Are You Feeling Squeezed? Why That’s Exactly Where You Want to Be

Are you feeling squeezed?  Usually this is not a positive thing.  Usually when you feel squeeze, you’re feeling overwhelmed.  But stay with me.  I’d  like to offer to you that being squeezed is exactly where you want to be.

Isaiah 49:16:  “See I have engraved you on the palms of my hands”

Being squeezed is a good thing when you're in His hands. Looking at Isaiah 49:16 Share on X

Make a fist. Squeeze it really tightly! Ok, now open it up. Do you see your fingernail prints in your hand? That’s what this verse means. God is holding you so tightly that you are imprinted in His palm.

After I heard Beth Moore teach this verse, it’s become one of my favorites.  He holds  me.  He holds you. Tightly.

You need to know you are being held safely in His hands. You got this, because He's got you. Share on X

He holds you in His hand.  And not loosely, but He has a firm grip on you.  You are safe in His palm.  He’s holding you so tightly, you are imprinted right there.

He loves us so much. He loves YOU so much. He’s got you. And come to think about it, as I go back to the beginning of this post, this has EVERYTHING to do with fitness.  We have to own the fact that we are loved just as we are.  Until we do that, the changes on the outside are just cosmetic and they won’t stick.  We will age.  Our bodies change whether we want them to or not.  

But He never changes.  His love for us never changes.  His hold on us never changes.
