The Front Porch: God's Hands
God’s hand is extended to you like the hand of a close friend. He doesn’t reach out to you to keep at a distance, but to draw you close to His heart; not to forbid you access to His love, but to pour it upon you in abundance.
Jesus is the sunrise of your morning, and the sunset of your day. His mercy will greet you every morning, and His goodness will tuck you in each night.
“Great is his faithfulness; his mercies begin afresh each day.” Lamentations 3:23 (NLT)
Loved with everlasting love,
Led by grace that love to know;
Spirit, breathing from above,
Thou hast taught me it is so!
Oh, this full and perfect peace!
Oh, this transport all divine!
In a love which cannot cease,
I am His, and He is mine.
--G. Wade Robinson
The Lord wants you to rest in His love. His love will never fail you. Everything that is good in your life has been started by Him, is sustained by Him, and will be completed by Him. He is involved in every detail of your life.
“…I know whom I have believed and am persuaded that He is able to keep what I have committed to Him until that Day.” 2 Timothy 1:12 (NKJV)
“I am sure that God, who began the good work within you, will continue his work until it is finally finished on that day when Christ Jesus comes back again.” Philippians 1:6 (NLT)
