Let Me Hold You

God's Love

Whenever I see an ocean whether in a picture or in real life I am utterly in awe!  Can you grasp how wide or long or high or deep Jesus Christ’s love is for us? Take a minute and breathe in what God is saying to you.

Have you found yourself saying to God,  “I’m holding on Lord but I don’t know how long I can keep it up.”

There is a song by Casting Crowns entitled “Just Be Held” .  Simply put God is saying “Let Go”. We keep trying to hold on to people, things and problems but in our weariness we let go of Him.  This song says “Just Be Held”.

In this same song  you hear the Father saying  “Your world’s not falling apart but falling into place” .   The more I listened the more I began to grasp just how much God loves me!  God has it all under control.

I could hear my Father saying  “It is ok to let go.  Let Me hold you”.

 

Ephesians 3:16-19 (NIV)

16 I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being, 17 so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, 18 may have power, together with all the Lord’s holy people, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, 19 and to know this love that surpasses knowledge—that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God.

 

Final thoughts!

God loved us so much that He sent His only Son Jesus to die on the Cross for us.  What has taken you captive?  Do you believe God has abandoned you?   Whatever your captivity may be, know that God will end it in His time.  Until then allow to be held by the Father.  He won’t let go of you.
