THE THE LORD UPHOLDS US WITH HIS HAND
If the LORD delights in a man's way, he makes his steps firm; though he stumble, he will not fall, for the LORD upholds him with his hand.
I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; no one can snatch them out of my hand.
Clearly in these passages we see that the Lord has a grip on our lives with His hand. Take your hands and firmly join them together. Imagine for a moment that one of them belongs to the Lord. Now the scripture say that no one can snatch us from His hand and it is His hand that upholds us so that we will not fall. I don't know about you, but when I did this hand locking illustration, there was a very comforting realisation that God has a firm hold on me. His word is true, so trust Him with your life today. He loves you and He has a firm grip on you.
Here is another neat way to demonstrate God's word as it relates to the scriptures. If you ever have the privilege of leading someone to the Lord use the same illustration of locking hands. Instead of grabbing your own hands hold the persons hand that just surrendered their life to the Lord. Tell them that the Bible says that no one can snatch them from God's hand and that nothing can separate them from His love.
