Nibble of Bread : 1 Timothy 2:8

Holy Hands

1 Timothy 2:8

I desire therefore that the men pray everywhere, lifting up holy hands, without wrath and doubting.

 

Clean hands have many valuable purposes, especially depending on the kind of work we do, or the things we may come across on a daily basis. But to have Holy Hands is a whole nother story. Men are designed by God to be the leaders of their household, we don’t do so in an overpowering, dictator type way but we need to be leaders of our families filled with love, mercy and compassion. In order to do this we need to truly strive, at all cost to live holy lives. I know that men have many things still locked up in their closet. I say locked up because we don’t want to let these things go, whether by choice or by addiction. But in order to fully develop the kind of lives that God can use we need to be holy. We need to practice holy so we can teach holy. We need to know also that no matter how strong that weakness is in our lives, God is greater. Jesus is totally capable to fill any void, to replace any addiction and overpower any weakness. Men, our world is falling apart so fast all around us that it really can drag us down with it. As followers of Jesus Christ we need to stand apart from the rest. We need to separate our lives, and the lives of our families so that everything we do aligns with the Word of God. When we do this we are working towards holiness, striving to be blameless and allowing God to be completely in charge of our lives in the big and the small stuff. Men seek God with all your heart, plead with Him for strength to deliver you from anything that is holding you back. God wants to replace anything worldly that you feel you can’t live without, with His unfailing love and mercy. Try Him.
