He Does the Holding, We do the Trusting.

“Give your entire attention to what God is doing *right now,* and don’t get worked up about what may or may not happen tomorrow. God will help you deal with whatever hard things come up when the time comes.” – Matthew 6:34 (The Message):


Where in the Bible does it say that men do the dishes?
2 Kings 21:13 “…and I will wipe Jerusalem as a man wipeth a dish, wiping it, and turning it upside down to dry.”

There’s also a whole book verifying  who should make the coffee–“Hebrews” 🙂





Isaiah 41:13(NIV)

13 For I am the Lord your God
    who takes hold of your right hand
and says to you, Do not fear;
    I will help you.

Isaiah 41:13 (MSG)

That’s right. Because I, your God,
    have a firm grip on you and I’m not letting go.
I’m telling you, ‘Don’t panic.
    I’m right here to help you.’

Isaiah 41:13 (NLT)

13 For I hold you by your right hand—
    I, the Lord your God.
And I say to you,
    ‘Don’t be afraid. I am here to help you.




Don’t try to hold God’s hand; let Him hold yours. Let Him do the holding, and you do the trusting.
H. W. Webb-Peploe



The way it’s supposed to work is that He does the holding  and we do the trusting. He’s got a firm grip on us and He won’t let go.  No need to ever to be a scaredy- cat about anything. He’s told us in His Word not to fear or panic.  He guarantees us that He’s right here with us and will  help us through everything.
