Conntecting the Dots

A Life-Changing Lesson Learned Through a Child

Little people teach me much about spiritual truths. Here’s one example: On a recent outing, my two-year-old grandson Micah grew frightened by a wasp that hovered too close. He ran to me and climbed into my lap. I wrapped my arms around him, and he clung to me. There he felt safe because he knew I would protect him from being stung.


What a simple yet beautiful illustration of a biblical truth found in Psalm 63:8—“I cling to you; your strong right hand holds me securely.”

Psalm 63-8

When discouragement, fear, or temptation threaten us, we can turn to God for help. He’s ever-present, willing, and more-than-able to protect us from being stung. Rather than trying to fight the battle on our own, we can choose to cling to Him, and He will hold us securely in His hand.


Memorize this verse so you can recall it whenever you sense the enemy hovering near, and then do what it says: cling to God. He will be faithful to keep His part of the deal and hold you securely.
