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. (Isaiah 41:10)
In uncertain times, the best place to live is within the boundaries of God’s promises. Imagine an earthly father telling his toddler child, “Don’t worry. I’m right here with you. I will help you. I will take care of you.” Would that toddler wonder, Is he telling me the truth? Of course not! He would trust Daddy.
Similarly, how much more can we trust our heavenly Father? Infinitely more!
Do not for a moment, as Charles Spurgeon said, “indulge the thought that He has outpromised Himself.” God’s strength is unmatched, His power unrivaled, His integrity unequaled. He can easily accomplish all that He has promised and far more if necessary. And He will.
Trust Him. Take Him at His Word. He is with you. He will strengthen you. He will uphold you.
