Never out of Abba's Hands

We are going to continue looking at Abba as our Protector. Let's listen in on what Jesus is quoted as saying in John 10, verse 29, talking about Abba's children. "My Father, who has given them to me, is greater than all; and no one is able to snatch them out of the Father's hand."

I remember when my children were young- starting around age three- I would place one on the hood of the car and eventually have them jump into my hands. They would soon graduate to being placed on the roof of the car, but that is not how it would start. The first time they 'jumped', I would never actually take my hands off of them. Being in my hands seemed to give them great faith that they were in fact safe even though they were on the hood of the car, and in that faith had the freedom to jump off the car.

I don't know about you, but I find similar freedom from fear when I remember that I am never out of Abba's hand. I am learning in every circumstance to find my safety and rest in the simple prayer, Abba I belong to You. I want to encourage us all to pray that prayer often when we feel like we are somewhere scary that we've never been before. The truth of the matter is we belong to Abba, we are in His hand and nothing can snatch us from His hand because He is holding us and He is greater than all.



Note: “but God” is a weekly ministry of Robinson Outdoors Products written for us by pastor and spiritual counselor, Thomas Paige. “But God” is posted each week on the ScentBlocker website and can be found there along with the archives of messages of past months from Thomas. “But God” is also posted each week on ScentBlocker Facebook page and on Twitter.

You may ask, “why would Robinson, an outdoor products company with brands ScentBlocker and Tree Spider, making  products for hunters, spend its time on something like “but God”?”

Great question, as we here at Robinson consider our work place our mission field, our products bearing the John 3:16inscription our outreach. For 2014, there will be a laminated waterproof jacket pocket insert that contains the salvation message printed in two languages. And, we ask the Lord to provide more opportunities for us to be a light unto a dark world.

What responses do we receive from our customers? Each week thousands and thousands of people read the “but God” message online. We receive dozens and dozens of appreciative emails, rejoicing that a company has the courage to stand up for what it believes despite perhaps it not being the most popular thing to do these days. God has blessed our lives and our  business!

I hope you will enjoy this weeks’ “…but God” as Thomas continues the series, unto the Lord!
