For I, the Lord your God, hold your right hand;
The first thing we do when we get out of the car with our grandchildren is to tell them that they must hold an adult's hand. We tell them that streets and parking lots are dangerous places for children and they willingly grab hold. They hold our hand because they trust us and accept our help getting to a safe place. As adults we often find it hard to trust others and accept help when we need it. Taking hold of an outstretched hand means we give up control, we admit our weakness. Holding hands is also a way of showing and accepting love. God promises us his outstretched hand and his help in difficult times. But we must take hold of it, let got of control and admit our weakness. Whose hand do you hold today? If it isn’t God’s then let go and take hold of the hand that you can trust to help you.
We admit our weakness and need for your protection. Give us the desire to hold on to your hand like a child willingly grabs hold of a parent's hand.
