promised to you, and will be employed for you in answer to prayer.
Why then are you so fearful? Why cast down? He says, “I myself will help you!“
