Scripture for Today: John 10:28-29 “I give them eternal life, and they will never perish; no one will snatch them from My hand. My Father, who has given them to Me, is greater than all, and no one can snatch them from My Father’s hand.”
Young hands are beautiful hands. As we get older, spots and raised veins appear. Arthritis can swell the knuckles and hands do not look as beautiful as they once did. Hands have a way of giving away our age. Too bad gloves are not in style!
The Scriptures tell us that God is Spirit (John 4:24). Even so, the Bible is full of references to God’s eyes or arms or hands to help us understand Him. And I love to think of His hands and the fact that as His child, I am held there, safe and secure.
Our verses for today describe His hands as being more powerful than any others. There can be no sudden sneaky move on the part of the enemy that can snatch me out of His hand. I, myself, can not cause Him to let go. My faith in Him put me there. His power and love keep me there.
His are the hands that formed the universe. The hand that holds me is the same hand that stilled the waters and calmed the seas. Those hands touch and heal. And His hands are scarred with the proof of His love. They are hands that I can trust. He will not let me go.
My life is in His hands, but more than that my eternity is in His hands! If life is suddenly cut short, that does not change the pressure of His hand as He walks me into His very presence. His hands are beautiful.
