Don’t be afraid, for I am with you. Don’t be discouraged, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you. I will hold you up with my victorious right hand”  Isaiah 41:10 (NLT)

It’s interesting to think about how God made us with the variety of emotions that we experience.

In light of this verse, it’s almost as if “fear” is our reminder that He is walking beside us, and “discouragement” is our time to be convinced that He is our personal, all powerful God.

The second half of this verse is exhorting us to lean heavily on HIS strength. He doesn’t want us to take matters into our own hands, instead place them into His ‘victorious right hand’!


Heavenly Father, thank you that You long to take care of me. I give You my fears. Carry me through my discouragements. In Jesus’ Name. Amen.
