I cling to You; Your strong right hand holds me securely. – (Psalm 63:8, NLT)
I stay close to You, and You hold me with Your powerful arm. – (Psalm 63:8, ERV)
My soul clings to You; Your right hand reaches down and holds me up. – (Psalm 63:8, VOICE)
I find myself in a season where so many facets of my life are new and unknown. As I tread into territory that I have never traversed before, I am overwhelmingly grateful for the certainty and security that I know in Christ. Much of the new that lies before me is exciting and holds great promise, yet without God, I would be in a constant state of overload in my own uncertainty as to how I need to navigate each next step as it arrives. In Christ, I can rest assured that He goes before me, remains with me, and will hold me up through each next step of this journey that is unfolding in front of me. My soul will ever cling to Christ, as He is where my hope and strength is found. May we ever stay close to the Lord, as He will uphold us with His mighty hand.
My soul clings to You,
O Lord God above;
As You take my hand,
Uphold me in love.
As I cling to You,
My strength is assured;
For Your strong right hand,
Holds me up secure.
O Lord, in all things,
Keep me close to You;
No matter what comes,
Your grace sees me through.
Dear Heavenly Father, thank You that as we cling to You, You hold us up with Your mighty hands. Thank You that no matter how uncertain things seem all around us, our hope in You is secure forever. Forgive us for allowing what we see before us to give fear or anxiety a foothold. Teach us to trust You more, so that we would cling to You in faith, knowing that You will hold us secure, regardless of what we see. Show us how to love those around us in a way that encourages and builds others up, especially in the spaces where they feel the most uncertain. May many come into a lasting relationship with You. Be glorified O God, as we cling to You and praise You for holding us secure with Your mighty hands. Amen.
