Seeing God’s Hand

Seeing God's Hand

Imagine seeing God’s hand in your life.

What would it look like? How would it feel?

If you move in Christian circles, you’ve probably heard someone say, ”I saw God’s hand in my life!”. It’s a phrase that comes up often in conversations with other Christians or in testimonies given at church.

But what exactly does seeing God’s hand in your life mean? Is this something you’re supposed to look for? Or is it already there?

These questions have been on my mind a lot lately. Because it seems we’re all searching for God’s hand. At our core, we understand He is the answer to our problems. And we know if we could just figure out how to see His hand, things would turn around and our lives would change forever.

Every day we face challenges. Sometimes our struggles are big… broken relationships, health concerns, mountains of unpaid bills. Other times it’s the little things that drive us completely crazy… dinner to cook, never-ending piles of laundry and dishes. As they say, “The struggle is real!” And it is ya’ll! Way too real. And when these challenges add up, they leave us with a sinking, overwhelmed, exhausted feeling. Instead of searching for God’s hand we find ourselves struggling just to keep up with the demands of daily life.

So, in our quest to find God’s hand, I decided to write a devotional, 7 Simple Ways to See God’s Hand in Your Life. In it we’ll explore and answer the burning question, how can I see God’s hand in my life today? It’s completely free to download and written to encourage and uplift you on the journey to seeing God’s hand.

There’s an anonymous quote I love. It says… Those who leave everything in God’s hand will eventually see God’s hand in everything.” That’s a beautiful sentiment and one I can completely get behind. Because the truth is, the more we look for God in our lives, the more we see Him. He is always at work molding and shaping us into the people He wants us to become. And He is always protecting and loving us no matter what challenges we face.

Seeing God’s hand in everything is a hallmark of Christian life. His hand tells us the story of who He is and how He reaches out to us in our struggles. It’s an image of the divine interaction between God and His people. And it’s God’s characteristics, His very nature, that are on display when we feel His healing touch.

As we work our way through this short (and free 😊) Bible Study, we’ll look at six simple ways to see God’s hand in our lives…

#1 Walk Hand in Hand with God

A new beginning starts on day 1! To see God’s hand, take hold of it and learn to walk hand in hand with Him.

#2 Inscribed on His Hand

Day 2 is all about God’s deep and unwavering affection for us. This lesson will reveal the true nature of our relationship with Him.

God’s generosity is immeasurable! And His hand goes above and beyond to provide all we need. This is the truth we’ll explore on day 4.

We all have times when we feel weak. But at our lowest, we have the strength of God’s hand to rely on. Day 5 offers us hope for our weakest moments.

 

#6 Secure in His Hand

It’s human nature to seek safety. On day 6 we’ll talk about where real security comes. I’ll give you one guess… That’s right, it’s God’s hand!

 

#7 is a Life Changer!

You won’t want to miss this special lesson on day #7. It will change everything you thought you knew about your relationship with Jesus!

I hope you’ll resist the temptation to jump ahead because each of the six lessons leads up to this life-changing truth!

More Inspiring Bible Verses about God's Hands

Last week we looked at some Inspiring Bible verses about God’s Hands. There are so many, honestly, it was hard for me to pick just a few. So, this week I’d like to share More Inspiring Bible Verses about God’s Hands.

As we talked about then, hands are a constant in my life. They play an important part in my artwork. Each piece begins with a word that reminds me of who God is. From there I place pictures of hands into the art to spell out that unique word in American sign language. Without these pictures, my art wouldn’t exist.

And these pictures wouldn’t exist without the person posing for them. They’re my father’s hands and that makes them extra special to me. Plus, he thinks it’s kinda funny being a hand model. 😊  He didn’t see that one coming.

My father’s hands have done so many things for me over the years. When I was young, his hand took mine as we walked down the sidewalk together, keeping me close and protected. Later, his hands held me up and kept my head above water while I learned to swim in my grandparent’s backyard pool. During the terrible teen years, his hand grabbed the steering wheel and kept me from veering into oncoming traffic as he taught me how to drive. (Whew, thanks for that one, Dad!) And now as an adult, his hands are still there guiding me. Hey, they’re even in my artwork! If you asked him about these things, he’d say he was just doing what dads do, loving and supporting their kids as they make their way through life.

Yes, A father’s hands do so many things. And our Heavenly Father’s hands are no different. In times of trouble, God’s hands take care of us and give us shelter. When we feel down, defeated or all alone, they comfort us. When we don’t know what comes next, they mold and shape us into our future selves. And when we feel weak, they offer us the strength to keep going. Why? Because that’s what our loving Heavenly Father does. His hands are there for us through all of life ups and downs. Nothing is too big for Him to handle. And nothing is too small for Him to notice.

As you read these verses, look closing at what God has to say to you. Can you see His hands in your life? I hope so. And I pray that you will find comfort and encouragement in God’s hands today.

God’s hands take care of us

And He has made My mouth like a sharp sword;
In the shadow of His hand He has hidden Me,
And made Me a polished shaft;
In His quiver He has hidden Me.”

                              Isaiah 49:2

 

Therefore humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God, that He may exalt you in due time, casting all your care upon Him, for He cares for you.

                             1 Peter 5:6-7

They stand up together.

                                Acts 7:55

 

No One Can take us out of God’s hand!

And I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; neither shall anyone snatch them out of My hand. My Father, who has given them to Me, is greater than all; and no one is able to snatch them out of My Father’s hand.

                                 John 10:28-29
