Pam at Grey Like Snuffie is hosting the weekly meme "ABC of the Words". You know the routine...click on the icon above to read the other postings of verses containing "O" words and be blessed!!
As I flipped through the "O" words in the concordance of my Bible I was drawn to this word...this concept...."OUTSTRETCHED". With every verse listed, the word to follow was "ARMS".
Not just any arms...HIS arms. I am really needing those arms this week. How about you?
I did a word search with the word "OUTSTRETCHED"on Biblegateway.com and found many listings in the Old Testament with this concept of God's OUTSTRETCHED ARMS for His people in need of deliverance, comfort, protection...love. Do you fall into one of those categories? I do.
Out of the 18 verses with the words OUTSTRETCHED ARMS I choose this one for you and me today...
Ah, Lord GOD! Behold, You have made the heavens and the earth by Your great power and OUTSTRETCHED ARMS. There is nothing too hard for You. ~ Jeremiah 32:17
No matter what you are facing in your day...find rest in those OUTSTRETCHED ARMS! Run to them! Bury yourself in them! Just like the people at Jesus feet in this picture and know there is nothing to hard for Him to handle for you!!
