FEAR NOT! BE NOT DISMAYED!
What a wonderful word of assurance from God to His people!!! They were not perfect by any measure of assessment – their failures were abundant! And they had faced His discipline.
BUT… God’s love, grace and faithfulness were dependable! … “You are my servant! I have chosen you and not cast you off! Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God! I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand!” (From Isaiah 41:8–10)
We, His people, like Israel, need to hear Him say this to us!!!
