“Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you in due time.” 1 Peter 5:5-7 KJV
The hand of God is mighty and full of mercy and compassion. It is the hand that delivered the children of Israel from 400 years of oppression, and demonstrated patience and mercy despite their disobedience and rebellious nature. God’s hand offers deliverance (2 King 17:38) and justice. It set us free from the enemy, and makes a place for his children at the banquet table.
The hand of God is filled with love and healing. God wrapped Jesus in love and sent him to lost humanity, so life could be restored. Talk with the Jairus’ parents, the Centurion, the blind man, the leper, the cripple, or demon possessed man about his hand. Mary Magdalene, Lazarus or the widow whose son was raised from the dead know about his hand.
His hand is amazing grace, favor, and provision. Those hands fed thousands, and sustains the universe with precision, purpose and power.
In his hand is strength, joy and a peace that passes all understanding. It lifts you up out of the miry clay and sets your feet on solid ground. Just a simple touch can wipe away tears, and give comfort to the weary soul. The Hand of God removes the stain of sin, restores the broken-hearted and lights the way to everlasting joy.
The Hand of God fights our battles, and shelters us in the midst of the storm. His hand destroys enemies and raises the banner of righteousness over us.
The Hand of God is love that never, ever fails.
