Daily D – Isaiah 41:10, 13; 43:1
Isaiah 41:10 “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.” (NIV)
41:13 “For I am the Lord your God who takes hold of your right hand and says to you, Do not fear; I will help you.” (NIV)
43:1 “But now, this is what the Lord says— he who created you, Jacob, he who formed you, Israel: “Do not fear, for I have redeemed you; I have summoned you by name; you are mine.” (NIV)
One of the simplest prayers is among the most meaningful. It is a joyful affirmation. We say in response to what God says to us, “I belong to you.”
“Help me,” is a prayer our Father in heaven is more eager to answer than we are to pray.
First, he gives us presence. We have never been anywhere he is not. We have never strayed beyond what he can redeem. There is nothing, nothing, nothing more powerful than our God. Acknowledge his presence.
Second, he gives us strength. Where he guides, he provides. What he asks, he empowers. Depend on his strength.
Third, we can live confidently, fearlessly, because we live in the grip of his grace. Live fearlessly.
Here are good verses to commit to memory.
Here are foundational truths to build your life upon.
Here is strength for today and bright hope for tomorrow.
I will acknowledge God’s presence, depend on his strength, and live confidently because I belong to him.
Our Father, your presence surrounds me. Your strength empowers me. Your hand holds me securely. I belong to you. Amen.

Psalm 139:17, 18 How precious are your thoughts about me, O God. They cannot be numbered! I can’t even count them; they outnumber the grains of sand! And when I wake up, you are still with me!
2 Corinthians 5:1-5 For we know that when this earthly tent we live in is taken down (that is, when we die and leave this earthly body), we will have a house in heaven, an eternal body made for us by God himself and not by human hands. We grow weary in our present bodies, and we long to put on our heavenly bodies like new clothing. For we will put on heavenly bodies; we will not be spirits without bodies. While we live in these earthly bodies, we groan and sigh, but it’s not that we want to die and get rid of these bodies that clothe us. Rather, we want to put on our new bodies so that these dying bodies will be swallowed up by life. God himself has prepared us for this, and as a guarantee he has given us his Holy Spirit.
1 Corinthians 10:13 The temptations in your life are no different from what others experience. And God is faithful. He will not allow the temptation to be more than you can stand. When you are tempted, he will show you a way out so that you can endure.
