God’s Hand, 4
“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 (NKJV)
Dismayed—downcast, demoralized, discouraged, distressed, distraught. Do you feel those emotions? God says, “Don’t,” because He is our God and extends His hand to help us, hold us up, and strengthen us.
God’s hand is the solution to our worry, weakness, and wondering. He helps us by supplying our need. He holds us, keeping us safe. He strengthens our fragile, vulnerable hearts. Because His hand is righteous, it only provides His children with what is good. God’s nature makes it impossible for Him to do otherwise.
God’s hand is one of provision, safe-keeping, and strength. He extends it to us. We need only to reach out and take hold.
For he is our God, and we are the people of his pasture,
and the sheep of his hand. Psalm 95:7 (ESV)
