THE TOUCH OF THE MASTER'S HAND
My soul follows close behind You; Your right hand upholds me.
About ninety percent of us are right-handed, and the other ten percent favor our left hands. The statistics were probably the same in biblical time, and the right hand was often associated with power and authority. The writers of Scripture used the concept of one's right hand to convey God's power and blessings to us.
Check out some of these references. His right hand is glorious in power. His right hand upholds us. At His right hand are pleasures forevermore. In Isaiah God said "Fear not, for I am with you, be not dismayed for I am your God. I will strengthen you. Yes, I will help you, I will uphold you with My righteous right hand." The psalmist said "you have also given me the shield of Your salvation. Your right hand has held me up."
If you feel weak, weary or worried today, remember the touch of His right hand, reaching down, imparting strength and holding you up.
Say with the writer of Psalm 98:1 Oh, sing to the LORD a new song! For He has done marvelous things; His right hand and His holy arm have gained Him the victory.
I know Thy hand upholdeth me, and will my soul defend; Sufficient is Thy grace, O Lord, to keep me to the end. Fanny Crosby, hymnist
