Who Hands Are You In?

Rev. Tetteh-Annor Larbi | June 2, 2024 | John 10:28-30


My Father, who has given them to Me, is greater than all; and no one is able to snatch them out of My Father’s hand. John 10:29 (NKJV)



Jesus provides a profound assurance of the eternal security we have in Him, saying, "I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; no one will snatch them out of my hand. My Father, who has given them to me, is greater than all; no one can snatch them out of my Father’s hand. I and the Father are one." This powerful statement emphasises the dual security offered by both Jesus and the Father. As believers, understanding whose hands we are in brings us immense peace and confidence, knowing that our eternal destiny is secure and protected by divine power.


The imagery of being held in Jesus’ hand and the Father’s hand underscores the strength and permanence of our salvation. Just as a shepherd protects his sheep from harm, Jesus, our Good Shepherd, ensures that no external force can snatch us away from His care. This assurance is further reinforced by the unity between Jesus and the Father, highlighting that our security is grounded in the omnipotent power and love of God Himself. In a world filled with uncertainties and threats, this promise offers us a steadfast anchor, reminding us that we are securely held by the One who created and sustains the universe. By embracing our identity as sheep held securely by the Good Shepherd and the Father, we can navigate life's uncertainties with confidence and peace, knowing that our ultimate security lies in the hands of our loving and all-powerful God.


Deepen your trust in God's unwavering protection and care. When you face trials, doubts, or fears, you can find solace in knowing that you are in the safest place possible—God’s hands. By this truth be comforted and also empowered to live boldly for Christ, free from the fear of losing our salvation or being overwhelmed by life's challenges.


My Lord and my God, I trust in your safe arms. I am secured in the warmth of your embrace. Thank you for teaching me to rely only on you for my security. Amen.





DAILY word study: HAND The Greek word for "hand" in our Key Verse is "χείρ" (cheir), which refers to the physical hand but also symbolizes power, control, and possession. In the context of John 10:29, the "hand" represents the strength and security provided by the Father, which assures believers that they are securely held by God's omnipotent power.

In John 10:29, Jesus assures His followers that they are secure in the Father's hand. This imagery of the "hand" conveys not just physical holding but a deeper sense of divine protection and authority. The passage emphasizes the omnipotence of God the Father, who is greater than all, ensuring that no one can overpower Him to take away His sheep. This assurance of divine security highlights the eternal protection afforded to believers by the Father's sovereign power.


Do you find comfort in knowing that you are held in the Father's hand? Reflect on the significance of God's omnipotent power and the security it provides. How does this assurance influence your daily life and relationship with God? Consider the ways you can deepen your trust in the Father’s unwavering protection and care, knowing that His hand is upon you.
