“Hold me, and I will be safe, and I will always pay attention to your commands.” (Psalms 119: 117, Good News Translation)
This prayer gets at the heart of devotion. When we are able to really feel God’s care, His affection and protection, we gratefully pay attention to His direction for us.
Our God is Love. He is holding on to us, embracing us. This infinite divine goodness is present and powerful, and we can yield to its healing grace willingly. In fact, as we are alert to God, we discover His loving arms around us. When we stop denying His presence, we find that He is with us and that His kindness, attention to us, is unflinching, strong, at hand.
We all want to feel safe and loved. God is able to bring these qualities to us like no person or material thing can do—timely, abundantly, wisely. The Eternal One encircles, undergirds, upholds, uplifts, and leads us. We are held securely in His Love, and we can trust His guidance and follow it, naturally and gratefully.
