Whether young or old, there is something very comforting about holding someone’s hand. It brings about a sense of being cared about and creates a communication of two hearts.
I like to envision the Heavenly Father reaching his hands down to us. As children we readily grab His hand and mutual delight results. As teens, young adults, and possibly even as mature adults, we may grab someone else’s hand and let go of His.
In the bonds of marriage, strength results when the Lord is asked to enter in, or in my vision, when both spouses are holding His hand. Their remaining hands are joined to each other, so the three create a union of three, a supernatural bond.
A three-ply cord is not easily broken. Ecclesiastes 4:12
In marriage, the bond becomes weakened when someone let’s go of the Father’s hand or let’s go of their spouses hand.
But hope remains…..
For the unbelieving husband is made holy through his wife, and the unbelieving wife is made holy through the brother. 1 Cor 7:14
Everything is possible to one who has faith." Mark 9:23
Pray for marriages, that they begin with the Lord as an invited guest. And if that wasn’t the case, may He be invited in along the journey. Pray that when difficulty arises, rather than let go of the spouse’s hand, that they instead have the fortitude to cling more tightly to God in faith. And for those who have nothing left to cling to and the Lord is holding them, may they be comforted, healed, and filled with His love and peace.
Peace, Joy, and Love,
Invite someone to hold the Father’s hand. Pass it on.
