“Fear not, for I am with you; Be not dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, yes, I will help you, I will uphold you with My righteous right hand.” Isaiah 41:10

What a wonderful promise. Do not fear, for God is always with you. He has made that declaration to every Christian. Even in your darkest moments, God will be there with you. Even in the valley of pain and confusion, God will be there. God never promised a perfect and happy life without any problems or trials (John 16:33) but He did promise He would be there to help us through them. This is great news!

“But now, thus says the Lord, who created you, O Jacob, and He formed you, O Israel: Fear not, for I have redeemed you; I have called you by your name; you are mine. When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and through the rivers, they shall not overflow you. When you walk through the fire, you shall not be burned, nor shall the flame scorch you.” Isaiah 43:1-2

We are important to God! He calls us by name. God lets us know that He created us, which gives us value. God lets us know that we are important and valuable. Because God finds us so valuable and important, He promises us that He will be with us through the rough waters and protect us when the fires of trouble overcome us. What an awesome promise!

When the difficulties of this world try to beat us down and try to destroy us, God is there and promises us He will help us through them. This is the promise and privilege of being a Christian.

“Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil; For You are with me; Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me.” Psalm 23:4

Fear is a dark shadow that traps us and imprisons us. It doesn’t have to be death, but it can be the fear of money and paying bills, or it can be someone at work or school that puts fear into your day. God did not promise us that life would be easy. He did not guarantee us a life without bullies and problems. But He did promise that whatever we go through, He will be there for us. He will help us through. This is a wonderful promise. This proves that we are not alone. We don’t have to travel this world alone. God Himself said He would be with us. That is totally awesome.
