The steps of a man are established by the LORD and He delights in his way. When he falls, he will not be hurled headlong, because the LORD is the One who holds his hand. Psalm 37:23-24.
Today your LORD (יהוה) God (אלהים) says:
One thing that you must know, I will NEVER let you go. I have a no-slip grip and you are in My hand. My hands were pierced for you, your unclean hands, Isaiah 1:15, became Mine, and cleansed your hands are now by Christ’s pure blood divine! Though your sins were as scarlet, now they’re white as snow for in the blood of Jesus your sins no longer show. Isaiah 1:18.
I have hold of your hand. I establish your steps and hold you upright, if you fall you will not be hurled headlong because I have hold of your hand. Psalm 37:23-24.
Sometimes, like a small child that loses sight of the parent, you feel alone and afraid, but no matter how you feel, and no matter how far you have wandered away from Me, I am continually with you, I have taken hold of your right hand. With My counsel I will guide you, and afterward receive you to glory. Psalm 73:23.
I know when you sit and when you stand, I guard your comings and your goings, and through it all I have hold of your hand. I have put My Words in your mouth and covered you with the shadow of My hand. That is perfect protection and that is pure joy. Joy in My no-slip grip. Joy resting in My hand. Joy putting your hand into Mine.
Do not be so anxious and fearful of things, looking everywhere for help, I am a very present help in time of trouble, and, indeed, at all times. Anything you need, any question that you have, any difficulty you face, I am there to help you and I have the means to do so abundantly, according to My riches in glory, which come to you in Christ Jesus.
You are fed, even in famine, by My hand.
Your help comes from Me, who made Heaven and earth, whether I use other people (even your enemies), unusual sources of supply and instruction, creative ideas, or angelic intervention, I will not allow your foot to slip. I keep you, all the time. I do not slumber nor sleep. You can always take hold of My hand.
And when you call I take hold of your hand with My no-slip grip and pull you out of deep waters, like Jesus did for Peter, I pull you out of the pit, as I did for Joseph, Jacob’s son, and I lead you to safety, as My angels did when they took hold of Lot’s hand when he would not leave Sodom though the wrath was about to fall, and they pulled him out and led him to a safe place.
So if you are falling, going over the edge of a precipice, sinking into the water, in a shipwreck, in a plane crash, I have a no-slip grip to catch you and deliver you out of that situation. I grab you before you fall to peril, to pull you out of the deep waters, Psalm 18:16-17, to bring you through the fire, and to pull you out of miry clay of the swamp you are stuck in. I even send angels to hold lions’ mouths shut as I did for My prophet Daniel.
Cry out to Me and I hear your voice for I am right there with you. Like Jonah thrown overboard into the raging sea. I pulled him out in a most unusual manner but it took him out of the water right to the place he was meant to have gone in the first place before he took the detour from My perfect plan for his life. Jonah 2:2-10.
I rescued David out of many perilous places and he sang, “He inclined to me and heard my cry. He brought me up out of the pit of destruction, out of the miry clay, and He set my feet upon a rock making my footsteps firm. He put a new song in my mouth, a song of praise to our God; many will see and fear and will trust in the LORD.” Psalm 40:1-3.
I am your keeper; I am your shade on your right hand. The sun will not smite you by day, nor the moon by night. I will protect you from evil, I will keep your soul. I will guard your going out and your coming in from this time forth and forever. Psalm 121:2-8.
When you understand this, there is no more room for fear and agitation. Instead your life becomes a place of perfect joy as you rest your hand in the One who loves you, your forever Father.
When you know and believe I am guarding your going out and coming in, you go out with joy and come in in peace. As Jesus told the woman healed of the hemorrhage that attacked her body for twelve years, “go into peace and be free of this affliction.” Only peace, and the joy which flows from that peace, would keep her healing and not allow the devil to get back in with that illness again.
Job at first, before he knew Me, and he had no written Word as you do, was not at peace or in joy. He was worried about his children and his property. And when the devil attacked him, Job stated, “The dread I dread comes upon me, and what I fear has come in, I am not at ease nor am I quiet and I am not at rest, but agitation and disquiet comes.” Job 3:25. He was calling in exactly what came. He called those things that be not as though they were and in they came. Be careful about putting yourself in the devil’s hand. Job 1:12.
