It is not uncommon to hear people from every walk of life, refer to the individuals who work closely with them as their right hand. The Urban Dictionary defines right hand as a person you can count on through hard times and good times. They are there to support you and hold you up, not bring you down. They are your support system. In time, you become so close to you that you love them like family
Is the right hand only limited to our relationship with each other? No! The Bible also talks about the right hand of God. The individuals we call our right hand are people who are human and can fail just like us. But when we look to God as our right hand; we have a totally different outcome. In Exodus 15:6 NLT, Moses said, “Your right hand, O Lord, is glorious in power. Your right hand, O Lord, smashes the enemy.” What led to this? Well Moses was on the other side of the Red Sea. After they left Egypt, Pharaoh had a change of heart and he sent his army to bring his unpaid labor force back in to captivity.
That was the enemy’s plan but not God’s plan. When the children of Israel looked up and saw the army coming after them, they were afraid. But Moses quieted the people; he said, “Don’t be afraid. Just stand still and watch the Lord rescue you today. The Egyptians you see today will never be seen again. The Lord himself will fight for you. Just stay calm.” Moses understood that there is power in God’s right hand. He had no idea what God was going to do but he was confident in the power of God’s right hand.
As the army advanced, God parted the waters of the Red Sea and they walked over on dry land. The Egyptian army pursued them into the Red Sea but when they were safe on the other side; God closed the waters and the mighty army perished. If there is a Red Sea in your path, God is able to part the waters with His powerful right hand.
Thought for Today: Friend, there is no match for the power of God’s right hand.
Have a blessed day and walk in faith and victory.
