Good Hand of God

Good Hand of God

You probably haven’t given a second thought today to those two highly skilled instruments affixed to the end of your arms! I’m talking about your hands. Yet, how helpless I would be without them.  They go with me everywhere . . . and it’s a good thing because I am in need of them constantly. I need them to scratch an itch, to eat my meals, to tidy my house, to complete my daily work, etc. They come in “handy” all the time.

There’s another hand, I couldn’t live without. It’s the hand of God. When Ezra and Nehemiah were trying to explain how things just seemed to be “working out” in their lives, they attributed it to God’s hand on them.

KJV Nehemiah 2:18 Then I told them of the hand of my God which was good upon me; . . .

KJV Ezra 8:22 . . . The hand of our God is upon all them for good that seek him; but his power and his wrath is against all them that forsake him.

This hand was not just for them. As Ezra said, it is for all them that seek Him. That means if you are a Bible Christian, a set of hands go with you everywhere you go, preparing the way before you, protecting you from harm, and helping you in a hundred other ways you probably never even realize. If you have a good day, remember the Hand that made it possible.
