Isaiah 41:13 "For I the Lord thy God will hold thy hand, saying unto thee, Fear not; I will help thee"
It seems like yesterday that my whole family would gather around our TV in our basement every Sunday night to watch the Ed Sullivan show. Anyone with a TV set was doing the exact same thing, all across America. On one particular Sunday night in February of that year, a band from England rocked the nation with their new hit called I Wanna Hold Your Hand. The band…the Beatles.
In Isaiah 41:13, the prophet Isaiah says "For I the Lord thy God will hold thy hand". How many of you know that a child holding on to a mother's hand is never as secure as when the mother holds the child's hand. I would always grab hold of my daughter's hand when she was young, when we were in a store or at some kind of event. I held her hand tighter and more secure than she held mine.
I want you to encourage you, you're not holding on to God's hand, God is holding on to your hand, and He'll never let go. The verse says "I will hold your hand, fear not". When God holds your hand, there's nothing to be afraid of. Even when we are weak, His hand is strong. Hallelujah! Do you feel weak today? He's holding on to you.
You might ask, "What about Psalm 51 where it says, "Take not your Holy Spirit from me"? David prayed that because he was under a dispensation where the Holy Spirit would come upon you, and the Holy Spirit would go. As a born again believer, the Holy Spirit lives and abides in you, and will never leave you, ever, no matter what. That's good news for us today. Let that sink in. Rest and be secure in His love for you. He will never let go.
