I’m reading through Isaiah and came across this Scripture verse that had given me much encouragement in the past—“Don’t be afraid, for I am with you. Don’t be discouraged, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you. I will hold you up with my victorious right hand” (Isaiah 41:10).

Many years ago I was in a situation where I felt much hostility from people who were my superiors. I was being falsely accused and pressured into recanting something that I had said.

Although my husband was very supportive, it still seemed like a very lonely and depressing time for me. God’s Word was a comfort. Sometimes we need to be reminded that we are not alone; and even though we feel scared, we need to know that we have nothing to fear.  


God gives “strength to the powerless” and “power to the weak” (Isa 40:29).

What kind of opposition are you going through? Think about Isaiah 41:10 and give it to God!
