I Am Written on God’s Hand

. at . 4 comments

“See, I have written your name on the palms of my hands. Always in my mind is a picture of Jerusalem’s walls in ruins” (Isaiah 49:16New Living Translation).

God is telling me He thinks about me and my problems ALWAYS. So I don't need to fret. He has the power, love, and inclination to help.

Lord, help me to exercise my faith to believe this instead of worrying or fearing. Psalm 139 is another good portion of Scripture to read when I feel that God is not inclined to notice me.

Your Turn. Dear Believer, This encouragement is also for you. You are written on God’s hand. You are in God’s thoughts. Do you know this? Believe it? What step can you take today to show faith?

NOTE: This is the 3rd photo in my series, A Spring of Self Portraits. This is an item from my Spring Bucket List.

The list of the portraits is after the (more…) button. Just click on it.

    Peaceful, beautiful reminder perfectly illustrated. Thank you for it!

    Depending on the Bible version you use, you may or may not have this verse but since I have found such peace within it, and since it comes to mind again with your post, I am sure you will agree that it is beautiful and apt.

    I find myself meditating on it as a gentle peaceful drift into His ever-there hands.

    “Let us fall into the hands of the Lord
    and not into the hands of men,
    For equal to his majesty
    is the mercy that he shows.”

    Sirach (also recorded as Wisdom of Ben Sira in some versions) 2:18 NAB

    Thank you for adding the beauty of your post to what is a very special day for me.

    Peace.

      Thanks for sharing your verse, Hidden Lives. It is soooooo beautiful and apt. And also so TRUE – God is matchless in His majesty and mercy toward us.

      Your “pot” story goes very well with this verse too. :)

      I hope and pray you have a multitude of special days, Hidden Lives.
