“10 So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.”
The paraphrase in The Message reads “Don’t panic, I’m with you. There no need for fear for I am your God. I’ll give you strength. I’ll help you. I’ll hold you steady, keep a firm grip on you”.
I am God. I am with you. Think about those words. I am God. I am with you.
What could be more awesome? He is God, creator of everything, omniscient, omnipresent, pure love, perfect, and He tells us He is with us. Always. Do not be afraid He commands. Do not be afraid.
Fear, doubt, uncertainty, all are Satan’s friends, questioning the place of God in your life.
He tells us ‘I am with you”, always. The Holy Spirit in you, the words of Christ, the creation of God.
He not only gives us strength to wage war against Satan, he continues to strengthen us, and help us. Let’s see – in this corner, God and me, in that corner, the world and it’s worries and ways. Who’s gonna’ win that fight?
Know that God is with you, holding you in His righteous hand, holding you steady, keeping a firm grip on you. Reject the fear, uncertainty and doubt of Satan’s lies.
