Do not fear; I will help you…

(George Mylne, “Fear Not!” 1854)

“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, …for I Myself will help you! declares the LORD, your Redeemer, the Holy One of Israel!” Isaiah 41:13-14

What is more helpless than a child without its mother’s hand! Reader, what is more helpless than you without Christ! You can neither stand nor walk alone; but “God, who takes hold of your right hand, says to you: Do not fear; I will help you!”

He will help you . . .
against sin;
against Satan;
against the world; …

He will help you . . .
when you are weary;
when you are downcast;
in the time of trial; and
in the hour of temptation.

He will help you to understand;
He will help you to pray;
He will help you to fight;
He will help you to avoid the snares;
He will help you to despise the vanities of this poor world. …

Jehovah Jesus says- Do not be afraid! He will hold you by the right hand, saying, “I will help you!”

Do you say, “The way is long — and I am weary. The road is dark — and I have no light. Temptations are many — how shall I resist them? I need grace — where can I find it? Oh, how shall I persevere?”

Afflicted soul! …
Lift up your eyes to the hills, from whence comes your help. Your help comes from the Lord, who made Heaven and earth. Happy is he who has the God of Jacob for his help, whose hope is in the Lord his God. Fear not! (Psalm 121, Psalm 146:5)
