Nevertheless I am continually with you; You hold me by my right hand. – Psalm 73:23 NKJV
There is something very sweet and innocent about holding the hand of a child. Holding hands is for protection and guidance of the child, but it is about comfort as well.
We need God’s love, comfort, and protection. In many ways, if we could just trust Jesus the way our children trust us, we would save ourselves a lot of worry.
God is there for us. He is with us continually, day and night, even when we are asleep. He cares for us.
He keeps us from falling. He guides us away from danger.
When we try to rely on our own strength, we realize very quickly that listening to God is much better than self reliance because God is infinitely better at helping us and guiding us than we are. Amen.
