Written on His Hand!
“I have engraved you on the palms of my hands; your walls are continually before me.” Isaiah 49:16 ESV
What a marvelous, empowering and humbling moment when we are reminded of the depth of His love for us!
This specific passages has awakened my spirit and caused a stirring within. As I meditate on this verse I am simply in awe of His majesty. How do we even begin to grasp the truths with our finite minds?
I envision Jesus before His Father, saying, “Look at this one (insert your name) engraved on My palm. I love them, and I am praying to You Father for them, protect them, and bless them. Heal them, prosper them, let them know Your outrageous overflowing abundance.”
Reflecting on John 10:28 ESV “I give them eternal life, and they will never perish, and no one will snatch them out of my hand.” is absolute freedom! Jesus Christ bridged the gap and brought us into right relationship with God the Father. We are in His hand!
“and no one will snatch them out of my hand.” According to John 10 we are the sheep and He is our shepherd. The sheep are within his care, under his watchful eye, and in his hand. Our enemies are so daring that they have the audacity to attempt to snatch us out of His hand but the enemy cannot do it. All those who are in the hands of Jesus are safe.
We’re written on the palm of His hand and no one can take us away from Him.
The lyrics of this song parallels the passage:
"No pow'r of hell, no scheme of man
Can ever pluck me from his hand
Till He returns or call me home
Here in the pow'r of Christ I'll Stand.”
