Isaiah 41:12-13 NIV 2011
Though you search for your enemies, you will not find them. Those who wage war against you will be as nothing at all.
For I am the Lord your God who takes hold of your right hand and says to you, Do not fear; I will help you.
Isaiah continued The Book of Comfort, Isaiah 40:1, “Comfort, comfort for my people, says your God.” God chose to encourage His sinful people. This left them powerless against His judgment. They would be conquered. God would never leave them but remain close at all times. Psalm 73:22, “Yet I am always with you; you hold me by my right hand.” Isaiah 41:10, “So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.” God’s powerful hand of salvation is available to all.
Having anchored my life in Christ long ago, reflecting His Light daily’s easy. A dear friend of mine went to church but lacked a personal relationship with Jesus. Throughout a very stressful walk during my life, she saw the rock solid foundation I had and wanted to know all about how Jesus changed my life. I began at the beginning by filling in some of the times He’d faithfully been there for me. She accepted God’s power and salvation was available to her.
Who needs to know God’s salvation is available?
