Isaiah 41 makes it clear that God is not through with Israel. Enemies will come against her, but God will protect His chosen people.
Verse 10 tells us that God is with Israel.
God reminds them that He is the great I AM. The God of creation, love, mercy, and grace.
God takes action by stating “I will…”.
God gives Israel six reasons not to fear or be dismayed.
1) I am with thee
2) I am thy God
3) I will strengthen thee
4) I will help thee
5) I will uphold thee
6) With my righteousness
It is comforting to know that the same God that protected Israel is the same God that protects believers in Christ today. The Holy Spirit resides in each believer. He is our comforter.
Thank God today for His watch care over us.
