Davidisms: Put Your Hand in the Hand of the Man Who Stilled the Water

“Put your hand in the hand of the man who stilled the water. Put your hand in the hand of the man who calmed the seas.” These lyrics from a 1970’s pop song are wonderfully accurate for all times.

Is your hand currently in the hand of “the man”? It’s quite an image to picture, isn’t it? Holding tightly to Jesus’s hand - especially when our life’s seas are rough and filled with fear.

When we reach to Jesus, he will uphold us with his righteous right hand (Isaiah 41:10). Teach us his ways. And when we stumble, we will not fall. (Psalm 37:24).

We may try to let go of his hand, but he will never let go of ours (Hebrews 13:5). What a great and mighty promise!

Put your hand in the hand of the man who stilled the water…and calmed the seas. Firmly in the grip of the Lord.

You’ll never walk alone nor be fearful again.
