Fear Not, I Am With Thee
Isaiah 40-49 | September 19-25
In these chapters, Isaiah teaches us about the power, majesty, and love of God. He shares words of comfort, reminding Israel that God is the Creator of everything and that He has all power. Because He loves us, God will help those who will follow Him, just as a shepherd cares for his lambs.
Isaiah also warns against worshipping idols, saying that idols have no power and they are not worth anything. Only the Lord can help us and redeem us. Isaiah prophesies of the coming of the Lord and praises Him, saying, “Sing unto the Lord a new song, and his praise from the end of the earth.” (Isaiah 42:10) Isaiah also prophesies again of the gathering if Israel in the last days and that the Messiah will also be a light unto the Gentiles.
Many times in these chapters the Lord says, “Fear not”. He is with us, He has redeemed us, He has called us, and He will help us. We can trust in Him.
