“…thy right hand hath holden me up, and thy gentleness hath made me great.” (Psalms 18: 35)
God’s righteousness is our salvation. It is the hand of God, the strength and certainty and authority of Truth, which lifts us out of despair and darkness and into triumph and joy.
It is not human energy and willpower that holds us up. It is not the skin of our teeth, luck, or physical endurance that gets us through. Our life is in God’s hands, and the infinite Almighty can surely keep us upright and free us from the heaviness of material and limiting beliefs about our lives.
And this mighty hand of God is also pure Love. It is His gentle kindness, mercy, and loving touch that gives us true greatness. It is by our humble yielding of ego and human will to the Love of God and the healing presence of the Christ-Truth, that we feel true power, vitality, and dominion.
Our life is always safe in God. Our greatness is a guarantee, for we are the loved image and object of His gentle, righteous, powerful protection and affection.
