I love this verse! God included it in His Word especially for me and for YOU!
Sheep need to be lead and constantly watched over; they depend on a shepherd to meet all their needs.
But I REALLY love theses verses because we see Christ’s love and assurance — that He gives us ETERNAL life (only through Jesus) — and not any man — NO ONE — can take us out of our Father’s hand.
We’re safe and sound! How could we ever rest peacefully otherwise?
I could NOT rest without His wonderful assurance that He has the POWER to keep me safe…to keep me secure from Satan. He wanted us to be secure in our salvation.
It is vain for you to rise up early, to sit up late, to eat the bread of sorrows: for so he giveth his beloved sleep. Psalms 127:2
A loving, earthly father doesn’t kick his child out from his home because he fails or makes a mistake. He has mercy and encourages his child to turn from his wrong doing and do right. We do not lose our salvation as a “child of God.”
God has the mighty power to keep us in His hands! Praise God!

We are so prone to worry and anxiety when the Lord’s already promised to take care of us. Amen!
Daisy, what a great point you make! So many Christians are fretting…and the shame is that He’s already given us His Word for assurance. I think many Christians just don’t read their Bible enough, though. With all the modern technology they get too busy and caught up in that…they’re missing out! 🙂
