The Hands that Never Make Mistakes

“If a Christian carves for himself,
he’ll cut his own fingers.” – a Puritan proverb

Our God has hands better than our own to trust.

Hands that are . . .
·         Holding us up.
“Your right hand upholds me.” (Psalm 63:7)

·         Powerful.
“. . . nor did their own arm save them; but it was Your right hand.” (Psalm 44:3)

·         Open and Good.
“You open Your hand, they are filled with good.” (Psalm 104:28)

·         Guiding and Protecting.
“We are . . . the sheep of His hand.” (Psalm 95:7)

·         Victorious.
“His right hand and His holy arm have gained Him the victory.” (Psalm 98:1)

·         Trustworthy.
“My times are in Your hand.” (Psalm 31:15)

·         Compassionate and Healing.
“Jesus, moved with compassion, stretched out His hand and touched him . . . immediately the leprosy left him.” (Mark 1:41)

·         Pierced for us.
“They pierced My hands and My feet.” (Psalm 22:16)

·         and Sovereign.
“The Father loves the Son, and has given all things into His hand.” (John 3:35)

These are the Hands that never make mistakes.
