Scripture for Today: 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.”
What a beautiful picture of love, care and protection for the most vulnerable; a little baby! Those strong hands cradle and soothe this little one to sleep and that peaceful smile is a trusting one. There are no disturbing thoughts of approaching waves suddenly coming up from behind to snatch him from those hands.
Today’s verse describe God’s hands as being more powerful than any others. Although God is spirit (John 4:24) the Bible is full of references to God’s eyes, arms or hands to help us understand Him. There can be no sudden sneaky move on the part of the enemy that can snatch us out of His hand. Those who belong to Him are held safe and secure in the same hands that formed the universe. His are the hands that stilled the waters and calmed the seas. Those hands heal with a touch. And His hands are scarred with the proof of His love.
There is nothing I can do that would cause Him to let me go. My faith in Him put me there. But it is His power that keeps me there. His are hands that I can trust and He will not let me go. My life and all of my tomorrows are in His hands, but more than that my eternity is in His hands! If life is suddenly cut short, those same hands will gently and lovingly bring me into His very presence. His hands are beautiful.
Lord, help me to be aware of Your loving hands today.
