Upholder

If You’re Faltering

11/27/2019

I’ve had the blessing of holding our newborn children and grandchildren. Holding them was no problem. They weren’t heavy. As a matter of fact, it was a delight to hold them. I could intently gaze on their faces. I could pray for them. The more I held them, the deeper my love grew. Wouldn’t it have been silly if our little ones had argued, “Don’t hold me. I’m too heavy.” Or, what if they had said, “I don’t want to bother you. You don’t need to hold me.” In light of that, consider our Heavenly Father’s words in Isaiah 41:10, “I am your God. I will strengthen you, surely I will help you, surely I will UPHOLD you with My righteous right hand.” In the Bible, God’s right hand symbolizes His strength. His right hand is a strong hand of righteousness. We can relax in His hands. As He upholds us, we become increasingly aware of His deep love for us. In case you feel like you are faltering, be assured – your UPHOLDER has you.

LORD, Thank You for UPHOLDING us with Your righteous right hand. Thank You for the depth of Your love for us. Thank You that we don’t have to be afraid.  

“For I am the Lord your God, who UPHOLDS your right hand,
Who says to you, ‘Do not fear, I will help you.’”  Isaiah 41:13

“For I am the Lord your God, who upholds your right hand,
Who says to you, ‘Do not fear, I will help you.’” 

Isaiah 41:13

October 8th, I had the precious blessing of holding our newborn grandchild. Holding him was no problem.  He wasn’t heavy to me. As a matter of fact, it was a delight and joy to hold him. I could intently look into his face. I could pray for him. The more I held him, the deeper my love for him grew. Wouldn’t it have been silly if he had argued, “Oh, don’t hold me. I’m too heavy.” Or, what if he had said, “I don’t want to bother you. You don’t need to hold me.” In the same way, our Heavenly Father says, “I am your God. I will strengthen you, surely I will help you, surely I will uphold you with My righteous right hand,” Isaiah 41:10. In the Bible, God’s right hand symbolizes His strength. His right hand is the strong hand of righteousness. We can relax in His hands. We can become increasingly aware of His deep love for us. 

LORD, Thank You for UPHOLDING me with Your righteous right hand. Thank You for the depth of Your love for me.
