Which Hand?

“Grandma,” said little Josie, “did you know that God created the world with His left hand?”
“My goodness, Honey, wherever did you get that idea? What do you mean He used His left hand?” asked Grandma.
“The way I figure it,” she explained, “is that God had to use His left hand because Jesus was sitting on His right hand.”
Josie heard the story in Sunday school and in her childlike faith accepted its truth. How precious is a faith that believes. And although we may not know all of the details, God reveals Himself and His plan for His creation and His children, us, in His Word. But there is another thought we must remember when we think about where Jesus is.  His final words to His disciples were, “Be sure of this: I am with you always, even to the end of the age.”
What does it mean when He said, “I am with you?” Simply this: Jesus was with His disciples physically as He went about His work while on earth. After His resurrection He ascended into heaven. Now, He is with us through the work of the Holy Spirit. He knew there would be difficult days and trying times for His disciples then and now. So He gave His Word, “I am with you until the end.”
For those who accept Him as Savior there is no need to fear facing life alone. “I,” said Jesus, “am with you!”
Prayer: How blest we are, Father, to know that You are with us every moment of our lives. Give us a peace that comes from Your presence as we faithfully serve You. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
Scripture for Today: Teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age. Matthew 28:20
