Yesterday, we looked at what God’s everlasting arm is. Today, we shall be looking at what those arms can and will do for you.
The everlasting arm of God is a hand of protection and strength. If you want to be protected against the wiles of the wicked and you want His strength to see you through this wicked world, you must lean on these arms.
That song writer says:
“Leaning on Jesus
Leaning on Jesus
Safe and secure from all alarms
Leaning on Jesus
Leaning on Jesus
Leaning on the Everlasting Arms”
The Psalmist in Psalm 46:1-3 says that even if the world were to end, you don’t need to be afraid, just put your confidence in God’s ability to save. There is assurance and hope in God’s protection day and night (Psalm 121:1). Do not trust on other gods but the Almighty God alone, who created the heaven and the earth. He is all-powerful, He watches over you. You are safe and secured under His everlasting arms.
Family, friends, colleagues, and so on may disappoint, but God will never fail or disappoint you. He is never too tired or busy to protect you. His strength is the source of your strength. When you feel everything is crushing down on you and you cannot go another step, remember that you can call upon God to renew your strength. God’s everlasting arms are the arms of love. He loves and cares for your wellbeing. He is eager to do the best in your life if only you will let Him.
In Jeremiah 31:3, God says, He has loved you with an everlasting love and He has drawn you with His lovingkindness. Romans 5:8 says that even as a sinner, God loved you and sent His only begotten Son Jesus Christ to die for you. This is amazing, beloved. His arms are arms of guidance and only in His arms, you can find refuge. Trust in His alms alone because when you do that, you will not sink in the ocean of the world. Leaning on His everlasting arms will bring you comfort and joy, and all impossibilities will become possible for you.
- Almighty God, I commit my life and family into Your hands, Keep us in Your secret place, in the name of Jesus.
- Lord Jesus, keep me where the hands of the enemy cannot touch me, in the name of Jesus.
- Father, my life is in Your hands, be my refuge and my fortress, in the name of Jesus.
- By the power in the blood of Jesus, no weapon fashioned against me and my family shall prosper, in the name of Jesus.
- Lord Jesus, my life is in Your hand, cover me with Your feathers, in the name of Jesus.
- All conspiracies and evil schemes directed against me and my family, be frustrated, in the name of Jesus.
- Every power-seeking my life to devour it, die, in the name of Jesus.
