Isaiah 41:10 is a favorite children’s bible memory verse, but how many know the story behind this verse?
“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.”
The prophet’s name “Isaiah” means “Yahweh (God) Saves”. Isaiah was an Old Testament prophet and he warned the Kings of the southern nation of Judah (God’s People) that they needed to turn the nation back to God. They needed to stop making deals with foreign nations to protect them and to turn instead to God who would ultimately protect and strengthen them.
In Isaiah 41, the prophet reminds the people that in every generation, past, present and future, God has always been and will be with His people and taking care of them.
In Isaiah 41:10, Isaiah again tells the people that God will always be with them, therefore they should have ‘no fear’. God will strengthen them, God will help them and they can count on this because God has committed His strength to doing this.
What a wonderful comfort to a people who had enemies all around.
God is no different today, we need not fear because God is always with us and working on our behalf.
