Daily Devotional – 11/8/16 “You’re in good hands with … God!”

I’ve started this blog over two times, unsure of what God will have me to share with you. I mean, how many more times can I tell you to stand in the midst of what you’re going through when I don’t even know what that is. How can I constantly remind you to keep the faith when I don’t even know if you had faith to begin with? How can I tell you, every day, to fight when I don’t know the enemies you’re facing? How much more can I share with you that you haven’t heard before? Because, if we can be honest with each other, there are some times when you don’t want to be all holy and Christian like. There’s some times when the enemy is whooping your butt and you don’t want to hear, just hold on. There’s some days you don’t feel like drying your tears. Some nights you don’t have any more strength to pray. Some midnights you don’t even have the energy to wrestle any longer. I get it because I’ve been there. Where’s there? To a point of being frustrated and still failing. Fighting and still losing. Praying and still being persecuted. Faithful and still feeling forsaken. Anointed and filled with anger. Prophetic and still playing. Worshipping and still wandering. A watchmen who’s still weak. What do you do and what do you say?

Well beloved, I don’t have anything new to share with you because the word is still the same. So, if you feel like falling, fall. If you feel like letting go, let go. If you need to give up, do it. But the only way to do any of these things is if you are falling, letting go and giving up into the hands of God. For David said in 2 Samuel 24:14, “I am in great distress. Let us fall into the hand of the LORD, for his mercy is great; but let me not fall into the hand of man.” See, I’ll never tell you that you can’t fall, I just have to make sure you know where it is you’re going to land. Stop trusting every man or woman who says they’ll hold you up. Stop relying on anybody’s arms to catch you when you fall. Be mindful of the hands you end up in because not all of them are good. Yea, Allstate says you’re in good hands with them but that comes with conditions of paying your premium. But the God we serve has everything we need in His hands for the bible says in Psalm 145:16, “When you open your hand, you satisfy the hunger and thirst of every living thing.” This is why I need you to know that you’re in good hands with God, you just have to trust Him enough to fall into them.

  1. Amen, There’s is Definite Assurance when you’ve done all you can do, said all you can say, Prayed all you can Pray – Just know Falling into the Hands of the Almighty God, is the Best Hands to Fall In – In Jesus Name – Amen …

  2. God bless you for reminding us God’s reassuring words in these difficult times. I’d rather cry while on His mighty hands than feeling safe away from Him.
