Safe in the hands of God!
The devil desires to shred you to pieces. He has planted enemies, traps, and snares all around you. On the job, in the home, in the church, in your family. Anywhere and everywhere that he can to try and kill, destroy, and tear you down.
But The Lord God is laughing at your enemies because He is on your side and as long as you are in His hands, there is nothing or no one who can snatch you out nor remove you from the eternal and safe hands of God almighty!
“And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand. My Father, which gave them me, is greater than all; and no man is able to pluck them out of my Father’s hand. I and my Father are one,” John 10:28-30.
Crushed but not dead!
I know it’s hard and you can’t see your way. It’s hard to sleep, think, eat and function on a daily basis because you are being bombarded on every side and you can take no more.
But if you really assess your situation, none of your circumstances has killed you.
The master potter has you in his hands and He is making you and molding you into His vessel. It really does feel that you are being crushed and shattered to pieces, but you are not dead.
God is just giving you a make over!
“The Lord gave another message to Jeremiah. He said, “Go down to the potter’s shop, and I will speak to you there.” So I did as he told me and found the potter working at his wheel. But the jar he was making did not turn out as he had hoped, so he crushed it into a lump of clay again and started over,” Jeremiah 18:1-4.
You are only steps away!
By now you feel that you are walking in the wrong direction on this journey because you are feeling the heat as it is being turned up in your situation, but don’t turn around or give in to the intense pressure and the raging fires that are trying you because The Lord says that you are only steps away from your breakthrough.
“But he knows where I am going. And when he tests me, I will come out as pure as gold,” Job 23:10.
