Daily Bread (Everlasting Arms)

Everlasting Arms

The eternal God is your refuge, and underneath are the everlasting arms. —Deuteronomy 33:27

After a pre-concert rehearsal in New York City's Carnegie Hall, Randall Atcheson sat on stage alone. He had successfully navigated the intricate piano compositions of Beethoven, Chopin, and Liszt for the evening program, and with only minutes remaining before the doors opened, he wanted to play one more piece for himself. What came from his heart and his hands was an old hymn by Elisha Hoffman:

What have I to dread,
what have I to fear,
Leaning on the everlasting arms?
I have blessed peace
with my Lord so near,
Leaning on the everlasting arms.

Those words echo the truth in the final blessing of Moses: "There is no one like the God of Jeshurun, who rides the heavens to help you, and in His excellency on the clouds. The eternal God is your refuge, and underneath are the everlasting arms" (Deuteronomy 33:26-27).

What a gift we have in our own arms and hands—they can swing a hammer, hold a child, or help a friend. But while our strength is limited, God's boundless power on our behalf is expressed in might and gentle care. "Behold, the Lord's hand is not shortened, that it cannot save" (Isaiah 59:1). "He will gather the lambs with His arm, and carry them in His bosom" (Isaiah 40:11).

Whatever challenge or opportunity we face, there is security and peace in His everlasting arms. —David McCasland

The heavenly Father's arms never tire of holding His children.

Amen sister thank you for sharing this devotional. GOD's arms are always open for His lost sheep to come and receive Salvation. His arms are always open for those believing children who need rest, peace, comfort, healing, etc. from GOD alone who only can provide such things through Christ Jesus.
Amen, good devotional shortlady. God is so amazing that He measured the universe with the span of his hand and He can still gently hold one of His little ones and His arms never grow tired, again I have to say, amazing!
Great post. As Matthew Henry says "There is no fear of sinking when underneath are the everlasting arms." What an amazing God - no matter what our problem is His arms are underneath us.
A precious reminder of a 'Good and Faithful Father' Underneath and roundabout us are the Everlasting Arms.....

What have I to dread,What have I to fear, Leaning on the Everlasting arms?
Nothing............I have blessed peace with my lord so dear, Leaning on the Everlasting Arms

O how sweet to walk in this pilgrim way, Leaning on the Everlasting Arms, O how bright the path grows from day to day, Leaning on the Everlasting Arms

Leaning, Leaning, Save and secure from all alarms.
leaning, Leaning, Leaning on the Everlasting arms.

Encouraged as I read the post
