God’s Promise When You Need Of Courage

Daily God Walk for Thursday, February 23, 2012

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. – Isaiah 41:10

Most of us parents have had the occasion when we were shopping with our child beside us when something caught their attention and they wandered off. They gave no thought to being alone or lost, they were just following the object of their attention.

Then, all at once, they look around and there is no parent in sight. Fear grips them, they start crying and running frantically to find the parent who is their security.

We’ve all been there as parents, and we have all been there as adults too. We were just moving through life following the thing that had gotten our attention when all at once we realize that we are in a dangerous place and we are alone with no help in sight.

But there is help and protection. The Lord has said, “Do not fear, I am with you.” We must remember to look for him because he is there, wherever “there” is for you. Alone there is little we can do, but with God all things are possible.

Of course, not all of the dangers we face are the result of our own mistakes, but often danger comes to us from unexpected places and in unexpected times. It is in those times particularly that we must remember that God is with us and he will uphold us with his righteous hand.

In every circumstance of life we must remember to hold to the hand of the one who is never changing.

Prayer: Father, so often I am in difficult situations that leave me feeling alone and helpless. I need you to remind me that you are there, that you are with me. Help to remember that. In Your name, amen.
