I am the Lord your God, who holds your right hand, and I tell you, Don’t be afraid. I will help you.
Sometimes life crashes in and we wish we could be children again and have someone to take care of us and protect us.
Into our confused and chaotic world, God's promise comes to us once again. Like a loving parent with a frightened child, God reaches out and takes hold of our hand and comforts us with his precious words: “Don't be afraid. I'm here with you. I will help.”
Even when he seems distant, the echo of this thought can remind us that we are never alone or forgotten.
Heavenly Father, please help me have faith that you are there. In my moments of struggle and doubt, please make your presence known. In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen.
