The works of His hands are faithful and just; all His precepts are trustworthy. – (Psalm 111:7, NIV)
Everything He does is good and fair. All His commands can be trusted. – (Psalm 111:7, ERV)
All His accomplishments are truth and justice; all His instructions are certain. – (Psalm 111:7, VOICE)
My husband, on our wedding day, happened to be holding both of our wedding bands in the hollow of his hand. As he looked closely at the two symbols of our love and commitment to one another, he noticed that mine fit easily in his. He snapped a photo of our rings in his hand, and at some point, showed me the picture he had taken. Because I am such a visual person, when I saw the image, my heart held fast; for just as my Viking held our rings in the hollow of his hand, so too does God hold us in His. In the same way that his ring surrounded and protected mine, likewise is his charge as a husband to surround and protect in love as we are held in the Lord’s hands. Throughout our entire relationship so far, the image matches how my heart has been held. May we ever rest in the Lord, as we are held in His hands, for He is faithful and just, and we can trust Him in all of our ways.
Loved and protected,
For all of our days;
We’re held in His hands,
Both now and always.
We can always trust,
For His ways are sure;
He holds us in love,
In Him, we’re secure.
So, ever seek God,
Who’s faithful and just;
All His ways are good,
And worthy of trust.
Dear Heavenly Father, thank You that You give us tangible examples of how You love us and hold us in Your hands. Thank You that You are worthy of all of our trust. Forgive us for forgetting how great the hands are that hold us, as You who created all that exists are capable of holding us and leading us the ways in which we are meant to go. Teach us to trust You in all things and at all times; for You are so good. Show us how to love those around us in a way that envelops each in the goodness and faithfulness that Your love provides. May many come into a lasting relationship with You. Be glorified O God, as we trust all in Your hands. Amen.
