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.

Acts 10:34, 35 Then Peter began to speak: “I now realize how true it is that God does not show favoritism but accepts from every nation the one who fears him and does what is right.”
Acts 5:38, 39 Therefore, in the present case I advise you: Leave these men alone! Let them go! For if their purpose or activity is of human origin, it will fail. But if it is from God, you will not be able to stop these men; you will only find yourselves fighting against God.”
