God's Strong But Gentle Arm

Listen to these two verses:

Isaiah 40:10-11

"See, the Lord GOD comes with might,
and his arm rules for him;
his reward is with him,
and his recompense before him.
He will feed his flock like a shepherd;
he will gather the lambs in his arms,
and carry them in his bosom,
and gently lead the mother sheep."

Imagine these two verses.

God's mighty arm. What do you picture?

God's arm that gathers the lambs. What do you picture?

How do these two images fit together?

God of strength. God of gentleness. A perfect image of a caring, protective Father.

What does it mean to be held by the gentle and caring, but strong arms of God?
