Isaiah 41:13 For I the LORD thy God will hold thy right hand, saying unto thee, FEAR NOT, I will help thee. (KJV)
As I have journeyed through this study of fear nots, I continue to be amazed at how the Lord graciously repeats over and over for us that we do not have to be afraid. What is astounding is how much is in each little verse even when it repeats another verse. Such a patient Father!
This verse is the picture of a Father holding the right hand of his child as they journey through life. My daddy died when I was just eighteen years old and this little girl will tell you she misses holding his hand and having his guidance every single day. My daddy loved boxing. Every Friday night you would find him in front of the black and white television watching the Friday night fights. Now I think I know why.
This verse alone is beautiful but don’t miss verses 11 & 12!
11 “Behold, all those who were incensed against you
Shall be ashamed and disgraced;
They shall be as nothing,
And those who strive with you shall perish.
12 You shall seek them and not find them—
Those who contended with you.
Those who war against you
Shall be as nothing,
As a nonexistent thing.
It reminds this daughter that Daddy (Abba Father) will deal with those who threaten his child! Our Heavenly Father will handle the “bullies” of this world by holding my right hand with his left hand (His Right hand is free! Remember Isaiah 41:10? God is Right Handed 02/01/2016).
Be careful who you pick on–this girl has a Big God and HE has her problem in HIS RIGHT HAND! He is no Southpaw fighter and His right hand delivers the knock-out punch! He is the undisputed Champion of the universe and I belong to Him. I hope you do too! He loves adoption and you can join our family. (January 25, 2016 Fear Not # 37 Fear Not the Conspiracy)
