The Lord Is My Rock – 12/19/20

Isaiah 41:10  “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.


Through the valleys of life, there are moments when our fear and doubt can feel and become so paralyzing. This happens when we continually lean on our own strength and understanding, while also putting hope and trust in the things of this world. In Isiah 41:10, God not only says, “Do not fear, for I am with you, but He also says He will strengthen us when we feel weak and will uphold us with his righteous right hand. In this verse, God explicitly wants us to know what He can and will do for us as His children. He knows that we cannot go through life alone. When trials and tribulations arise, we can rest assured that our God, who is sovereign, just, and perfect, is ready to provide His children with exactly what they need. The same hands that created the heavens and earth are the same hands that will uphold us in His righteousness.  


Let us pray that we would rest in God’s presence and continually look up for Godly wisdom and strength in every aspect of our lives.
