Hands Held High

by PamFord Davis  
10/14/2011 / Devotionals

"If you know the answer, raise your hand." I remember elementary school teachers giving this instruction and feelings of pride when confident I knew the correct answer. In my timidity, self-confidence was rare and the surge of assurance rushed through my arm as I waved my hand high above my head.

In contrition and humility, I raise my hands. "Let us examine and probe our ways. And let us return to the Lord. We lift up our heart and hands Toward God in heaven; We have transgressed and rebelled, Thou hast not pardoned (Lamentations 3: 40-42 NAS)." Jeremiah felt forsaken in his deep sorrow over the sin of his people.

Sorrow met sustaining faith in his parting words to the Father. "Restore us to Thee, O Lord, that we may be restored; Renew our days as of old, Unless Thou hast utterly rejected us, and art exceedingly angry with us (Lamentations 5:21-22 NAS)." I raise humbled hands to my Savior and Lord who will never leave me or forsake me. (Matthew 28:20b/ Hebrews 13:5b)
