Isaiah 41:13 (NLT) – For I hold you by your right hand—I, the Lord your God. And I say to you, ‘Don’t be afraid. I am here to help you.’
When you’re down and sad, you know that God will help you; it’s a promise that He will help us. Our families and friends may fail us, but God won’t. I discovered this verse when I was having a very tough time at one of my jobs (not at Westheights!). This verse was a reminder that I don’t have to worry about things because God will help me.
The same passage in THE MESSAGE Paraphrase: I, your God, have a firm grip on you and I’m not letting go. I’m telling you, ‘Don’t panic. I’m right here to help you.’
