“Don’t worry, because I am with you. Don’t be afraid, because I am your God. I will make you strong and will help you.” Isaiah 41:10 (NCV)
Ever been for a session at the gym, done a really tough PE class or some kind of training and afterwards you’ve felt shattered? A time when you’ve felt so physically weak, you have no energy at all?
Well, it can be like this in our walk with God too. We can feel so spiritually weak at times. We can be facing all kind of pressures, things trying to get us to doubt God, to question our faith, to be tempted by the world. So many things can come against us, and very often, loads of things happen all at once.
But we can be filled with an amazing hope when we read this verse today. It tells us not to worry, not to be afraid, because God is with us. We need to remember who our God is. He’s the great I AM, His power and strength is endless, He made the entire Universe, absolutely nothing is impossible for Him. When you put your faith in Him, this verse says, I will make you strong and will help you. So if you’re feeling spiritually ‘weak’ today, put your faith in God. He will lift you up, you don’t need to worry or be afraid, He will make you strong.
