GIVE HIM YOUR HAND
Isa 41:13 For I the LORD thy God will hold thy right hand, saying unto thee, Fear not; I will help thee
Deu 31:6 Be strong and of a good courage, fear not, nor be afraid of them: for the LORD thy God, he it is that doth go with thee; he will not fail thee, nor forsake thee.
Brethren and friends, any attempt to go solo without surrendering our hands for God to hold is an indication of grave danger and open rebellion.
1Pet 5:8 ¶ Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour:
It is the design of the devil that we think we can walk without the assistance of God. The prodigal son attempted it and we all know the result.
Once the Lord let go your hands or you wriggle out your hands from his grip, it is an indication of handing it over to the devil to hold.
You must be held by somebody. Who is holding your hands? You alone can answer the question. From the external stand point, man can suspect who is holding your hands by your character and conduct.
Col 1:13 Who hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated us into the kingdom of his dear Son:
Eph 5:8 For ye were sometimes darkness, but now are ye light in the Lord: walk as children of light:
God cannot hold your hands if you are not willing to let go of sin.
God cannot hold your hands if you are comfortable with the devil holding it.
God cannot hold your hands if your hand is busy fluctuating and slippery from one control to another.
Holding your hands means being in charge of your life.
Re 3:20 Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me.
Repent and submit your hands at baptism Act 22:6. If you have already been baptized, then make a u turn and surrender to his lordship over you.
God bless you all.
