“God Holds Your Hand” (Psalm 37: 5, HCSB) by Carley Evans


“Take delight in the Lord, and He will give you your heart’s desires.” (Psalm 37: 4)

“Be silent before the Lord and wait expectantly for Him.” (Psalm 37: 7)

‘Silence before God’ implies a deep relaxation in faith that God is in control, that His will for your life is perfect, that He knows the plans He has made for you, plans for good.

The psalmist tells you, “Do not be agitated.” For “the humble will inherit the land and will enjoy abundant prosperity.” (Psalm 37: 8, 11) But David also writes that “the little that the righteous man has is better than the abundance of many wicked people.” (Psalm 37: 16)

David reassures you that “a man’s steps are established by the Lord, and He takes pleasure in his way. Though he falls, he will not be overwhelmed, because the Lord holds his hand.” (Psalm 37: 23 – 24)

I tell you now that God is holding your hand; He leads you in His way — the way of everlasting life.
