This Day in History: 0000-08-27

August 27 – Isaiah 41:13

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.”

Simple, straight forward, truth! The children of the Lord God Almighty are not alone in this dark, scary, traumatic world.

Friends, I don’t know what you face today. Perhaps you’re fighting for a marriage that seems all but lost. Maybe you’re crying out for a loved one who desperately needs God. Your heart might be so broken you can barely find the faith to keep praying. The mountain looming in front of you may seem so high, and so treacherous you’ve all but given up hope. I’m sorry. I understand, and I want you to know one simple truth that never ever changes. No matter how we feel:


Friends, the Lord God of Heaven’s Armies is holding us by our right hands. That’s right, the Commander of the armies of angels is fighting for you! He is. It might not feel like it, but It’s still true. I promise.

He’s calling to you, reminding you that you don’t have to be afraid. There’s simply nothing to fear. Nothing. Because the Sovereign Lord, the very One who holds all things together and sets up and tears down the kingdoms of the earth has made a promise to you. To YOU friend. Listen. Do you hear it? He’s saying,

“Don’t be afraid. I am here to help you.”
