hands speak

Men are asked to pray lifting their holy hands without
wrath and doubting. I Thess.2:8
It’s an invitation to surrender daily to God.
This message spoken with our hands is an answer to
God’s call. Wrath, bitterness, judgmental attitude and
unbelief make our hands heavy. They cause our hands to
hang down.
Our hands were first of all created to worship God.
Everything else is secondary compared with that.
Jesus spoke strongly against us submitting to our own flesh.
“If your right hand (your own authority) causes you to sin,
cut it off and cast it from you…” Mt.5:30
Don’t follow your own heart.
It will surely deceive you.
Don’t trust in the strength of your own arm.
Don’t believe your own lies.
Don’t give in to all your desires and needs.
“Do not let your left hand know
what your right hand is doing.” Matt.6:3
Fill your hands with the good seed.
Hands that are full of godly responsibilities will not have
time to point to other people’s failure.
Faith lifts our hands up.
“Let him who stole, steal no longer, but rather let him labor,
working with his hands what is good, that he may have
something to give him who has need.” Eph.4:28
