The World in His Hands – He Holds My Hand 

 Renaldo Barnard

God still holds this world in His Hands. Not only is He holding this world in His hands, but He is also holding us in His hands. He holds my hand in His strong and mighty hand.

 “Earthly wisdom is doing what comes naturally. Godly wisdom is doing what the Holy Spirit compels us to do.” – Charles Stanley

“When you realize God’s purpose for your life isn’t just about you. He will use you in a mighty way.” – Dr Tony Evans

Discuss: God never leaves us alone. He holds our hand in His hand. But how does God lead us? He leads us through His Holy Spirit.

Discuss the following questions:

  • Why do you think it is so important for a couple that is in love, to hold hands?
  • God takes us by the hand and He leads us through His Holy Spirit. How can I experience the leading of the Holy Spirit in my life?
