Passage: Isaiah 41:10

Comfort

…I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness.

(ISAIAH 41:10)

How graciously and tenderly the LORD speaks to His people. Knowing that they shall encounter many fears in this life, HE quiets those fears with these words of comfort.

“I am with thee: Be not dismayed.” Here is the solid foundation of our confidence …His presence. He does not leave us to ourselves to face the trials of this world, the temptations of Satan, and the weakness of our flesh. “My presence shall go with thee, and I will give thee rest.” (LEVITICUS 26:12)

“For I am thy God.” The covenant GOD through CHRIST JESUS, whose word, love, and power can be depended upon. (ISAIAH 41:10)

“I will strengthen thee.” The psalmist writes, “For He knoweth our frame; and remembereth that we are dust.” (PSALM 103:14). As weak and frail creatures, how needful that we "be strengthened with might by His Spirit in the inner man." (EPHESIANS 3:16)

“Yea, I will help thee.” Knowing that His faithfulness is sure, we have confidence in His promise, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee. “So that we may boldly say, The LORD is my helper, and I will not fear what man shall do unto me.” (HEBREWS 13:5-6). In all our afflictions and temptations, we have His word that He shall support His elect.

“Yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness.” The believer is convinced that if GOD would leave him to his own ability and will, he would surely fall. How comforting to realize that we are those “Who are kept by the power of God through faith unto salvation ready to be revealed in the last time.” (1 PETER 1:5). “The eternal God is thy refuge, and underneath are the everlasting arms” (DEUTERONOMY 33:27). WHAT MORE DO WE NEED? We are upheld by CHRIST the Righteous, who is our Advocate with the Father and the Propitiation for our sins.
