The Hand Of The Lord Is Powerful
Scripture Text “He did this so that all the peoples of the earth might know that the hand of the Lord is powerful and so that you might always fear the Lord your God.” Joshua 4 : 24
Joshua set up at Gilgal the twelve stones they had taken out of the Jordan. He said to the Israelites, “In the future when your descendants ask their parents, ‘What do these stones mean?’ tell them, ‘Israel crossed the Jordan on dry ground.’
He did this so that all the peoples of the earth might know that the hand of the Lord is powerful and so that you might always fear the Lord your God.
The hand of the Lord is so powerful that nothing can resist it. When the hand of the Lord is upon you nothing can stop you. God’s hand is still active and mighty. God is still able to deliver and help His people.
In 1 Kings 18:46 we see the hand of God on his prophet – Elijah. There was a three-and-a-half-year drought in Israel. Elijah prayed for rain to come. As the rains descended Elijah girded up his loins, and ran before Ahab.
It was not by his own power, but by “the hand of the Lord” that Elijah overtook Ahab. The king had a horse and chariot but Elijah was on foot. Elijah outrun Ahab’s chariot because the powerful hand of the Lord was on him.
God gave Elijah supernatural strength. Likewise, the powerful hand of the Lord can do supernatural miracles in our lives.
