“Behold, I have inscribed you on the palms of My hands” (Isaiah 49:16).
Each of us bear in our hands reminders of life events that make up our story. On my right hand is the scar from a childhood dog bite, while on my left is the seemingly permanent swelling of a broken finger. The hand of God is an often used metaphor in describing the creative work of God; his provision, and power. That we are inscribed on God’s palms is a comforting reminder that we are ever before him as he is accomplishing his purposes.
