“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

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 . . .He will hold you by the hand
against sin;
the world;
and against your own evil heart.

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;
to pray;
and fight;
He will help you to avoid the snares;
to despise the vanities of this poor world.
Ah, my fellow-sinner, this help is promised, because you need it all.

What a world of temptation, sin, and danger

what a world of darkness and confusion you live in! There is none to help you, none to teach you, none to lead you on your way–but Jehovah Jesus. Do not be afraid! He will hold you by the hand, saying, “I will help you!

Do you say,
“The way is long, and I am weary.
and 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?”

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)
