In The Hollow of His Hand
Therefore do not worry about tomorrow: This world seems like it is spinning out of control to the most people. As Christians we know and put our faith in that fact that our God has got the whole world in His hands. Remember that song? He's got you and me brother in His hands, He's got you and me sister in His hands. From the smallest sparrow to the largest problem in this world our Lord is in control. We as His followers must put our trust in that fact. I know if His eye is on the sparrow then I know He watches over me. He's got the whole world in his hands. For He is the Creator of this world and everything that is in it. As this world, spins, rock and rolls, and goes in its evil ways we are to take no thought for we know who holds tomorrow. If we are Christians we can see how things are lining up. We can see the ever increasing evil in this world. We can see more and more prophecies being full filled and we know that the end of time is near. Even so come Lord Jesus!
As I read the Word of God I see through out His word where He supplied the needs of His people. In the New Testament He miraculously fed the multitude twice with a lot being left over. The people's needs were abundantly met. His word tells us that He will never leave us or forsake us. He is a friend that sticks closer than a brother. What comforting words to think about in this day that we are living in. If we live for Jesus, seeking to do His will, we have the guarantee of God's Holy Word that He will provide for us, all of our needs according to His riches in glory, by Christ Jesus. I can say this that through out my life God has always honored His Word in my life. Through many dangers toils and snares I have already come and my Lord has always kept me safe until the storm passes over. He will do the same for you, just trust and obey, for there is really no other way.
I'm reminded of the Hebrews as they left Egypt. His presence was with them by day in a cloud and of a night by a pillar of fire. They were fed, had water to drink, and their clothes never wore out. Do you remember the three Hebrew children that were put into the fiery furnace? The ones who put them in the furnace was consumed, but the three Hebrews clothes did not even smell like fire. Why? Because there was someone in that furnace with them! Daniel was put in the lion's den because of his faith. What happened? He walked out without a scratch on him. Elisha was fed by ravens, got water from a brook and was his for safety by our Lord. The twelve disciples were in danger of sinking in the mist of the storm, but Jesus came to them. What did all these people have in common? They were all in the hollow of His hand! Are you in the hollow of His hand?
What does it mean to be in the hollow of His hand? It means to be in a place protected until the storm passes over, Where there will be no evil to come upon us. It means a place where you can feel His grace and His presence. It is a place where we can feel safe and secure. It is a place of divine protection. It is our hiding place. It is a place where we know we will never be snatched away. It is a place that no matter what happen in or to this country we will be safe. Safe because we will be in the hollow of His hand.
If we are followers of Christ, truly born again saved people then we know this, that no matter what the future holds we will be safe and secure: "WE ARE HELD IN THE HOLLOW OF HIS HAND!" What comfort! What Joy!
