INTRODUCTION: The hand of God upon our lives is for our well-being, and as we are devoted to studying and understanding God's Word, we will see that His hand is always moving over us and working in and through us.
God’s hand will make our hands full, having favour with the world.
God’s hand will cause you to plunder the enemy. (Exodus 3:22)
God brings us out of our circumstances with His mighty hand. (Exodus 13:3)
Our strength does not lay in flesh or with men, but we are strengthened by God.
Sometimes we are too proud to allow God’s hand to redirect our lives in the right direction.
God’s hand on our lives is like a parent’s hand to a baby. The baby is totally dependent on its parent’s hand to feed, care, love, guide, nurture and carry it. Without the hands of parents, the baby will die.
To have God’s hand over our lives, we need to know how His hand works.
Ezra’s life testifies that by the Word of God and through the Holy Spirit, we can experience the hand of God in our lives.
The Word enables God to move in and through us for our good.
The invisible hand of God upon us is always moving for our ultimate good.
Being well-versed causes God’s hand to give you everything you ask for.
We cannot expect to have everything we ask for if we do not know or study the word of God.
Being devoted to the studies of the word of God, learning how He moves and functions will allow Him to open doors for you beyond all-natural understanding.
Ezra, being well-versed in the things of God, had access to everything he needed because God’s hand was upon him.
CONCLUSION: Being well-versed in the Word of God directs us to God’s plans for our lives. God’s hand is gentle and will never force into a direction. It is our responsibility to grow closer to Him and learn His ways and plans for us, and as we pursue to live in pursuit of His divine plans, He will rest His hand of protection, favour, and guidance upon us.
