Good Day Worshippers
Some people have attacked me saying we are not supposed to dance, clap lift our hands and bowing is meant for prayer not worship and also other expressions that people use when they worship. I have written this article and I pray that they might understand the power of the lifting hands and its effect.
“I will, therefore that men pray everywhere, lifting up holy hands, without wrath and doubting” 1Timothy 2:8 Our hands reading from 1Timothy the Apostle Paul accords that our hands are holy, holy means that they are sacred, sanctified and set apart this is the basic dictionary meaning of holy. Is there power in lifting up holy hands to a Holy God? Think about it. God’s holiness confounds evil and so when we lift up our hands we are coming against evil in all its work against us.
The power is released when we lifting up holy hands.
“He that hath clean hands, and a pure heart; who hath not lifted up his soul unto vanity, nor sworn deceitfully” Psalms 24:4.
David spoke that our hands our clean, looking even back in days of the sacrifices you would find that they had to offer a clean animal without spot or blemish
David saw and understood that lifting our hands was a sacrifice on its own, lifting our hands is a sacrifice. Our hands our clean and when kept as clean, they offer unto God worship that cause God to route the enemies set against us. When worshipping God lift up your hands as there is power in lifting up your hands.
When we raise our hands we mean two things, one of them is surrender. When we lift up our hands we give it to our lives to God, we surrender ourselves to God. In this we are offering our divine will to God and this allows God to work in us because God works on free will. When we lift our hands we surrender to God.
“A Psalm of David. Blessed be the LORD my strength, which teacheth my hands to war, and my fingers to fight”, Psalms 144:1
Our bodies and hands are instruments of war, they were created as such. That why Ephesians speaks that we should wear the armour of God, it is because our bodies were created as instruments of war and our hands when they were created to do war and fight in the physical and in the spiritual realms.
There is power when we lift up our holy hands which God created to fight, just the fact that you raise your hands you are actually fighting against evil and you win because when you lift up your hands you are only subject to the one you are lifting up your hands to. Lifting hands I a sing of victory as well and that signifies that we have conquered and are conquering Every time someone score a goal in a football match, every home run, every touch down, every victory sport people and celebrities lift up their hands have you ever thought of that?.
Every time when asked a question in class you have to raise your hand, ever thought of that? Every time you are pointed a gun what do you do? You raise your hands isn’t it. When you lift up your hands you might not see the power of God but it is when your spiritual eyes are opened that you get to see the effect of your raised hands and the power they produce. If the evil world raise their hands to curse us or plan evil against us and sometimes they prevails. Why can’t we use our clean and holy hands which were created to fighting, to bless God in all we do?
Every day we lift up our hands and we lift up our hands and we don’t understand what it means. I pray that you come to understand the power of lifting up your hands to God every day of your life with your focus being on God.
