Holding Hands

Mar 24, 2022 | Little Gem

I originally wrote this devotional for Good News Daily in 2021. 

Sunday September 5
Psalm 63  I cling to you; your strong right hand holds me securely.  V. 8 NLT

When I was a little girl, I often wanted to walk by myself swinging my arms.  I think like most kids I didn’t always want to be held in my parents’ grasp unable to roam to my heart’s content  Yet, when my parents thought that we were entering a dangerous situation they insisted that I hold onto their hand.  No arguments.

I learned quickly that sometimes it was a good thing to be clinging to my parents’ hands.  I was safe as long as my hand was held securely in theirs.  They kept me from being hit by vehicles.  They pulled me out of the reach of overenthusiastic animals who thought I was a toy.  And they guided me through the maze of people on sidewalks.

God wants to do the same thing for us.  He wants to keep His children safe – our hands clinging to His.  When we are holding on to His hand, we are held securely.  He will never let go of us.

1 Kings 12:12-33; Psalm 98; Acts 4:18-31; John 10:31-42
