Read : Isaiah 42:1-17
Thoughts from: Ken Creviston
Why would anyone pick this for a devotional?
Here is why God picked it for me!
Behold! Look At This– Pay Atttention!!!! I’m sending you someone! My servant, My chosen one — JESUS (whom I uphold and My soul delights in, who I put My spirit in!)
I remember how it felt (the first time) when I understood that God the Father has these same thoughts and desires for me. A change took place and I have never been the same. Do you remember that moment? Have you had that moment?
So here is why He chose this scripture for me–
Isaiah 42: 6 “I am the Lord, I have called you in righteousness, I will also hold you by the hand and watch over You and I will appoint You as a covenant to the people,as a light to the nations.”
God the Father holding Jesus by the hand–
My personal life verse is- Psalm 37:23-24 “The steps of a man are established by the Lord, and He delights in his way. When he falls, he will not be hurled headlong, because the Lord is the One who holds his hand.”
Jesus holding me by the hand– The Psalm 37 verses were given to me by a follower of Christ a few days after being fired from my dream job. That follower reached out a hand!!!
How is He holding your hand? And who are you reaching your hand for?
