The psalmist says that God’s hand will lead you, and his right hand will hold you. This is an amazing truth—no matter where we go, God is leading us and holding us. You cannot get away from his Spirit or flee from his presence.
Believer, you are stuck with God because God sticks with you. He loves you. He holds you. I know at times your emotions say that he’s far away, he has abandoned you, and forgotten your needs. It simply is not true. Even if you were to “dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea,” he would be with you.
In your relationships, God is leading you and holding you. Sometimes we can become too focused on fixing, mending, or trying to handle the problem on our own. I encourage you to breathe, to rest, to rely upon God—to be still and know that he is God. He is holding onto you. He has you. In your current difficulty, start to recognize God’s presence and thank him. He is near.
Lord, I believe that you are near. I need your help to fully trust these things in your Word. In faith, I proclaim that you are holding onto me, even though my relationships are tense right now. You are going before me…. (Continue praying.)
