His Protecting Hand

“When thou passest through the waters, I will be with thee; and through the rivers, they shall not overflow thee: when thou walkest through the fire, thou shalt not be burned; neither shall the flame kindle upon thee.”

Isaiah 43: 2

King James Version

In the past month, I have received more than thirty emails from people who are in the middle of a crisis and are facing devastating circumstances. Jesus tells us that He will be with us and that all the criticism, sarcasm and hatred that the world and satan hurls at us will not overflow us. We will come through victorious by the protecting hand of Jesus.

I can tell you from personal experience that there is nothing, absolutely nothing, that Jesus can’t fix. He took me from under a bed in a mental hospital many years ago, lifted me up and sat me on His lap of Love, put His arms of compassion, understanding, forgiveness, mercy, grace and tenderness about me and He has never let me go, not even for one minute. Is it any wonder that I say over and over again, there is no one like Jesus! There is no friend like Jesus and nobody loves us like He does!

Yes, Jesus protects us from the poisonous darts of satan, but He also protects other people when we are the ones to hurl criticism, sarcasm and unforgiveness at them. We are so quick to point out someone else’s faults, but we don’t like to admit that we make mistakes and hurt people also.

If you are walking through a difficult time in your life, place your hand in the hand of Jesus. He will be faithful to protect, comfort, encourage and guide you. Reach out to Jesus because He is reaching out to you.
