Today’s Promise

Isaiah 41:10

Do not fear, for I am with you; do not be afraid, for I am your God. I will strengthen you; I will help you; I will hold on to you with My righteous right hand


 

Psychologist tell us we are born with only two fears; the fear of falling and the fear of loud noises. Every other fear is learned. Unfortunately, when it comes to fear, we are pretty good learners.

In this verse, God commands you not to live in fear. Fear is confessing that God is not in control. It assumes that God is not watching over you. God gives you the command, but then gives you five reasons why you shouldn’t be afraid.

First
You don’t have to be afraid because God is with you. How can you walk in fear and be convinced that God is with you?

Second
He is your God. The creator God is your God. You know Him, and He knows you. You are in a relationship with the living God.

Third
He is strengthening you. God’s power is flowing through you. How can you ever fear failing when God is strengthening you.

Four
He is helping you. It seems like an unfair advantage, but as a child of God, God is helping you in every area of your life.

Finally
He is upholding you. This is the picture of a father holding His child’s hand. Any fear his little girl is feeling is swept away as her father takes her hand. God’s righteous right hand is upholding you.

Today, live fearlessly because your God is with and strengthening you.

Let’s look at that promise one more time.

Do not fear, for I am with you; do not be afraid, for I am your God. I will strengthen you; I will help you; I will hold on to you with My righteous right hand. – Isaiah 41:10

Confess this with me.

I will not fear today because God is with me.
I will not fear because the creator God is my God.
I will not live in fear today because God is strengthening me
I will not live in fear today because God is helping me.
I will not live in fear today because God is holding my hand and lifting me up

In Jesus Name,
Amen
