Be strong and courageous. Do not fear or be in dread of them, for it is the Lord your God who goes with you. He will not leave you or forsake you.” Deuteronomy 31:6
“Hold you?” This is what one of our children would say when they wanted to be carried. They would walk up to their dad or me, stretch their little arms as far as they could and say, “Hold you?” They always asked it as a question, but we understood what they meant. They were asking, “Will you hold me?” They always knew right where to come when they needed rest or comfort. They knew if they needed us that we were always right there.
This week I have been saying this to God. I have needed to be held. Just as my children knew where to go when they needed to be held, I know where to go when I need to be held by my Heavenly Father.
Do you need to be held today? Maybe life has thrown some obstacles your way and you feel the need for protection or comfort. Maybe you are facing some uncertainty in your life and you need God’s guidance. Go to Him, climb up in His arms and let Him hold you.
In the verse that we are reading today we are made a promise. God has said, ” I will never leave you or forsake you,”
In Matthew 11:28-30 we read: “Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.”
God wants us to come to Him as a child to his father. He wants us to find comfort in Him. God wants us to find rest and protection in His arms.
Will you go to Him?
I want to encourage you today. No matter what you are facing, God is there. He is waiting for you to come to Him. He is waiting to offer you peace, comfort, and rest in Him.
I have found no better place to go than to the arms of God. Remember His promise: I will never leave you or forsake you.
