“For I am the Lord, your God, who takes hold of your right
hand and says to you, “Do not fear; for I will help you.”
Isaiah 41:13

As human beings, we know what it is to be afraid. Because of that, the image here in Isaiah 41 is especially powerful. God himself takes hold of our hand and speaks to us words of comfort and assurance. He says, “Do not fear; for I will help you.” The certainty of His help makes fear unnecessary.
