He Is Our God Who Will Help Us

If God can create a small creature to thrive in the deepest ocean, if He can separate the light from the darkness so that we can see, and if He can say to the wind, “No further will you go,” then why should we fear? Fear not, for there is nothing God cannot do.

You shall seek those who contend with you,
but you shall not find them;
those who war against you
shall be as nothing at all.
For I, the LORD your God,
hold your right hand;
it is I who say to you, “Fear not,
I am the one who helps you.”

(Isaiah 41:12-13)

In all that God has promised us, He will not allow us to suffer more than we can bear. His hand will guide us to safety. Whatever manner of trial comes upon us, God, and no one else, will provide our way of escape.

God gave His Son Jesus for the forgiveness of our sins. We do not have to bear the penalty ourselves. He did that for us. No other event in history is more important, more meaningful and more loving than for Jesus to have given Himself for us. We live because He died for us.

Should we fear those who might harm us? Should we feel weak when those who are strong threaten us? Should we lose faith if the earth were to collapse before us? Fear not! There is no one like Him. He is our God who will help us.

  1. I am with you one this one, all the way. Jesus needs to be the forefront of all our thoughts. We need to shift all through the Word of God in order to remain content with what God brings our way. Good post Jack.

  2. So good! We need to remind ourselves daily that if we just keep our eyes on Jesus and get them off the world We will see lur salvation continually even in the midst of the world’s greatest difficulties.
