Psalm 144:7 Reach down Your hand from on high; deliver me and rescue me from the mighty waters!
Mighty Waters represents a deep place of challenge and difficulty. I am not sure what Mighty Waters you are facing today, but I know one thing for sure, that place is NOT beyond the reach of His mighty hand.
Exodus 13:14 With the power of His mighty hand, the LORD brought us out of Egypt, the place of our slavery.
The Lord did not expect the people of Israel to rescue themselves. In fact, they were so broken and devastated, after years of struggle and abuse, that they could not help themselves. Then, God in His mercy, reached down, with His mighty hand, and He lifted them up from the lowest and the most desperate place. He will do the same for you.
Psalm 40:2 He lifted me out of the slimy pit, out of the mud and mire; He set my feet on a rock and gave me a firm place to stand.
Romans 5:6 When we were utterly helpless (powerless), Christ came at just the right time and died for us sinners.
When we reach that place where our strength is utterly exhausted, our hope is totally dashed, and all our efforts have left us exhausted and drained, then the Lord, and His mighty hand comes, to that very place in which we find ourselves, and He becomes the strength that we need. His hand reaches down to us and lifts us up, rescues and delivers us, and restores a spark of hope deep within our hearts.
THERE IS NOTHING MORE POWERFUL THAN THE MIGHTY HAND OF GOD.
Exodus 13:3 Then Moses said to the people, Commemorate this day, the day you came out of Egypt, out of the land of slavery, because the LORD brought you out of it with a mighty hand.
Egypt was the world's power of its day. It was the most powerful force on earth at that time. It held sway over the affairs of humanity, and the people of Israel were held within its, seemingly, all-powerful grip. The Pharaoh ruled with a rod of iron and whatever he said was law and truth. It was truly an impossible situation, BUT for the mighty hand of the Living God. There are many things that have the potential to hold us in bondage and to hold us ransom, but there is One Who is greater and more powerful than anything else. His hand can break the hold of anything that is trying to hold you hostage or even trying to throttle the life out of you. Look away from the things that seek to destroy, look to Him and His mighty hand. There is nothing too difficult for the Lord and nothing that His mighty hand cannot do or accomplish on our behalf. As you look at what you are facing, always look at it from the perspective of His mighty hand, and rest in His ability and plan.
