2 Kings 17:39 Scripture Meditation by Stephen Taylor

2 Kings 17:39

“Rather, worship the LORD your God; it is He who will deliver you from the hand of all your enemies.”

The way this verse was revealed to me by the Holy Spirit yesterday and today starts with the phrase, “from the hand of all your enemies,” which to me, means we are already in the enemy’s hands before we come to Christ. The only way to get out of the enemy’s hand is to worship the LORD, and you only do that after you acknowledge and accept Him!

I believe that repentance is worship and that it is pleasing to the Lord! And it says, once you do that, He will deliver you! So, the way I read this verse is that I was already in the enemy’s hands until I accepted and acknowledged Christ as my Lord and Savior (worship in repentance), and then He delivered me (salvation)!!! Now, let’s look at another verse.

John 10:28: I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; no one will snatch them out of my hand.

Those are Jesus’ words, and boy, are they comforting! What the Holy Spirit revealed to me this morning is that no matter what, we are in someone’s hand. It can either be the enemy, or it can be the pierced hand of King Jesus!

Jesus can take us from death to life, but once we are there, no one can snatch us from Him! So, as we go about this day and every day forward, it’s up to us whose hands we want to be in: the Hands that bled for you or the hands that tried to bind you. The Hands that took the nails or the hands that drove them in. The Hands that heal or the hands that hurt. 


Thank you, King Jesus!!!! I choose this day to rest in your Hands and worship you in heart, mind, word, and deed! I repent! I surrender!! I love You!

- to Papa God, The Lion of Judah, and our Comforter the Holy Spirit!!!!
