I am reading a really lovely book at the moment: 7 Biblical Truths You Won’t Hear in Church: But Might Change Your Life
Out of the many things the author speaks about, the one that is most touching me right now in my life is this: he speaks about the Father’s grip and the son’s grip.
He talks about the times his son holds his hand. Sometimes his son holds tight and sometimes the son tries to run off and he can see that if he lets go, the run might go into the road after a bouncing ball. The son has no concept of danger at his age. No matter how much the son wriggles to be free, the father will never let him go. Sometimes he only has a grip on his son’s pinkie finger but he knows that for the survival of the child he must not let go, no matter what.
God is our Father and He holds onto us with absolute assurance like that. We may run, struggle, pull, tug and everything – but He holds onto us and will not let us go.
“I will never fail you. I will never forsake you.” Hebrews 13:5-6
