God’s hands

Learning to ride a bike was probably the hardest most fearful thing to do. I remember climbing the little pup fence in front of the house just to get on my bicycle. The handlebars rocked side to side terribly as I tried desperately to keep my balance. The bike would end up tipping over before I even began to pedal leaving me with a couple of scratches and damaging my pride. Going in the house for dinner I told my parents through a couple of tears that I was afraid of falling and that, “I’ll never learn to ride this bike,” or so I thought. The next day after work my dad came outside and held the back of my seat then showed me how to mount the bike without the use of the pup fence. When he held the back of the bike the way he did, my hands didn’t shake the handlebars near as much, it was steady and suddenly I felt a sense of security. With this new strength, I was feeling there was an instant change in my mind, “I CAN DO THIS”!!!! With the strength of my father behind me, I felt secure and confident, like the fear had just melted away. The same is with our Heavenly Father if we trust in Him and believe that He will back us, then and only then will we succeed. Do you want to feel His strength today, is your wish to be stronger in the Lord, then let’s bow our head in prayer? Dear heavenly father thank you so much for always protecting us and loving us Lord, today we want to trust in you and ask you to give us your strength Lord to get us through any problems or troubles that we have today. Be our rock and our foundation, helping us to prevail and triumph over fear, in Jesus name, AMEN
