Storm in a tea cup
“Who (God) hath measured the waters in the hollow of His hand” (Isa 40:12).
This verse gives great encouragement to those who are going through trials. As we know, in the Word of God, trials are compared to waters, storms, floods, etc. as in Isaiah 43:2: “When thou passest through the waters, I will be with thee; and through the rivers, they shall not overflow thee.” If all the waters in the universe can be held in the hollow of one hand of our almighty God, then our trials, which are like a drop of water in the ocean, can in no way affect or ruin our spiritual life. All our trials are just like a storm in a tea cup!
“When by the swelling Jordan,
Your feet in sinking sand,
Remember still He holds thee
In the hollow of His hand.”
Dear child of God, don’t ever forget you are upheld in a mighty hand. “I will uphold thee with the right hand of My righteousness” (Isa 41:10). Our loving Lord’s hands are so broad and powerful that no devil can pluck us out of them. Instead of looking at our smallness let us look at the greatness of our God; instead of looking at our weakness let us look at the strength of our God; instead of looking at our limitations let us look at the unlimited Grace that our God has for us.
As the songwriter says, We have a great, big wonderful God – Who makes our lives also wonderful.
Stay Blessed 😊
