DO NOT FEAR, FOR I—YOUR GOD—AM WITH YOU.
I will uphold you with My righteous right hand.
Let these words enfold you like a warm blanket, sheltering you from the coldness of fear and dismay.
When trouble seems to be stalking you, grip My hand tightly and stay in communication with Me.
You can trust and not be afraid, for I am your Strength and Song.
My powerful Presence is with you at all times; you face nothing alone.
Moreover, I have promised to strengthen you and help you.
Awareness of these truths can fill you with Joy and Peace.
My righteous right hand holds you up in both good times and bad.
When things are flowing smoothly in your life, you may be unaware of My sustaining Presence.
Should I cease to support you, though, you would quickly fall.
When you are walking through the valley of the shadow of death— keenly aware of your neediness—you gratefully cling to My strong hand.
My right hand sustains you during these times of affliction, enabling you to keep putting one foot in front of the other.
As you endure your trials in trusting dependence on Me, I bless you in the midst of hardship.
I even stoop down to make you great: I reach down—into the valley of affliction—and lift you up into sacred pleasures shared with Me.
So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God.
"From " Jesus Lives " by Sarah Young
"I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand."
"Behold, God is my salvation, I will trust and not be afraid; for the Lord God is my strength and song, and He has become my salvation."

"Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil; for You are with me; Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me."
PSALM 23:4 NKJV
"You give me your shield of victory, and your right hand sustains me; you stoop down to make me great."
