My Father, who has given them to me, is greater than all. No one is able to snatch them out of my Father’s hand. (WEB)
In today's Bible reading, we read an assuring promise from Jesus... No one can ever snatch you out of your Father's hand! Just prior to making this statement, Jesus said that no one could snatch His sheep out of His hand either!
The point is that you and I are safe and secure in the embrace of the Triune God. They are one in heart and one in purpose towards us. In Psalm 91, we read that we actually live in the secret place of the Most High. Our resting place is under the shadow of the Almighty!
What can touch us there? What can steal our peace? We are completely safe and secure in the arms of God both now and for eternity. My prayer today is that we would all know this deep in our hearts so that our lives would not be ruled by fear.
1 John 5:18
We know that whoever is born of God doesn’t sin, but he who was born of God keeps himself, and the evil one doesn’t touch him. (WEB)
