When we hold something that is precious to us, we hold it firmly so that we don’t let go.
I, your God, have a firm grip on you and I’m not letting go. I’m telling you, Don’t panic. I’m right here to help you. (The Message)
God loves us so much that he keeps hold of us so that he is always there to help us and to guide us.
So don’t panic, God is holding you firmly in His grasp.
