Hope and comfort

Was just reading in Isaiah tonight and came across this passage:

“But you, O Israel, my servant,
Jacob, whom I have chosen,
You descendants of Abraham my friend …

I took you from the ends of the earth,
From its farthest corners I called you.
I said, “You are my servant,”
I have chosen you and have not rejected you.

So do not fear, I am with you.
Do not be dismayed, for I am your God.
I will strengthen you and help you,
I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.”

That’s great news for Christians. God will strengthen us and help us. He’ll uphold us with his righteous hand … which is especially good news for me, being full of unrighteousness!
