Fear not for I am thy God
Isaiah 41:10 - Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness.
Righteousness means to be in the right. Like truth is connected only to the Word of God similarly righteousness is also connected only to the ways of the Lord. Man's righteousness can be called as being good but they still can not be truly called righteousness. Our world and sight is too small to know the right path.
The righteousness of God can be either good or bad for man. If we are on the right side or on the right hand of God's righteousness it will prosper us and build us. But if we are on the wrong side or the left hand, it will destroy us and still make us an example. Examples for both would be Moses and Pharaoh in Exodus; both were used as instruments to glorify God.
The Lord is telling us today 'fear not' which means believe in the truth, which is in the Lord and his Word and He will lift us up with his right hand. This means we will receive all the goodness of the Lord. So, just believe in your hearts and open your hands wild to receive.
[ Prayer Starter ]
Lord, your Word can move mountains, both physically and in spirit (our problems). Lord help me close my physical senses to the bad news, especially my eyes that read all the depressing news on newspapers and my ears that hears all the disasters on radio, television and from people. Open my spiritual eyes Lord, that I may see all the great things that You have set before me to receive. I ask this in Jesus' Name, Amen.
