Isaiah 41:10 (NKJV)
10 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.

The verse above is one of encouragement and hope for the Israelites. For God tells them not to fear or be dismayed for He is with them, will strengthen them, help them and support them with His own hand.

There are people who seem to running on empty in their lives. They are overwhelmed by everyday life and just don�t quite seem to have the strength to carry on. God reminds us and gives us hope in His Word that He will strengthen and help us in our times of need. David wrote in Psalm 118:14, �The Lord is my strength and song, And He has become my salvation.� Isaiah 40:31 says, �But those who wait on the Lord Shall renew their strength; They shall mount up with wings like eagles, They shall run and not be weary, They shall walk and not faint.�

We also need to remember that while God strengthens us - Satan tries to weaken us. The Apostle Peter wrote saying, �Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour.� The prophet Amos wrote: Therefore thus says the Lord God: �An adversary shall be all around the land; He shall sap your strength from you, And your palaces shall be plundered.�

God keeps His promises and will provide us strength as we stay close to God. God�s word tells us that if we draw near to Him, He will draw near to us. So remember to stay close to God so you can draw strength from God when you are weak. For in turning our weakness over to God we are made strong.
