I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; neither shall anyone snatch them out of My hand. John 10:28
On December 26, 2004, an earthquake shook the whole earth. Many people didnt feel it, but the South Asian region and parts of Africa suffered a devastating tsunami as a result. According to reporter Randolph Schmid, however, No point on Earth remained undisturbed. That earthquake, he tells us, shook the ground everywhere on Earths surface.
The 19th-century Danish philosopher Sren Kierkegaard says that his world was rocked when his religious father told him he had cursed God for the mistreatment he was getting from others. His fathers actions shook Sren so much that he called the event The Great Earthquake. He wondered for the rest of his life if his family was cursed by God for his fathers actions.
We too have had or possibly will have earthquakes in our lives. But its comforting to know that under the worst of circumstances, our faith in God canand willhold us fast. After all, Hes got the whole world in His hands, and that means Hes got you and me, brother and sister, in His hands.
No one, nor any disaster, can snatch us out of our heavenly Fathers hands (John 10:28-29). His grip will hold us into all eternity.
Neither life nor death can ever
From the Lord His children sever,
For His love and deep compassion
Comforts them in tribulation.
Our unknown future is secure in the hands of our all-knowing God.
