Fear not, I will help you
Amidst life's ups and downs, tribulations, and trials, we often yearn for the carefree days of childhood when our parents lovingly cared for us and protected us.
In our tumultuous and uncertain world, God's fatherly promise resounds repeatedly in our ears. Like a nurturing parent soothing a weeping child, God comes to our side, holds our hand, and offers solace through His precious words: "For I, the Lord your God, hold your right hand, Saying to you, ‘Fear not, I will help you’" (Isaiah 41:13).
Even when it feels as if He is distant, let the reverberations of these words within our thoughts remind us that we are never alone or forgotten. God Himself declares, "I will never leave you nor forsake you." Therefore, let us proclaim with confidence, "The Lord is my helper; I will not fear. What can man do to me?" (Hebrews 13:5-6).
As we go through life's journey, let us hold onto God's promises with unwavering faith and trust. Let us remember that God is always with us, holding our hands, and guiding us through every step of the way.
