He Holds You By Your Right Hand

He Holds You By Your Right Hand

Nevertheless I am continually with You; You hold me by my right hand. — Psalm 73:23

When we go through trials, we may feel alone. Friends may disappear, family may not understand. And God? Well, we may think He’s nowhere to be had.

But Psalm 73:23 says otherwise: “Nevertheless I am continually with You; You hold me by my right hand.” We are continually with God, even when we feel alone, even when we feel abandoned, even when we feel left behind.

We are continually with God, even when we feel alone, even when we feel abandoned, even when we feel left behind. Click To Tweet

Sometimes feelings are deceptive, especially when we’re sick or tired. One evening during treatment, I cried out in frustration to my husband. “I’ve done cancer on my own. I’ve had no help or support from anyone.”

Not true.

Not only was my husband by my side, but so were my friends and church family.

And God?

He was holding me by my right hand.

Lord, if this reader feels alone, I pray she will sense Your presence, love, and care. Even if her friends and family fail her, You will never leave her nor forsake her, for You are continually with her. Thank You. In Jesus’ name, amen.
