The Lord GOD is my help, therefore I am not disgraced; I have set my face like flint, knowing that I shall not be put to shame. He is near who upholds my right; if anyone wishes to oppose me, let us appear together. Who disputes my right? Let him confront me. See, the Lord GOD is my help; who will prove me wrong? (Isaiah 50:4-9)
Isaiah speaks with incredible confidence. It is enviable. He appears willing and able to take on all challengers. Where does this confidence come from? Simply put, he walks with God.
What does it mean to walk with God? Billy Graham, the famous evangelist that died in 2018, described walking with God in this way:
“How do we walk with Him every day? We do it the same way we strengthen our relationship with a friend, or with our spouse: we spend time with them—talking and listening to each other, sharing our concerns and joys, even helping and encouraging each other. In other words, we “walk” with them, enjoying their company and sharing our lives.
The same is true with God. Because He is with us, we can turn to Him in prayer at any moment, sharing our concerns and expressing our love for Him.”
That type of relationship gives rise to incredible confidence.
That same confidence is ours for the taking. Why walk alone?
