“For I, the LORD your God, hold your right hand; it is I who say to you, ‘Do not fear, I will help you'” (Isaiah 41:13)
Fear and isolation go together. It is amazing how fear abates in the presence of another.
When Kaleb was younger he hated the dark. He would go around turning on every light in the house whenever he was alone. But he wouldn’t do that when someone else was in the house with him.
Fear and isolation go together. Fear abates in the presence of another.
This is even more true when someone who is our protector is with us. No matter how dark the darkness is, when you are in the presence of someone who can protect you, fear runs.
No matter what you are going through, there is never a time when you are alone. God is Emmanuel – God with us. You are never alone. The LORD is your God. The LORD, who is the creator of the heavens and earth is your God!
Do not fear. Take courage. God is with you.
