The Believer Is Safe in God’s Hand

A German botanist, who was traveling in Turkey, saw a rare flower hanging from an inaccessible precipice. He offered ten piastres, then twenty, then half-a-sovereign, and, finally, one pound, to a tempted but hesitating boy, if he would be slung over with a rope and cut the plant. The boy, struck with a new thought, said, “Wait a moment, and I will go for my father to come and hold the rope; then I will willingly go down and get it.”

God keeps the believer eternally secure. My Father, which gave them me, is greater than all; and no man is able to pluck them out of my Father's hand. —John 10:29
