Hold On!

God’s Word: Psalms 135

God’s Attribute: God holds the hands of his people

God’s Message to me:

My hand guides the baby from the womb and I place their care into your keeping.  Even then, my hand does not leave you, for I have placed within you a strong love to care for and protect that baby.  You also see this same protective care in the animal kingdom.  That is me, holding your hand.

When life’s cares cause you to flounder and faint, that is when you have let go of my hand.  I would never choose to let go—but you do.  You let go and then fail, and then blame me for your failure.

I gave my Word to guide and protect your life. As you read that Word and seek my guidance I am right there, holding your hand, and encouraging you on.  Don’t let go!  I know you are still holding on when I hear words of praise from your lips.  When I hear you acknowledging me as provider and guider—I hold even tighter to your hand.  How you bless me when you show me you need me by devoting time to reading my Word, talking with me and allowing me to interact with your spirit—by holding your hand.

God’s Question for me:

Will you keep hold of my hand?

God’s Promise to me:

God stands up for His people, God holds the hands of His people.

My Song to God:

Precious Lord, take my hand, lead me on, help me stand.

I am tired, I am weak, I am worn;

Thru the storm, thru the night, lead me on to the light

Take my hand, Precious Lord, lead me home.

 

When my way grows drear, Precious Lord, linger near,

When my life is almost gone;

Hear my cry, hear my call, hold my hand lest I fall

Take my hand, Precious Lord, lead me home.

    Too bad that so many do not include God in the equation.
    I can’t understand why those who have babies don’t love them as you and I do. I can’t understand why they don’t see that, as a miracle and that God is the designer of miracles. I loved your thoughts regarding this passage…….
