I believe the Lord is speaking to those who have felt “close to the edge” in some way.
You have been stretched, and may be wondering if you are reaching the limits of your capacity.

Your Father wants you to know that you are safe in His hands.

“Jesus stretched out His hand and caught him…” (Matt 14:31)


The Jar on the Table

“But we have this treasure in jars of clay to show that this all-surpassing power is from God and not from us.” (2 Cor 4:7, NIV)

This week while praying, a picture of a large jar came to mind.
It was sitting near the end of a table—at the side, on the very edge.
And I saw the hand of the Lord come in and move that jar back, to the very middle of the table.

If you can relate to this simple image of being “close to the edge”, the Lord wants you to know that He has got you!

You are safe in His hands.
God is restoring your stability. And as you yield to Him, your heart will be centered in Him again.

  • You will be able to continue serving where you are called to.

The Day Jesus Rescued Peter

Iighthouse in storm, text "you are safe in God's hands"It reminds me of a time Peter found himself in a precarious situation.

He stepped out of his boat on a word from Jesus!
But then—even though he was in the middle of obeying the Lord—his attention strayed to the storm around him.

He was surrounded by instability.
There was wind, there were waves, and there was nothing for Peter to stand on.

He began to sink.

“And immediately Jesus stretched out His hand and caught him, and said to him, “O you of little faith, why did you doubt?” And when they got into the boat, the wind ceased.” (Matthew 14:31-32, NKJV)


Stability Returned!

Just as Peter began to fall, Jesus reached out His hand towards him.

So today, if you feel vulnerable…If your world has been rocked, or there is instability all around, see Jesus’ hand reaching out to you.

In His hand is God’s help; His strength.
That hand is His presence with you.
In Jesus’ hand is safety and security.

At the moment Peter took Jesus’ hand, stability returned!
He was restored to a position of faith, and able to return to the boat with Jesus.


You will be Positioned Securely

When Jesus and Peter climbed into the boat, the storm stopped miraculously.

Amazed, Peter and his friends worshipped Jesus. [1]

Today, even though there may be instability all around you, see the Lord holding out His hand to you.

“He also brought me up out of a horrible pit, Out of the miry clay, And set my feet upon a rock, And established my steps. He has put a new song in my mouth— Praise to our God; Many will see it and fear, And will trust in the LORD.” (Psalms 40:2-3, NKJV)

You may have felt in danger at times—or even, that you are near a breaking point. But as you take Jesus’ hand now by faith, know this:
He is lifting you, and you are being positioned securely.

Worship—and with it, the joy you may have thought lost—is rising from within you.

And many around you are being touched by the supernatural move of God on your life.

  1. Yes defnitly i asked many friend family and other believers to start praying for us this week as we need God’s help for our future and we need wisdom on what to do in this very difficult situation. The decision a hard and unsure that we must make so this word truly gives me hope and comfort. Thank you my sister for your love and obedience.

      1. This word is timely, tho the the season that I have experienced has taught me to pray and worship more and harder. I’m encountering the joy of the Lord that has been replaced from mourning. Thank you for always encouraging with wisdom and transparency and revelations. Blessings to you

    1. I felt moved to share this song with you I hope it’s a blessing. The Maranatha Singers have always ministered a special peace to my heart

        1. Yes the WordPress (blog) software hasn’t caught up with most of the emojis yet. It does recognise a smile though 🙂

  2. Thank you, Helen. You so often release exactly what I need at the moment that I always look forward to reading what you have to say. I’m very much ‘close to the edge,’ fearing failure of an assignment that I need to birth now. I’m in the last stages, but it’s contingent on so many things… I read Psalms 40:2-3 earlier today and was deeply touched by it when I saw it again in your post. Thank you.

    1. Thank you so much for this word. I’ve followed you a few years now and God always speaks to me through your posts. But, this one today is exactly where I’m at right now. I have some health & emotional transitions I’m going through and have almost felt defeated. I definitely have felt “close to the edge” then experiencing the safety of God moving me back. This word is perfect timing and reassuring!

  3. I am currently experiencing a low point in my life, where I even feel as if I am outside the will of God. I am finding it difficult to worship and even pray at times. This is weird because I am leading a Prayerline, and even when I am praying, I am stumbling over words. At times I cannot even open my mouth in my personal prayer time, and sometimes it feels like I am struggling to remember words to pray. I am at one of my low points, only to look up, because there is no where else to go

    1. I’m praying for you Esther – may the low place become the place you encounter His love, like never before, and strength to soar (Isaiah 40)

  4. Praise king Jesus,
    I have been in the height of battle at work and home with my sister and at some point I felt very weak and low, it has also been a season of prayer, fasting and prayers with others as the opportunity arises.the scripture God used you to share Psalms 40:1-3 and now Mathew 14:22-33 have been ministering deeply in my spirit along with tears.im believing God to get me out of this horrible pit and miry clay and lift me up, put my feet upon the rock, establish my goings and put a new song in my mouth so that all can see the goodness of God and fear and reverence Jesus.
    God bless you, keep you, make his face shine upon you and he’s countenance be upon you Woman of God.

  5. Greetings Helen.THANK YOU FOR ANOTHER ENCOURAGING POST.I NEEDED TO HEAR THESE.SUDDENLY I AM EXCITED ABOUT MY FUTURE,I AM READY TO FORGIVE AND FORGET AND DO THE WILL OF GOD FOR MY LIFE.THANK YOU SO MUCH.

    1. I’m praying for you now Mary.
      This has been meaningful to me in these moments and you just reminded me of it <3

      ““You’re blessed when you’re at the end of your rope. With less of you there is more of God and his rule. “You’re blessed when you feel you’ve lost what is most dear to you. Only then can you be embraced by the One most dear to you. “You’re blessed when you’re content with just who you are—no more, no less. That’s the moment you find yourselves proud owners of everything that can’t be bought." (Matthew 5:3-5, MSG)
