In this devotional, I’d like to share some Inspiring Bible verses about God’s Hands. These hand of God scriptures that have helped me along life’s path and inspired my artwork. I pray that they will inspire and encourage your heart the same way they have mine.
There are so many Bible verses about God’s hands in the Holy Bible!
Each one reminds me that God is present in our lives, even when we can’t feel His loving touch.
That truth has inspired me to create Master’s Hand Collection, a series of Christian Art that uses sign language to depict God’s mighty hand guiding us through life.
As you might already suspect, I spend a great deal of time thinking about hands. How to pose, photograph, and place them in my artwork. Hands are a constant in my life.
But it’s more than just hands, they are God’s hands that fill my mind.
Every scripture I read about God’s hands inspires me to create and to be creative. Each one encourages me to delve deeper and deeper still into my relationship with the One True God.
As I look back over my life, I can see God’s hands guiding me to this moment in time, a time such as this. Knowing without a doubt that His hand is present in my life humbles me, brings me to my knees in grateful praise, and makes me want to share His loving touch with everyone else.
When I created Master’s Hand Collection a few years ago, the message God wanted me to convey was crystal clear. His hands are always at work in our lives. I pray through sharing these inspiring Bible verses about God’s hands you’ll see Him at work in your life and be able to say… Lord, it’s in your hands.
So, let’s dive into God’s Word and find inspiration knowing we are in the palm of His hand.

As I said before, hands play an important part in my Bible Verse Art.
Each piece begins with a word that reminds me of God’s blessings. 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.
But 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 my 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 many things. And our Heavenly Father’s hands are no different.
In difficult times, the hands of God 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’s ups and downs. Nothing is too big for Him to handle. And nothing is too small for Him to notice.
No matter what we face, we can leave it all in His hand!
As we’ve opened up the Word of God to read these Inspiring Bible Verses about God’s Hands together, I pray you’ve seen Him reaching out to you.
That they spoke to your heart and reminded you of a time when His hands were “visible” in your life. And that they have inspired you to seek a closer and more meaningful relationship with Him.
Most of all, whatever you’re facing today, I truly hope you’ll be able to say… Lord, it’s in Your hands.
Please leave a comment below and let me know which of these scriptures spoke to you today.
In case you’re curious, my personal favorite is the potter and clay Bible verse from Isaiah 64:8. It always reminds me that I’m a work in progress and God is still molding me into the person I’ll become.
May God’s loving touch be on you today and always!
