The act of holding someone’s hand represents our support for one another. In the Bible, God ‘held’ the hands of Moses, Daniel, and Noah in times of trial. In my life, I am grateful to God, my family and friends for holding my hand to get through difficult trials. Together, we are stronger.
God does not lead you into wilderness to harm you. He leads you there to completely depend on Him. The dry places will bring you into a deeper intimacy with Him and you will no longer view Him as being far away. You will come to know Him in closeness and confidence. God always keeps His promises. He has the power to make them, and He has the power to fulfil them.
God was angry when people did bad things and He wanted to punish them. However, Uncle Noah was a good man who listened to God, and God protected Uncle Noah by asking him to build a big boat to keep him, his family and some animals safe. God set a rainbow in the sky after the flood, promising Uncle Noah that He would never flood the earth again.
