Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, yes, I will help you, I will uphold you with My righteous right hand.’ (Isaiah 41:10) He is with us when we face all who oppose us in this world. I’m grateful that my wife and family are with me through difficulties. I’m thankful for the church I serve. They are with me. How much more grateful I am that God is with me! “God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble” (Ps 46.1). God is not against me but with me. He is not aloof and indifferent but intimately aware. God is with me.
