David Heebner | His firm grip

Clear My Vision
-- A Daily Devotional by David Heebner--


February 19: His firm grip

Isaiah 41:13
(from The Message Bible)

“Because I, your God, have a firm grip on you and I'm not letting go. I'm telling you, 'Don't panic. I'm right here to help you.'”

One of the most amazing ways I experience God's presence are the moments when He calms my fear or anxiety. I feel like He is actually touching my heart with a firm grip that holds me up. He touches my emotions without even being physically in my presence.

Prayer: Lord, as I search your scriptures, I am learning that focus comes through experiencing you with all of my senses. Seeing you in your creation, hearing your voice, and now being touched by you, I not only know of your love, but I also feel your embrace.

Transformation of a Tribe

This morning Eric Teitelman of House of David forwarded a video to me that deeply touched my heart. It is a true story of a missionary, Mark Zook, who reached out to the Mouk tribe in the jungles of Papua New Guinea. This is a tribe that had no previous knowledge of Jesus Christ or any teachings of the Bible. Watch how the missionary introduces to them Scriptural truths step-by-step over a period of time even before he mentions the name of Jesus Christ. Make sure you watch it to the end to see their response.





What did you glean from this story that you can apply to your own life?
