The hand represents a significant concept throughout scripture. In the Old Testament, we find a great contrast between deliverance by the hand of the Lord and oppression by the hand of Israel’s enemies. God’s hand held both reward and consequence.
God’s hand also instills hope, because Jesus now sits at the right hand of the majesty on high.
We are instructed to humble ourselves “under the mighty hand of God.”
For leaders, the significance of the hand stems from leading out of humility and providing hope.
We have an opportunity to make a difference with the use of our hand.
