Always near

Do not yield to fear, for I am always near.
    Never turn your gaze from me, for I am your faithful God.
    I will infuse you with my strength
    and help you in every situation.
    I will hold you firmly with my victorious right hand.’

Isaiah 41:10 (The Passion Translation)

To me, these words from Isaiah are some of the most reassuring words in the bible.

So many people in our lives tell us they will always be there for us, but in reality when you’re most in need, the majority of them are sadly nowhere to be found. I think that’s probably why I find that promise in Isaiah so reassuring.

After all, when we’re at our lowest and in need of strength to carry on, we all want to have someone we can always rely on. Who better to reply on, and trust in every situation, than the One who has promised to always be near to us.
