This Same Power – This Same Strong Hand and Powerful Arm

posted by Mark and Jill

“Remember the miraculous signs and wonders, and the strong hand and powerful arm with which he brought you out of Egypt.

The Lord your God will use this same power…Do not be afraid…for the Lord your God is among you,

and he is a great and awesome God.” Deuteronomy 7:19,21

The strong hand of Jesus is reaching out to you. He’s reaching out to touch you, heal you, strengthen you, encourage you, and lift you above despair. Grab on to the hand that has done mighty things in history. Real history. There is nothing mythological about it. God has performed miracle upon miracle for His children, and He continues to this day. What is the miracle you need? This same Strong Arm that delivered Israel from slavery and healed a man’s deformed hand and fed thousands of people with minimum supply and parted the Red Sea and made the stars…He lives, and He loves you. Can you reach out your hand in faith into His? Feel that strong grasp, strong enough to hold you up in your time of deepest need.

Jesus,

I reach my hand up to you. Thank you for reaching down to me.

Pick me up and carry me. Strengthen me and teach me to love as you love,

loving you and loving every person in my life without exception.

Thank you that you are available to help me do the impossible.

Amen.
