You have given him dominion over the works of your hands...
We all hope and pray that 2021 will be a better year. This past year was filled with dread and despair, as the pandemic disrupted our lives and brought many changes and challenges to our nation and world. Where do we turn for help and hope? Some say our future is in the hands of random chance or the alignment of the planets and stars. However, the psalmist assures us that we and all creation are the work of God’s hands.
A well-known ad says you’re in good hands with the
right insurance company. But God’s Word gives us the
absolute assurance that our future is safe and secure in the hands of our Creator and Redeemer. You’re in good hands, because you’re in God’s hands.
Almighty God, you’ve got the whole world in your hands. Hold us close to you, now and forever. Amen.
Reflect: Assure those who are living in dread of what lies ahead that God holds us in his hands.
