For I the LORD thy God will hold thy right hand, saying unto thee,
Fear not; I will help thee. — Isaiah 41:13 (KJV)
Life crashes in and we wish we could be children again and have
someone to take care of us and protect us. Into our confused and
chaotic world, God's promise comes to us once again. Like a loving
parent with a frightened child, God reaches out and takes hold of
our hand and comforts us with his precious words: "Don't be afraid.
I'm here with you. I will help." Even when he seems distant, the
echo of this thought can remind us that we are never alone or
forgotten (cf. Heb. 13:5-6).
Abba Father, whose presence and help are always near, please help me
have faith that you are there. I confess that at certain points in
my life, you have seemed distant and I have felt alone. Please
remind me through your Spirit of your nearness and your care. In my
moments of struggle and doubt, please make your presence known. In
Jesus' name I pray. Amen.
