Into Your Hands
by Kathleen Whitten
Jesus knows this feeling. Jesus understands having the weight of the world placed upon His shoulders.
Psalm 22 prophetically illuminates Christ’s words on the cross while He bore the weight of sin upon His very Being.
“My God, My God, why have You forsaken Me? Why are You so far from saving Me, so far from the words of My groaning? O My God, I cry out by day, but You do not answer, by night, and am not silent.” (Ps. 22:1- 2)
God’s heart must have been in His throat and His stomach must have been turned inside out as His Son experienced the agony of the process. Yet The Father could see past the cross to the redemption of His people and the glory of His Son.
But even in feeling abandoned by the Father, even in great suffering, Jesus sets the example of faith and trust in God.
Eight simple words: “Father, into your hands I commit my spirit.”(Luke 23:46)
Philipians 2:5 says, “Your attitude should be the same as that of Christ Jesus...”
There is much in this life we do not understand, but with Christ as our example, we too can say, “Father, into your hands I commit my spirit.”
“When I am afraid, I will trust in You.” (Ps. 56:3)
