“See, I have engraved you on the palms of my hands;
your walls are ever before me..’
“My sheep listen to my voice; I know them, and they follow me. I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; no one can snatch them out of my hand. My Father, who has given them to me, is greater than all; no one can snatch them out of my Father’s hand. “
We are of such inestimable value to the Father that He has engraved each of us on the palms of His hands. The scriptures don’t actually say whether it is our name, or images, or both that are engraved or tattooed there. But it is defining and specific to each of us,
our individual faces and lives are before Him constantly.
We are always on His mind. His desire is for relationship with us, now and forever.
He loves us!
With our human minds we cannot begin to comprehend this.
But realize this: His ways and thoughts are higher than ours,
but as His children we can take Him at His word and trust Him.
All that we are, and ultimately our eternal futures, are wrapped up in Him.
If we hear His voice and follow Him, we cannot be snatched from His Hand,
come what may. As the storms and trials of this life swirl around us, even as we are shaken,
He never lets go of us.
Take comfort and confidence in these things, beloved, not because they feel good,
but because they are true.
