The palms of God are the safest place to be? What does God mean when he says He has inscribed you on the palms of His hands?
Behold, I have graven thee upon the palms of my hands; thy walls are continually before me. (Isaiah 49:16, KJV)
For example, imagine you are in the desert, and you only have a few drops of water on the palms of your hands. That water in everything you have, so it is very important to you. Your feelings about that few drops are just like God’s feelings towards you. He gave you His promise, you will always be on the palms, and He will always keep an eye on you. How great is that? All mighty, all-powerful God is watching over you! Also, He says I have graven or engrave you, and that means permanently! He treasures us but not for who we are yet for who He is. Unlike the treasures of this world who can be lost most of the time, the treasures of Heaven are forever.
God is using palms analogy to help us understand how important we are to Him. When we treasure something, we like to keep in our hands. That way it will be safe; we can look at it, hold it. It is the same as our God. The King of kings Lord of Lord, is looking at you, keeping you safe, as His treasure. Enjoy that wonderful truth! Appreciate everything He is doing for you, and spend extra time today with Him. Take the time to pray and thank the Lord for all your beloved ones because he has them on His hands too. Spread the wonderful God’s promise and make someone happy. Bless God!
