The Creator’s Hands

“In His hand are the deep places of the earth: . . . and His hands formed the dry land” (Psalm 95:4,5).

When the Creator “put His hands” on the blind man of Bethsaida, restoring his sight (Mark 8:23–25) it was not an isolated incident: “Now when the sun was setting, all they that had any sick with divers diseases brought them unto Him; and He laid His hands on every one of them, and healed them” (Luke 4:40).

The creative hands of the Lord Jesus extend to every aspect of creation: “But unto the Son He saith. . . . Thou, Lord, in the beginning hast laid the foundation of the earth; and the heavens are the works of thine hands” (Hebrews 1:8,10). The Lord opens His hand to feed all His creatures on the lands and in the seas (Psalm 104:28). His hand does indeed hold “the deep places of the earth,” and, as our text continues, “His hands formed the dry land.”

His hands also became engraved, eventually nailed to a cross according to divine plan (Psalm 22:16). The Lord had previously asked, “Can a woman forget her sucking child, that she should not have compassion on the son of her womb? yea, they may forget, yet will I not forget thee. Behold, I have graven thee upon the palms of my hands . . .” (Isaiah 49:15,16), the same hands pierced on Calvary.

He blessed children, placing hands on them, and reached out from glory to touch a trembling disciple (Revelation 1:17). He holds disciples today in His hand, affirming: “neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand” (John 10:28).

It was while the Lord “lifted up His hands, and blessed them” that He was “carried up into heaven” (Luke 24:50,51). He will return with uplifted hands, too, for the Scripture reads, “this same Jesus, which is taken up . . . shall so come in like manner as ye have seen Him go into heaven” (Acts 1:11). PGH
