Safe and Secure

He leads me and He holds me. He leads you and He holds you.

Now, let those words sink in. Read those verses again that tell us God’s hand will lead us and also hold us. This has comforted me more than once through a time of silence, waiting, wondering, and uncertainty. While I cannot see clearly what is going on, I can still know God is leading me all the way and He is caring for me through this journey and He holds me in His hand.

Here is how my heart is letting these verses sink in:

He leads me - He is in control.
This is His to do - I follow as He leads.
I trust Him each step of the way - each silent and difficult waiting step of the way.
He holds me - this is His protection.
His tender care – this is a security I can know.
This is definitely comforting when faced with uncertainty and fear.

I am glad He holds me – safe and secure.
I am glad He leads me - I won’t be far behind.
This is how I stay in close relationship with the Lord.
This is my walk with the Lord.
He leads me - I follow close behind Him.
He holds me all the way.
He will hold you all the way…

Psalm 139:9-10
If I take the wings of the morning, and dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea, Even there Your hand shall lead me, and Your right hand shall hold me.

Psalm 63:8 My soul follows close behind You; Your right hand upholds me.
