Hello everyone…and a very happy and blessed Monday to you all! Well…here we go again…another new day and another new week! As we begin our time together today, I pray that we will discover God in a very real way…one that will cause us to hold tightly to His hand and never let go…Amen!!
Have you ever stopped to think on what life would be like, if we were to let go of the hand of God completely? Some of us may have already experienced moments such as these; but what I have truly come to see through my own life experiences; is that when we let go of the hand of God…we do come to see that the strength we once had is no longer there and we also find that we tend to feel alone and abandoned, during these hard and difficult times of life; but even more…these weakened souls of ours, have now become prey before the enemy, which is Satan.
I don’t know about you; but I have come to see over time that I can’t even walk through this life, without holding tightly to the hand of God…and how do we do that…when we turn to Him for help; that we may remain lifted up on high with Him, rather than turning to a problem that will only bring about a fall.
This morning, as I was listening to some music…I was also looking through God’s word…and as I began to search for something that would encourage us all; God began to lead me to a Bible verse in Psalm 145:14, which reads… “The LORD helps the fallen and lifts those bent beneath their loads.” Now tell me…how is the Lord going to be able to lift us back to our feet, if He is nowhere to be found? In other words…if we choose to let go of His hand and wing it on our own; then how are we going to remain standing, when we feel that the weight of a circumstance is taking us down?
You know…I don’t think we always realize, as to how much we truly need God in our lives. In fact…there are times, when I feel as if we tend to take Him for granted. I guess we just expect Him to always be there…and yes, He can do that; but what is He going to do, if we choose to let go of His hand and go our own? We might as well realize that we can’t make life work on our own and expect Him to be there for us at the same time…that just can’t be. Either we are going to take a tight grip on God’s hand or we are going to do it our own way…the choice is up to us.
There was a time in my life, when I would call out to God for help…and even beg Him to help me through a situation; but then, I would either go back to the wallowing hole of despair…or I would grow impatient and try to figure it out on my own. The only bad thing about that; was that life seemed to worsen with time and I seemed to be drained from the strength I once had. In fact…I eventually came to see that I had walked myself into unknown territory…and alone, which only made my life even more vulnerable to the ways of Satan…and why…because I had let go of the hand of God…to wing it on my own, which became a big mistake.
You know…we all have times, when we either unknowingly let go of God’s hand…or we purposely let go of His hand. Even though we find ourselves in these predicaments; that doesn’t mean that all hope is gone. In fact…all we have to do is cry out to God…and one thing I know…He will come running, to take hold of our hand once more.
Maybe today, you have come to see that you have let go of the hand of God. Maybe you’re feeling weak in spirit and alone in life. Maybe you feel as if you have taken the wrong road…and are now experiencing even more blows from the enemy. Like I said…all hope isn’t gone…for God is only a prayer away. Just turn to Him and tell Him all about it…and like I said…He will take hold of your hand and walk you out of these uncertain times…and He will never let go.
As we close this time together, I pray that we will truly come to grips with the thought; that we can’t even walk one step through this life, without holding the hand of God…Amen!!
Have a very blessed day…and I will see you soon…with more words of encouragement… from God’s heart to yours!
It’s Always & Only Because of Him…
