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.
He tends His flock like a shepherd: He gathers the lambs in His arms and carries them close to His heart; He gently leads those that have young. – Isaiah 40:11 NIV
The Lord is gentle with us, as a shepherd cares for his sheep. He comforts us when we are feeling down. He restores us when we are tired. He especially helps us when we have children to tend to who need constant supervision and love.
We can easily get ourselves into trouble, but He is there to catch us when we fall. The path of righteousness sometimes seems hard, but in the end it will all be worth it.
He created us, and He saved us. We can trust that wherever He leads us, it is safe to follow. He will not lead us astray. He will not forget that we need directions and a map. He can guide us to the way everlasting. Amen.
Give thanks to the Lord, for He is good; His love endures forever. – 1 Chronicles 16:34
God loves us, and that never changes. Like a good father, He corrects us when we are wrong. He can help change our thoughts so we can follow Him better. We sometimes make mistakes. We get frustrated and angry, but God’s love endures forever. We can be thankful for that.
It’s difficult for a parent when a child doesn’t do what is right. It is our responsibility to teach them the way that they should go, but we can’t require them to listen.
I’m sure that it frustrates God when we rebel and don’t listen. But He doesn’t give up on us. He loves us no matter what, and so must we. He is the best Father we could have to teach us.
