“Fear Not, For I Am With You” (Isaiah 41:1-20)

In chapter 40, Isaiah established the fundamental principles about God to assure Israel of God’s power and eagerness to save them. Now in chapter 41, Isaiah brings these principles into clearer focus. This section begins and ends with God addressing the nations, but in between is a lengthy section of comfort and reassurance given to God’s weak and weary people, a word we need to hear today. In this sermon, pastor Mitch reminds us that Christians have no need to fear because the sovereign God who rules the nations is the One who helps us.
