Isaiah 41:10 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.’ This means we should be encouraged even when we do not see God in our daily environment. God is there, He will strengthen and hold us up.
We sometimes rely upon our feelings to indicate God’s presence, but our feeling are many times not accurate. The one sure way is to trust by faith in what God says in His Word. All that counts is what God says, not what our feeling feel. We may feel up or feel down, but regardless God is there and we know by faith that He answers prayer.
