Artist: Kirk Franklin
Track: My Life Is In Your Hands
Album: God’s Property From Kirk Franklin’s Nu Nation
“You don’t have to worry and don’t you be afraid; joy comes in the morning, troubles they don’t last always, for there’s a friend in Jesus who will wipe your tears away…”
You only have to turn to the Word to know that Jesus is your friend and to know that He is always there for you.
If you turn to Matthew 28:20 you’ll see that He is with us always, “to the very end of the age.” Look further on in the New Testament to Hebrews 13:5 and we are told that “I will never leave you nor forsake you.”
Turn back to the Old Testament and see what Joshua 1:9 says; “Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be frightened, and do not be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.”
Despite what we might be going through, God is with us.
Our lives are in His hands. He will hide us under His wings in times of trouble.
You could be struggling to make ends meet at this moment in time, you might find yourself in a difficult situation or you might even be assessing your year and asking yourself what it is you’ve achieved.
Don’t allow doubt and fear, the negatives to cloud your day. Simply acknowledge that every thing has its time and simply say “Lord, my life is in Your hands”.
Say Lord, “I know that I can make it, I know that I can stand” because, “no matter what may come my way, my life is in Your hands.”
This is a powerful message from Kirk Franklin and it is one that will hold a place in each of our hearts because, we all go through tests and trials on our journey through life.
With this song, Kirk Franklin is reminding us to remember Jesus; our friend. The bad times might get on top of us but ultimately, it is Jesus that is in control.
All we have to do is call on Him. All we have to do is believe that He is in control. All we have to do is say “Lord, my life is in Your hands”.
