The mighty hand and outstretched arms of God. Meditation John 10:20-30

Today's meditation John chapter 10:20-30

 1. Some people said that he had a devil and is mad and not to hear him.  (V20)
2. Some said this cannot be the words of the devil as the devil cannot open the eyes of the blind. (V21)
3. The feast of dedication was at hand and Jesus was walking in the Solomon's porch (v22)
4. Then the Jews asked him if he is Christ to tell them plainly and not to make them doubt. (V23)
5. Jesus said to them that even if he tells them they do not believe but the works that he does in his father's name bear witness of him. (V24)
6. Jesus said they do not believe because they are not his sheep. (V25)
7. Jesus said he knows his sheep and his sheep hear his voice and follow him. (V26)
8. He gives them eternal life. They shall not perish and no man can pluck them from the father's hands. (V27)
9. Jesus said that his father is greater than all and no man will be able to pluck them from the hands of the father. (V28)
10. Jesus then said he and his father are one. (V29)

 Life application :

My Father, which gave them me, is greater than all; and no man is able to pluck them out of my Father's hand.

The father's mighty hand:

Let us meditate today about the mighty hand of the father that we can rest assured that we are safe in his arms.

1. The hands of the mighty God makes our arms strong.

But his bow abode in strength, and the arms of his hands were made strong by the hands of the mighty God of Jacob; (from thence is the shepherd, the stone of Israel:)

2. The strong hands of God brought the Israelites from the land of the pharoah.

Then the LORD said unto Moses, Now shalt thou see what I will do to Pharaoh: for with a strong hand shall he let them go, and with a strong hand shall he drive them out of his land.

3. God redeems his people with a strong hand.

Now these are thy servants and thy people, whom thou hast redeemed by thy great power, and by thy strong hand.

4. God will come with a strong hand and with his arm he will rule us.

Behold, the Lord GOD will come with strong hand, and his arm shall rule for him: behold, his reward is with him, and his work before him.

5. God's arms are mighty and his hands are strong.

Thou hast a mighty arm: strong is thy hand, and high is thy right hand.

6. God's mighty arm stills the enemies.

Fear and dread shall fall upon them; by the greatness of thine arm they shall be as still as a stone; till thy people pass over, O LORD, till the people pass over, which thou hast purchased.

7. With his arms he fights our battle.

With him is an arm of flesh; but with us is the LORD our God to help us, and to fight our battles. And the people rested themselves upon the words of Hezekiah king of Judah.
2 Chronicles:32:8

8. God establishes us by his mighty hand.

With whom my hand shall be established: mine arm also shall strengthen him.

9. God scatters his enemies with his mighty arm.

Thou hast broken Rahab in pieces, as one that is slain; thou hast scattered thine enemies with thy strong arm.

10. God gives us victory by his mighty arm.

O sing unto the LORD a new song; for he hath done marvellous things: his right hand, and his holy arm, hath gotten him the victory.

11. God has set us as a seal upon his mighty arm.

Set me as a seal upon thine heart, as a seal upon thine arm: for love is strong as death; jealousy is cruel as the grave: the coals thereof are coals of fire, which hath a most vehement flame.
Song of Solomon:8:6

12. He gathers us his flock and carry is in his bosom by his arm.

He shall feed his flock like a shepherd: he shall gather the lambs with his arm, and carry them in his bosom, and shall gently lead those that are with young.

13. The arm of the Lord is revealed to us through Christ.

Who hath believed our report? and to whom is the arm of the LORD revealed?

For he shall grow up before him as a tender plant, and as a root out of a dry ground: he hath no form nor comeliness; and when we shall see him, there is no beauty that we should desire him.

14. The arm of the Lord brings salvation.

And he saw that there was no man, and wondered that there was no intercessor: therefore his arm brought salvation unto him; and his righteousness, it sustained him.

This is how mighty the arm of God is... now let us rest secured that nothing and no one can pluck us from this mighty hand of his.

God will fight our battles. He will win victories for us. The wolf and the RAVENOUS beasts can never snatch us from the very bosom of his.
When we cry out to him he will send his arrows and scatter them.

Yea, he sent out his arrows, and scattered them; and he shot out lightnings, and discomfited them.

Such a great and mighty God we have. So let us rest assured that nothing can separate us from his love because we are more than conquerors through Christ who strengthens us.

Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword?

Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us.
