In His Hands

by ggerhauser

Morning Thought: “Into your hands I commit my spirit” (Ps 31:5). These are Jesus’ dying words, but also David’s prayer as he faced one of his fiercest trials. It’s a prayer we can each pray everyday. To commit your spirit into the Father’s hands is to give God what is most precious to you, your spirit, created to commune with God. There are no safer hands than the Father’s. In his hands you are protected, he will not drop you. In his hands you are moulded, he will shape you into the most beautiful of vessels. In his hands you are engraved, you are his most precious treasure.
