Taking God’s Hand


How we use our hands communicates a lot about us. Do you approach life with a clenched fist or with a soft touch? Take some time to notice what people do with their hands.

I saw great contrast in the way people used their hands on a recent overseas trip. Once, while walking alongside a busy street, I saw a car brush against a man. The man raised his hand in anger and struck the side of the car. Then, down an alleyway, a young mother held her small infant close to her chest, stroking his soft cheek.

What do the hands of God communicate to us? Isaiah 41:13 shows us God’s compassionate approach to those He loves:

“For I am the LORD, your God, who takes hold of your right hand and says to you, ‘Do not fear; I will help you.’”

What in your life today makes you need the compassionate touch of your heavenly Father? Have you reached out your hand today to take hold of His to experience His help?
