... line upon line ... Isaiah 28:10
Isaiah 41:13 For I the LORD thy God will hold thy right hand, saying unto thee, Fear not; I will help thee. …
Is there a child of God that does not love this verse? Probably not. Yet, reading it once again this morning, it yielded a new blessing to me. Do we not often say that the LORD has to strengthen our weaknesses, our vulnerabilities, our frailties? Yes, we do, and it is a proper prayer to send Heavenward. But rereading this verse I notice that God will hold my RIGHT hand. The right hand is symbolic of strength and ability. Scripture speaks of the right Hand and right Arm of God: Thou hast a mighty arm: strong is thy hand, and high is thy right hand (Psalm 89:13).
It is in power and strength that God reaches down and intervenes in our lives, extending down that Mighty Right Arm that upholds us and strengthens us. Isaiah is teaching us that those aspects of our Christian life that we consider strengths, our right hand, whatever they be – Bible wisdom, prayer, faith, courage, boldness, peace, joy, humility, sensitivity, steadfastness – even these, OUR STRENGTHS are nothing without them being held by the Hand of our Father. The Scriptures teach us that Elijah was a man of prayer, a righteous man identified by effectual fervent prayer.
Yet, there was a day when Elijah ran into the wilderness and prayed that God might kill him. One of his defining Christian behaviours – prayer – needed to be held by the gentle Hand of His Father. Our simple lesson is this: there are days when we feel utterly helpless, ineffectual and weak. Our strengths in previous days – faith, prayer, charity and hope – abandon us and leave us feeling helpless in the grip of fear and frailty.
Yet, raise your right hand above your head, extend it toward the Throne of God above, and you will find that the Strong Right Arm of Jehovah God was already reaching down for you to hold on to. And might I add, He started to reach down to you before you realized you needed to reach up to Him! Just the act of reaching up and feeling for God’s Hand is what we call faith. Do not try to redefine it or make it more complex than it is.
