The Lord has chosen you as His servant! He has not rejected you! You don’t have to fear for God is with you. We are instructed not to be dismayed (overwhelmed) for God is with us. He will strengthen us and help us. He will uphold us with His righteous right hand! The right hand of God symbolizes strength, authority, power, blessing, sovereignty and ruler-ship. When God promises to uphold us with His right hand he is promising His authority, power, sovereignty, blessing and ruler-ship. Nothing can stand against God’s outstretched hand toward His people. If you are going through hard times, a time when you feel overwhelmed turn to God and remember His promise in Isaiah 41:9-13. He says, “I will strengthen you and help your; I will uphold you, all who rage against you will surely be ashamed and disgraced; those who oppose you will be as nothing and perish. Those who wage war against you will be as nothing at all. For I am the Lord, your God, who takes hold of your right hand and says to you, Do not fear; Do not be afraid.”
Take heart and place your hope in God who changes not and who is the same yesterday, today and forever (Hebrews 13:8). We can trust Him. He does not lie. Numbers 23:19 “God is not a man, that He should lie, Nor a son of man, that He should repent. Has He said, and will He not do it? Or has He spoken and will He not make it good and fulfill it? We serve an awesome and faithful God who loves us and only wants good for us. So today in the middle of your trail, remember, God is for you, He will not leave you and He will uphold you with His mighty, righteous right hand!
If you do not know the Lord God as your personal savior and friend you can ask Him today to be a part of your life, to forgive you and He will. Then the promises above will be for you as well. God loves you and is wanting to be there for you. He says, “For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans to give you hope and a future.” Jeremiah 29:11
