Around Easter time each year, believers in Christ all around the world reflect and consider the nail-pierced hands of Jesus probably more than any other time of the year. It’s a time that makes us think about His hands and feet pierced upon the cross for our iniquities.
However, the crucifixion accounts are not the only places where God’s hands are mentioned. Matter of fact, there are several verses, too many for even this article, that mention the hand of God.
For example, in Deuteronomy 3:24, we learn of the strength of God’s hand, “O Sovereign Lord, you have only begun to show your greatness and the strength of your hand to me, your servant…”
In Joshua 4:24, we read of his powerful hand, “He did this so all the nations of the earth might know that the Lord’s hand is powerful, and so you might fear the Lord your God forever.”
