Holding My Right Hand

"I was brutish and ignorant; I was like a beast toward you. Nevertheless, I am continually with you; you hold my right hand. You guide me with your counsel, and afterward you will receive me to glory" (Psalm 73:22-24, ESV).

It's a very long time favorite passage that I memorized after reading it again and again.

Even when I was still a member of a religious group that had many beliefs contrary with the historical doctrine of the Church, those words brought great encouragement that I would enjoy God's glory -- not because of the good things that I feel or would be doing, nor of the favorable things that would happen in my life, but because of His mighty Hands -- holding my right hand.

He would guide me and surely He did -- plucking me out not just from my sinful life, but also from erroneous beliefs -- and now, really, enjoying that assurance I am always with Him, because of Him. At the same time, am so excited -- eagerly waiting to be received in His glory!

"Yet I will
rejoice in the LORD,
I will take joy
in the God of my salvation"
(Habakkuk 3:18, ESV).
