Day Twenty Two – He Holds You in His Hand
“The Lord directs the steps of the godly. He delights in every detail of their lives. Though they stumble, they will never fall, for the Lord holds them by the hand” (Psalm 32:23-24).
Did you know that God delights in you completely and not just you but also every detail of your life? He directs our steps even. He knows we will make mistakes and fall yet He will never let us fall completely, He holds us by His hand. Does that bring you comfort? It does me.
I know this journey will be hard sometimes. There will be times that you may feel like you want to be disobedient. You may not want to try to work things out. There will be times that your sibling(s) will feel this way too. Hang in there and cry out to God. He will uphold you and help.
It is evidence that we are desperate for a Savior and that is the reason Christ came. He lived a perfectly obedient life. He died on the cross so we could be truly set as righteous before God. He exchanged the punishment we deserved for His righteousness. All has been settled and all is done. It happened at the cross. So if you are His He knows your thoughts, He knows when you will turn the wrong way however He will continue to guide you and help you turn back. Isn’t that amazing?
If God can do that with us then maybe we can follow His example and extend that same grace to others, especially our brothers and sisters. Just cry out to Him He will help.
Today is simple. I want you to pause five times today and pray for your sibling(s). Whatever is going on in your day, lift it up to the Lord. Maybe activities will remind you like when you do this devotional in the morning pray, then at breakfast pray, lunch, dinner, and bedtime. Pray.
Encourage your kids in the power of prayer.
