That’s right. Because I, your God, have a firm grip on you and I’m not letting go. I’m telling you, ‘Don’t panic. I’m right here to help you’. Isaiah 41:13 MSG
Our Daddy God gave us this promise, through prophet Isaiah. But, before anyone decides to disqualify his/herself, the beneficiaries of this scripture needs to be made known. In verse 8 of the same chapter, God said, “the seed of Abraham, my friend”. We are aware that those who are in Christ, are the seed of Abraham (through Jesus). So this passage is referring to believers.
Sometimes, do you feel that you are not holding tighthly onto God and that, you might slip away from Him? Beloved, this is our Daddy God assuring you. He said, “I am Yahweh, your Elohim, I am holding you with a firm grip”. Saints, be secure in the grip of our Abba Father. But, many believers have a distorted view of God the Father: some feel Jesus loves us but God the Father seeks to punish His children. Jesus said, “if you have seen me, you have seen the Father, I and my Father are one”
Jesus is all together wonderful and beautiful, just like God the Father. He demonstrates His love by saying, “don’t panic”, I can sort out the bills for you, I can get you the husband or wife you wish for, I can help you with the teenage child, I’m right here to help you”. As you go through the remaining part of this year, be conscious of the fact that our Daddy God is holding you fast and He will not let go of you. He is always beside you, offering to help you.
Prayer: Thank You Daddy God for You hold me firmly. I am conscious of this truth and I look to Your help.
