As I continue exploring the “hand” imagery in the Bible, I find another beautiful passage. Many people I know memorize this passage and hold it in their hearts as their favorite, most comforting verse. Maybe you’ll feel that way as well. It’s Psalm 73:23-26, written by a temple musician, Asaph, about God. He says this:
Yet I am always with you;
you hold me by my right hand.
You guide me with your counsel,
and afterward you will take me into glory.
Whom have I in heaven but you?
And earth has nothing I desire besides you.
My flesh and my heart may fail,
but God is the strength of my heart
and my portion forever.
Picture God holding your hand. He guides and comforts. How beautiful to feel it!
