God’s Good Hand

Ezra 8:22 AMP
22 For I was ashamed to request of the king a band of soldiers and horsemen to protect us against the enemy along the way, because we had told the king: the hand of our God is upon all them for good who seek Him, but His power and His wrath are against all those who forsake Him.

2 Chronicles 15:2 AMP

Quotes:
… and now all this being said to the king, after this, to desire a guard to protect them, it would look as if they had not that favour in the sight of God, and did not believe what they had said, but distrusted his power and providence towards them; therefore, rather than reflect any dishonour on God, they chose to expose themselves to danger, seeking his face and favour, and relying on his goodness and power. -Gill

It is a most blessed thing to have no props and no buttresses, but to stand upright on the Rock of Ages, upheld by the Lord alone. -Spurgeon

Those who seek God, are safe under the shadow of his wings, even in their greatest dangers; but those who forsake him, are always exposed. -Matthew Henry

.
.

Remember
– God’s hand IS there upholding you –
Even if you can’t see it right now.

Seek Him as your soul’s first necessity!

Today Lord, help me to seek You as my soul’s first necessity. Thank You that those who earnestly seek and rely on You are under the protection of Your mighty right hand.
