YOU ARE IN GOD’S HANDS
During good times and bad times it is always wise to remember that we are in God’s Hands. This means we are under His protection and care. He knows the number of hairs upon our head and cares for us in a way we can’t even comprehend. He wants an intimate relationship with us. He desires fellowship with His adopted children and He cares for us so deeply! His care is so great that the Word tells us He has engraved us on the palms of His hands. We are never out of His sight, memory, or thought.
Therefore, we would do well to let God choose for us. This means to ask God about His plan and purpose for you. Are you to marry or remain single? Ask Him what profession you are best suited for and where He wants you to live. You must be in a prayer conversation with God in order to hear His answers, His choices.
Let God guide you on your life journey. He is the Good Shepherd after all. He is more than qualified to lead and direct your path. Man will often try to plan his course in life but God will ultimately direct his steps…. Even if we are kicking and screaming.
Allow God to help you. He knows just what you need in every circumstance. He will instruct, teach, and train you for every task He requires from you. He will prepare you for any spiritual battle you face. He wants to work with you when sharing the good news.
Our God is a wonderful Counselor. This means you can ask for wisdom and it will be given to you, so long as you don’t doubt that He will share it.
Finally, If you find yourself in a fight, let God fight for you. This means in real life and in the spiritual realm. He is the judge and will bring all of our abusers to justice. He knows best how to discipline them so we would do well to lay aside our personal plans for revenge. God not only fights for us, but He will avenge us.
JAMES 1:5 (NIV) If any of you lacks wisdom, you should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to you.LUKE 12:7 Indeed, the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Don’t be afraid; you are worth more than many sparrows.
ISAIAH 9:6 (b) And He will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.
ISAIAH 49:16 See, I have engraved you on the palms of my hands; your walls are ever before me.
