(NLT) See, I have written your name on the palms of my hands…
As toddlers crawling on the ground, there’s the tendency that anything their hands touch enters their mouth. Ever witnessed how a toddler cries after a loving mother snatches away from his hand that filthy object ready to enter his mouth? That’s exactly what God does to us on most occasions.
We always think we know what’s best for our lives, but realize we know nothing after we see the resulting effect of a wrong decision we nearly took.
In ourselves, we can’t be in charge of our lives, that’s why we need God to steer the wheels of our lives for us. Jeremiah knew this perfectly when he said in Jeremiah 10:23, “O Lord, I know that the way of man is not in himself: it is not in man that walketh to direct his steps”.
God loves you more than you ever love yourself such that He has your image tattooed in His palm. No one dares scrape you away from His palm.
This is the reason God will cause you to lose that job, miss that admission, miss that bus, be excluded from that conspiracy plan, lose that gentleman or woman in that relationship, just so that you will escape that tragedy He sees ahead and bring your way that better plan He has in mind for you.
As long as your steps are committed to Him and ordered by Him, be rest assured He knows what’s best for you. (Prov. 3:5-7). We need not fret and complain like the heathen when events happen in our lives we do not understand.
INSIGHT: So long as your steps are committed to God and ordered by Him, be rest assured He knows what’s best for you.
