Hold to God's Hand

     While shopping with our young children, I never held their little hand. Instead, I held out two fingers and told them they were to hold onto me. The only way the hold was to be broken was for them to let go. As I look back on that arrangement it reminds me of holding onto God's hand (figuratively). He has extended His hand to us and it is up to us to take hold and not let go. Whenever the hold is broken, it never is God who lets go, it is always us.

We are not to let go when we don't want to go where He leads.

We are not to let go when the glitter of the world beckons.

We are not to let go when trials and temptations come.

He is always faithful and never lets go because

He loves us and wants what's best for us.

"For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life."

John 3:16


The Lord is not slow about His promise, as some count slowness, but is patient toward you, not wishing for any to perish but for all to come to repentance.

2 Peter 3:9

No temptation has overtaken you but such as is common to man; and God is faithful, who will not allow you to be tempted beyond what you are able, but with the temptation will provide the way of escape also, so that you will be able to endure it.

1 Corinthians 10:13
