KEY VERSE: “It is in the power of my hand to do you hurt: but the God of your father spake unto me yesternight, saying, Take thou heed that thou speak not to Jacob either good or bad” (Genesis 31:29).
Though invisible because He is Spirit, God remains the supreme ruler of this universe which He alone created. In their ignorance, due to depravity, men and women continue to pride themselves in their carnal accomplishments, their might and their power. Yet, “the Most High ruleth in the kingdom of men, and giveth it to whomsoever he will (Daniel 4:17).
Laban planned to harm Jacob for offending him but God restrained him. He told him in a dream not hurt him. That is a divine intervention. “God moves in a mysterious way, His wonders to perform,” wrote the song writer. It was God’s unseen hand that guided Joseph to Egypt to preserve the lives of his family during famine; and the same hand put Esther on the throne as Queen in Shushan. God’s unseen hand directs all activities in this world, secular or spiritual, by sinners or saints. We may, therefore, entrust our future into his hands and let Him rule over our lives and guide us into eternal bliss.
Challenge: Let God’s unseen hand guide you in all things.
Prayer: Be thou my unseen defender, O LORD, in Jesus’name.
