The 11th Hebrew letter, Koph

The palm of the hand. The palm is the "wing" of the hand. The child of God lives in the refuge of the shadow of the wings, the hands of God... in His hands where our name is written (Is. 49:15).

Many who are dear to me believe that we can walk away from God, loose our salvation. They have good doctrine for making their point. But I have security in knowing that no matter what, my name is written on His palm, and as surly as there is a nail scare, there is my name, never to be forgotten.

In Hebrew, the hand is where the power is actualized. That is the reason we are to put our palms together when we pray. Palms together suggests calling on the power of the Spirit to be made manifest in our lives. It is the reason we are to lift our hands to the Lord, ready to receive his power when we praise his Name, a confession that our power is actually His.

We are his hands (and feet) in this world. We can do nothing on our own, but because of the sacrifice of the Son of God, by His nail pierced hands, we stand clean, ready to do His work in this world by his power.

Here I am, ready to start my day, with all my ideas, plans, hopes... but until I put my hands together in prayer, to seek his will rather then my own, to live by faith rather then sight, I have no power to accomplish the will of my Lord. No doubt he keeps me, no doubt I cannot be snatched from his hand, and often that is enough. Yet, on days like today when I long to do His will, to know that when I see Him face to face I can know the joy of "well done thou good and faithful servant", I take a moment, put my hands together and seek his face in the shadow of his hands.
