The Sheep of His Hand

February 1, 2019


The Sheep of His Hand

The LORD God Almighty created us  and loves us  very dearly.     We have to admit  that we belong  to God  because He made us.     And,  more than that,  when we became lost  in our sins,  God became our Savior  and Redeemer  in Jesus Christ.    That’s something  to think about.

For these reasons,  we need  to keep these facts in mind  and live  according to these truths.     These are not  things we should  nonchalantly  slough off.      We most surely will face  all sorts of situations  that might cause us  to forget  who we are  or  make us fear  for our safety.     Those are the times  when we need  to be aware  of who we are  and  who God Almighty is.

Psalm 95:6  dwells on these thoughts  and then invites us,

Come,  let us worship  and bow down;   
Let us kneel  before the LORD  our Maker.   
For He is our God,   
And we  are the people  of His pasture, 
       and  the sheep of His hand.

All of the historical and archeological evidences connected  to the Bible  are proof  that God made prophecies  and kept His word.     That is vital  to remember.      When we see  how the Lord kept detailed promises  about the Savior  from sin,  we can deduce  that God’s word  regarding creation  and Judgment Day are also factual.

That is what gives us good reason  to listen  to the psalmist’s invitation  to worship and bow down  to the  “LORD our Maker”.     It only makes sense  to realize  that  “He is our God”  because these sorts of things  cannot all be accidental.

It is only logical  to then realize  that all of the Bible’s promises  about God’s love  are also true.     God made promises  of forgiveness  through faith  in Jesus Christ.     God also made promises  of eternal judgments  for all  who refuse to look  at the facts  He has been setting before us,  to prove the truths  of His love and salvation.

Let us rejoice  in Who takes care  of us.

When we are called  “the people of His pasture,  and the sheep of His hand,  that is showing us  our dependence  upon the God  who created us.     We need God.     We have to realize  how vulnerable we are  to all sorts  of dangers.     Only God  can give us the victories we need  on this earth — and He is longing  to do just that.

Close by our Maker’s side,  we say,  “Hallelujah!     LORD,  You are my Maker  and Defender.     You sustain me  and tenderly care  for me.     Thank You  for Your faithful love.”
