Scripture: And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are called according to his purpose. (Romans 8:28)                                                                                   

Special Reading: Psalm 121, Psalm 27, “Just Give Me Jesus” by Anne Graham Lotz

As Christians we are heir to almighty God. The Bible tells us we are his children, his son’s and daughters. Because God is our Father, we stand in line to receive all he has for us; all that belongs to him belongs to you and me. We are part of the family of God.

When Satan comes to destroy us he has to get God’s permission to approach us. You see, God has placed a hedge around us just as it was around Job. (Job Chapter 1) Satan cannot touch us unless God moves that hedge. The holiness of God surrounds each of us, no one can take us out of the Master’s hand. (John 10: 27-30)

The Bible says, “All things work together for good to those that love the Lord,” see the scripture above. So, you see, Satan cannot directly reach us, God has to allow him to approach us. The shield of Jesus Christ covers us; and it’s our Lord himself who stands in the gap between us and Glory. Jesus stands as our protection. The Devil has to get permission to touch our body, but he can’t touch our soul.

So, when those mountains come, whatever they are, remember you’re taking it from the Father’s hand. Because we know God has allowed it as part of that process that will make us what he wants us to be. We’re taking it from the Father’s hand because he has something ahead for us. We’re taking it from the Father’s hand because there is a lesson we need to learn or because someone needs to see Jesus in our life. Yes, we may be the only Bible someone else reads; consider when we stand amidst the storm, we show Jesus.

Prayer: Lord, we take the struggles and strife of life knowing you allowed them to come. We take them with the assurance that you are there to bring us through. “Taking it from the Father’s hand”, that’s a new way to think about the problems we face, the sorrow’s that come, the pain we bear in this world. It’s truly all in your hands. Lord, let the sweet, sweet savor of your presences fill us and keep us that we come forth as pure Gold. “Take it from the Father’s hand”. Oh Lord my God, My All, let me continue to rest in thee.  Amen
