HE IS OUR GOD

Isaiah 41:10

New Living Translation (NLT)

 10 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.

This verse is so awesome. For me this verse has so much meaning. Look at everything GOD is promising to us. I am with you...that's GOD is with us! HIS presence...GOD himself is with us..."you and me!!!" We have "nothing" to fear! WOW! Now that's something to get excited about! If this verse had no other promise in it, it would still be awesome. But...read the rest of it. HE is our GOD! We don't have to be discouraged...downtrodden...disheartened...depressed...because HE is our GOD and we are HIS children! GOD will give us strength...help us to get through whatever our situation is. Life happens to all of us everyday. Sometimes...it's really bad things. Things that no one "but GOD" can do anything about and sometimes...HE doesn't. HE just allows life to continue to happen to us. We don't know the reasons, and really it wouldn't matter anyway. What we have to remember is, it's going to be okay because GOD will give us the strength we need...when we need it...to get through it all.

If you have a relationship with the LORD you can be assured of these promises.

Another great promise that goes along with this verse is...

Deuteronomy 31:8

New International Version 1984 (NIV1984)
 
8 The LORD himself goes before you and will be with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged.”

Again, our FATHER is telling us..."Don't be afraid, don't be discouraged". Why?...because I...the LORD...am with "you!!" HE will "never" abandon us! We will never be alone!

We are all truly loved by an amazing...awesome...loving GOD!

Hi Chelle - what I love about those verses is that He is right there beside us and He will never leave us. If only our eyes were open to that, I doubt we would fear the way we do. Great post, great encouragement!
God bless sweet friend

What an absolutely awesome God we serve, He cares about us sooooo much.
He's got us covered!

Oh for a thousand tongues to praise Him, every moment of the day.

I too love those verses, Chelle.

Isaiah 41:10 is what helped me so much 5 years ago when I was led to my pond. And it was also so helpful when He was pulling me out of comfort zones. Just like someone else I know ;)
Let's always hold on to that Righteous Right Hand and go where He leads!
