Our Scripture reading today is 1 Chronicles 29:10-12.
Verse 12, "Both riches and honour come of thee, and thou reignest over all; and in thine hand is power and might; and in thine hand it is to make great, and to give strength unto all."
Maybe in the past you have heard a preacher or someone else refer to needing God's hand on them. You might have wondered what exactly that meant. Here in our Scripture reading today, we find a really good explanation. There isn't a day that we are allowed to live that we do not need God's hand on us. He is our strength for every day. He is our great provider. I can still see my grandmothers in the kitchen preparing a meal or even a blackberry pie. They are using their hands to complete the task. What would our lives be like without the use of our hands? It will not take you long to figure out how difficult it would be.
Why do so many Christians think they have to be strong when we read here that the strength needed is already available in His hands? God's Word tells us it is better to be weak. 2 Corinthians 12:10, "Therefore I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in necessities, in persecutions, in distresses for Christ's sake: for when I am weak, then am I strong." The supply that you need for today is not in your hands. You are in the hands of the One Who has all power. Depend on Him!