The devil had not gained entrance to him before for My hedge was around him, Job 1:10, but Job’s fear and his words confirming it opened a way for the devil to enter through that hedge. Watch what feelings you open your door to and what things you are calling in. Watch out for whose hand you are reaching for.
Get used to saying that you are safe in My hand, that you are in My NO-SLIP grip and the devil cannot get you out.
Jesus shared this with you, “My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me; and I give eternal life to them, and they will never perish; and no one will snatch them out of My hand. My Father, who has given them to Me, is greater than all; and no one is able to snatch them out of the Father’s hand. I and the Father are one.” John 10:27-30.
That is a no-slip grip. Rest your hand in My hand.
I have searched you and I know you. I know when you sit down and when you rise up. I understand your thoughts from afar. I scrutinize your paths as you go about your days. I know when you lay down. I know where you are every moment and I am there holding you in My hand. I am intimately acquainted with all your ways.
Please know that I cherish you. That you are precious to Me. Just as a parent takes a child by the hand to keep them close to them out in a public place, so I do with you.
And often you see a tiny child slip their hand into the hand of another for comfort and security. And you will see lovers, friends, spouses taking hold of one another’s hand and walking together or just sitting close together happy to just hold hands.
Even before there is a word on your tongue, I know it all. I have enclosed you behind and before, and laid My hand upon you. There is no place you can flee to that is apart from Me, even in the most remote places upon the earth. Even there My hand will lead you and My right hand will lay hold of you.
I put My left hand under your head and with My right hand I embrace you. I encompass you with My goodness and protection. In My left hand are riches and honor and in My right hand is long life, that is, healing and youthful vigor.
My hands made you, My hands shape you when things get out of shape, and My hands hold you forever. You can sing for joy in My hands, like a little bird in the nest.
You are all the work of My hands.
And I stretch out My hands to you all the day, waiting for you to reach out with love and take hold of Mine. And when you do, you will find that I have carved your name in the palm of My hand.
And do you recall what Jesus did when the little children came to Him? He took them up in His hands and embraced and blessed them. And in seeing Him, you see Me. Let Me lay My hand upon your head in blessing. Blessings are on the head of the righteous, and so you are in Jesus. In Him, you are the righteousness of God.
And think of His healing hands that reached out and touched the leper and cleansed him. He touched blind eyes and they saw. He touched deaf ears and they were opened to hear. He touched mute tongues and they spoke. He laid hands on the sick and they became well. And He told you to do the same in His Name. Let Me extend My hands through your hands as I did through the hands of Jesus when He walked among you in the flesh.
I am the LORD, I have called you in righteousness, I will also hold you by the hand and watch over you. And I will appoint you as a covenant to the people, as a light to the nations, to open blind eyes, to bring out prisoners from the dungeon, and those who dwell in darkness from the prison. Isaiah 42:6.
You may have many friends, you may have a large family, you may be surrounded with many people who love you, or you may be without any of that at all and living by yourself with not many who seem to care about you, but no matter what your situation, no matter how far you may have wandered or how close to Me you may have stayed, whether you have been destroying your life or living it to the full, you only have One who really loves you unconditionally, who died to take away all your sins, ills, and pains, who came to serve you and not be served and is still the same yesterday, today, and forever, that has an unending supply to take care of your needs, who seeks your fellowship night and day and never tires being with you, but rather delights in being with you, has only your best interests in mind, has promised you eternal life and has given you a kingdom, who wants to reveal to you all truth, that gave you His body and blood, who made a covenant with you that will never be broken, who wants to prosper you and give you success, who want to see you in good health all the time and has given you healing already, and is with you always and will never leave you or forsake you, and that is Me. No one else made you. No one else knows you like I do. And no one else will raise you up on the last day and give you a glorious immortal body to join with your spirit and soul. There is no one else that loves you with perfect, everlasting love as I do. And if you want, you can hold hands with Me now and forever. I have a no-slip grip.
I love you. Do you know that yet? If not, it is time we talked. Come to Me and I will introduce you to Jesus. I will show you My Yeshuah.
I pray that you, being rooted and grounded in love, may be able to comprehend with all the believers what is the breadth and length and height and depth, and to know the love of Christ which surpasses knowledge, that you may be filled up to all the fullness of God.” Ephesians 3:17-19.
