There is a familiar insurance company whose motto says "You're in Good Hands". For a believer in Jesus Christ you REALLY are in good hands. There may be storms in your life where at times you wonder where God is and why are you going through things. Believe it or not God has not abandoned you and loves you.
When you are raising children and it is time to discipline them with spanking, for instance, you may say "this is hurting me more than it is hurting you" and for a parent it is not fun to spank or give a swat on the fanny, but when a child is disobedient and you are trying to train them to be a good citizen as well as a follower of Jesus, discipline is necessary. In the military, recruits are trained to follow orders and obey commands. They endure strict training procedures to get them ready ultimately for combat. You have to be able to endure certain things and follow orders or you will be a weak link in the chain.
A favorite childhood song of mine is "He's Got The Whole World in His Hands" and truly He indeed does. Once you have asked Jesus to be your Lord and savior you are in his hands. John 10:28(NIV) says 'I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish, and no one will snatch them out of my hand.' Why not trust Him today?
PRAYER: Thanks that you have me and will not let me go. Even when storms are raging around me I can rest knowing you have me safe and secure. I will trust in you Lord. In Jesus' name. Amen.
