You’re in His hands


ISAIAH 49:16
Have you ever sat and thought about a Blue Whale? Probably not. Well, let’s do it right now. The Blue Whale is the biggest living creature in the whole world. Its heart is the size of a car, its tongue weighs as much as an elephant, 50 adult humans could stand inside its mouth and you could take a swim down its arteries. Don’t you think that’s amazing? Now check out the smallest frogs in the world: they live in Cuba, they never get bigger than a centimetre and they can happily sit on a penny! The point is; If God could think up, create and sustain such incredible creatures, taking care to give them beautiful colours, character and makes sure they are in the right environment to survive; how much more do you think He will do for you? ‘Look at the wildflowers…have you ever seen colours and designs quite like them? If God gives such attention to the wildflowers, don’t you think he’ll attend to you, take pride in you, do his best for you?’ (Luke 12:26-28 TM). You don’t need to worry or fear, coz God’s got your back! Listen: ‘I have written your name on the palms of my hands’ (Isaiah 49:16). Do you ever write something on your hand so you don’t forget? This verse is saying that God has that sort of intimate awareness of your life. What an incredible thought; the maker of the universe, who flung the stars into space, thinks about you! He watches over you, making sure you’re safe. Like a parent watches over their child, your Heavenly Father looks after you. Think on that today!
