Visual images can illuminate concepts. Nowhere is that more true than in this passage. Isaiah paints two pictures of fear and how God responds to each.

When afraid, we all lean on someone or something to get us through. The question is, how reliable is that source of comfort and strength?

Discover the way Isaiah uses the image of a hand to describe God’s deep care for us.

The season of Lent begins on Ash Wednesday, and is joyfully concluded on Easter Sunday. With six weeks of Lenten devotions, Sally Ivaska encourages us to use this time to draw close to God through Bible reading, meditation, and prayer.
