“So do not fear, for 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.” – Isaiah 41:10 (NIV)

As the school bell rings and a new chapter unfolds, it’s natural to feel a mix of excitement and nervousness. The halls are bustling with new faces and possibilities, and it’s easy to wonder how you’ll navigate it all. In times of uncertainty, remember the reassuring words of Isaiah 41:10: “Do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God.”

God’s presence in your life isn’t limited to certain moments or places. He is with you in the classroom, the cafeteria, and every step you take. His promise to strengthen, help, and uphold you is a source of comfort and courage. While challenges may arise, you can find strength in the knowledge that you’re not facing them alone.

Prayer: Dear Lord, As a new school year begins, I find comfort in Your promise from Isaiah 41:10. In moments of uncertainty, I trust that You are with me, providing strength and guidance. When anxiety creeps in, remind me of Your presence and love. Help me approach each day with confidence, knowing that You are upholding me with Your righteous right hand. Grant me wisdom, courage, and the ability to embrace the opportunities this year holds. In Jesus’ name, I pray. Amen.
