Put It In God’s Hands

“Don’t fret or worry. Instead of worrying, pray. Let petitions and praises shape your worries into prayers, letting God know your concerns. Before you know it, a sense of God’s wholeness, everything coming together for good, will come and settle you down. It’s wonderful what happens when Christ displaces worry at the centre of your life.”
Philippians 4:6-7 (MSG)

A friend sent me this thoughtful piece of prose, that I would like to share with you:

A basketball in my hands is worth about £15.
A basketball in Michael Jordan’s hands is worth millions!
It depends whose hands it’s in.

A tennis racket is useless in my hands.
A tennis racket in Andre Agassi’s hands is worth millions.
It depends whose hands it’s in.

A rod in my hands will keep away an angry dog.
A rod in Moses’ hands parted the mighty sea.
It depends whose hands it’s in.

A slingshot in my hands is a kid’s toy.
A slingshot in David’s hands was a mighty weapon.
It depends on whose hands it’s in.

Two fish and five loaves of bread in my hands is a couple of fish sandwiches.
Two fish and five loads of bread in Jesus’ hands fed thousands.
It depends whose hands it’s in.

Nails in my hands might produce a birdhouse.
Nails in Jesus Christ’s hands will produce salvation for the entire world.
It depends on whose hands it’s in.

So put your concerns, your worries, your fears, your hopes, your dreams, your families, your relationships, and your life in God’s hands because…..
It depends whose hands it’s in! 

Heavenly Father, thank you that we can put our all into your capable hands.
