Isaiah 26.3a



In the Hollow of Your Hand

Written by:  Sandy Blaser, Healing Rain to the Nations

On the horizon dark clouds are gathering.  As the thick fog comes rolling in, my vision becomes clouded as fear grips my soul with its cold fingers.  As the Tempest begins to rage, in the distance I hear approaching, a continuous nagging of never-ending lies, “there is no hope, no used to try, you are a failure”.  As my vision is clouded by a mist of deep despair, fear begins to shroud my mind.  I find myself sliding into a weak and helpless state, so all alone.  Yet somehow deep within the recess of my mind, I began to hear a whisper–a promise that I have hid in my heart, “I will be with you; I will never leave you nor forsake you.”(Joshua 1:5) But even as I cling to that promise, yet the storm rages on all around me. I see no end in sight.

Suddenly, somewhere deep within my soul arises a glimmer of hope.  Ever so slowly I began speaking the promises of God into my situation.  As I dwell on the words of my promises I to begin speaking with authority and a Holy boldness. Thus, I begin to feel a calm assurance quieting my spirit.  Slowly I find myself beginning to arise from the pit of despair.  The thunder rolls and the lightening crashes, yet I desperately cling to a loving hand reaching down to me.  And suddenly out of the darkness I hear an all familiar voice speaking softly and quietly, “Peace be still”. (Mark 4:39), “(I) will keep in perfect peace those whose minds are steadfast, because they trust in (Me).” (Isaiah 26:3)

Then like a swift ocean wave, peace submerges my soul with a calm assurance that My Lord is in the midst and He’s in control of my situation.  And there at the midnight-hour, my soul finds rest in the hollow of God’s hand.  Yes, I now have hope and a sweet assurance…This too shall pass and tomorrow will be a brighter day.  Listen to this beautiful song …..

 Til the storm passes over and the thunder sounds no more

Til the clouds roll forever from the sky

Hold me fast let me stand in the Hollow of Your Hand

Keep me safe til the storm passes by
