I Am Really With You

Sometimes my feelings speak to me that God isn't with me. It isn't true. It may feel that way, but it isn't true.

Because my Father says so:

You are my servant,
I have chosen you,
and I have determined not to spurn you.
Do not fear,
for I am really with you.
Do not look this way and that,
for I am your God.
I will make you resolute:
more, I will help you;
more still, I will grip you with the right hand
of my righteousness.
For I, Yahweh, am your God,
keeping hold of your right hand;
the one who is saying to you:
Do not fear, 
I have determined to help you.
(Isaiah 41:9b-10; 13; translation by Alec Motyer)
