“Do not fear [anything], for I am with you; Do not be afraid, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, be assured I will help you; I will certainly take hold of you with My righteous right hand [a hand of justice, of power, of victory, of salvation].’(Isaiah 41:10)
“Don’t panic. I’m with you. There’s no need to fear for I’m your God. I’ll give you strength. I’ll help you. I’ll hold you steady, keep a firm grip on you.”
Contemporary English Version:
“Don't be afraid. I am with you. Don't tremble with fear. I am your God. I will make you strong, as I protect you with my arm and give you victories.”
Good News Translation:
“Do not be afraid—I am with you! I am your God—let nothing terrify you! I will make you strong and help you; I will protect you and save you.”
Beloved, God is your protector, and only Him you should be afraid of, not a slavish but a reverent fear. See, 'If God be for you, who can be against you?' What higher consolation can you desire than the assurance that God is with you to protect you.? Therefore, be calm, and never be under apprehension from anyone or situation. God is able to preserve and give you strength, courage and enablement to bear all your trials. His right hand is ever faithful, reliable, dependable and will securely hold and lift you. He is your very present and unfailing help whenever you need Him.
