HOLD ONTO HIS HAND THROUGHOUT LIFE

May 20, 2022

HOLD ONTO HIS HAND WHEN ALL IS GOING AS PLANNED
Sometimes when things are going smoothly, we can get lulled into the idea that we are managing on our own and we are on top of things. When everything in our lives is going as planned, we may feel that we do not need to hold onto His hand. I remember when I was a small child, I would walk along the edge of the ocean holding my mother's hand. Every now and again I would get bold and brave and think that I could take on the ocean, all by myself. I would let go of her hand and run into the waves. Inevitably I would discover that the ocean was more powerful than I and it would knock me over, I would look up and my mother would be there with her hand extended and I would instinctively grab hold of it and be pulled up. It is human nature to think that we can do it by ourselves when everything is going as planned. But it is also the nature of life to throw curved balls, and it is then that we need to know that we are holding onto His hand.

Psalm 73:23'Yet I am always with you; You hold me by my right hand.'

Even when you feel strong and things are going well, hold onto His hand - you never know the moment you will need it.

HOLD ONTO HIS HAND THROUGHOUT LIFE
Holding onto His hand should be our lifelong ambition. We should live a life of dependency on Him. Learning to be independent is part of the process of life, but learning to stay dependent on Him, is even more important. Someone once told me that when we are born, we are totally dependent. We are completely reliant on others to take care of us. As we get older, we become independent, and we can do things for ourselves and don't really need others. But when maturity comes, we realise that we need to become interdependent because, if the truth be told, we need each other. This applies to an even greater degree with the Lord. Don't get into a cycle of needing God and then doing it by yourself. Develop your dependence on Him and hold onto His hand in good times and in bad times.

Isaiah 46:4'I will be your God throughout your lifetime- until your hair is white with age. I made you, and I will care for you. I will carry you along and save you.'
