Sunday Scripture: Don't Panic




But you, Israel, are my servant.
    You’re Jacob, my first choice,
    descendants of my good friend Abraham.


I pulled you in from all over the world,
    called you in from every dark corner of the earth,
Telling you, ‘You’re my servant, serving on my side.
    I’ve picked you. I haven’t dropped you.’


Don’t panic. I’m with you.
    There’s no need to fear for I’m your God.
I’ll give you strength. I’ll help you.
    I’ll hold you steady, keep a firm grip on you.

~Isaiah 41:8-10
