The Light Daily Devotional – The Safe Hands
Focus: The Safe Hands
The word for today
As you journey into the year be mindful of the fact that you are only safe in the hands of God. It is good to be at the mercy of God alone rather than the best of men who are prone to becoming wicked!
“And David said to Gad, “I am in great distress. Please let us fall into the hand of the LORD, for His mercies are great; but do not let me fall into the hand of man.” 2 Samuel 24:14 NKJV.
King David towards the end of his life came to a critical junction where he must decide between three options. By the virtue of his experience and his walk with God in life, he decided to be at the mercy of God. You also will not but come at various junctions of choice in every facet of life; if you must be in safe hands you must decide to be on the Lord’s side.
The evil one is very aware of this very fact and will also make provision at every junction of choice. When this time comes be mindful of the fact that you are only safe at the bosom of the Lord. Be careful to live according to the will of God and live to please Him in whatever you do.
The fact that men will be available to provide help at various junctions of life does not change the fact that safe hands are found in the Lord. Do not forget that woe is the man who puts his trust in men, the position of authority, riches, and material possessions of life. Be at the mercy of God in every facet of life!
+ What would have happened if men were God?
Lord! Keep me safe in the journey of destiny, and help me to always find refuge in your hands in Jesus’ name. Amen!
Emphasis: You are not in safe hands until you find God in every issue of life!
Have a Splendid Year 2023!
