For I the LORD thy God will hold thy right hand, saying unto thee, Fear not; I will help thee.
Isaiah 41:13

There are times when it just feels like life can throw us some stuff to deal with. As soon as we think we have our footing, we trip over the next tribulation, situation, circumstance, attitude, doubt, whatever that next stumbling block is.

It is during these times we must be diligent to stay connected to God – our source of life. We must be purposely to take every thought captive and focus on thankfulness, gratitudes, and blessings.
Because whatever we focus on, either good or bad, will become the stronger force. That force becomes what drives us forward. So, if we are in a bad situation and we focus on the bad situation, while we are in the bad situation, the bad situation becomes all we can see.

But if we remember to focus on all of the blessings, deliverances, and on all things overcome – then that gratitude and that thankfulness will become stronger then the challenging thing we are dealing with at that moment. We are reminded that God is all powerful and that He is always with us.
We are reminded in Philippians 4:6-9 that in everything pray, earnestly and humbly, and with thanksgiving and in doing this we will receive the peace of God and He will keep our hearts and minds.

But we are also reminded to refocus our minds and think on what is pure, just, lovely, good, and honest. Also, We are to remember every situation that the hand of God has strengthen us in and walked with us through to deliverance. We are strengthened from faith to faith and remembering those times with thankfulness is part of the strengthening process.

Perhaps as we navigate through this life, filled with obstacles to trip over, we should take courage and seek, as Isaiah 41:13 says, for God to take us by the right-hand. The image of God holding my right hand, so that my strength comes from God above rather than the foundation beneath my feet, is powerful.

Imagine it. If there were a physical way to be suspended from above, by something not of this world, then the earth beneath could shake and tremble and mountains fall into the sea but we would not be moved. There may not be a physical way of achieving that kind of strength but there is a Spiritual one. God will never leave us hanging, He support’s us with His mighty hand.
That is what it feels like to have the peace of God that surpasses all understanding.

Whatever your struggle, whatever your circumstance, whatever is shaking your foundation – Pray, earnestly and humbly, giving thanks and glory to God. Praise Him in the struggle and Praise louder when your deliverance comes.

Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God. And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus. Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things. Those things, which ye have both learned, and received, and heard, and seen in me, do: and the God of peace shall be with you.
Philippians 4:6-9 – KJV

Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness. Behold, all they that were incensed against thee shall be ashamed and confounded: they shall be as nothing; and they that strive with thee shall perish. Thou shalt seek them, and shalt not find them, even them that contended with thee: they that war against thee shall be as nothing, and as a thing of nought. For I the Lord thy God will hold thy right hand, saying unto thee, Fear not; I will help thee.
Isaiah 41:10-13 KJV

For I the LORD thy God will hold thy right hand, saying unto thee, Fear not; I will help thee.
Isaiah 41:13
