Monday Morning Encouragement -- Nail Scarred Hands


"The right hand of the LORD is exalted; The right hand of the LORD does valiantly." Psalm 118;16

The Bible speaks often of the right hand of the Lord:

He defends with His powerful right hand (Ex 15:6). 

Lightning flashes from His right hand (Deut 33:2). 

Eternal pleasures are in His right hand (Ps 16:11). 

There is refuge in His right hand (Ps 17:7).

His right hand sustains (Ps 18:35). 

There is saving strength in His right hand (Ps 20:6). 

He discerns by His right hand (Ps 21:8). 

His will is accomplished with His right hand (Ps 44:3b). 

His right hand holds those He loves (Ps 73:23).  

He provides land for His people with His right hand (Ps 78:54).

He spread out the heavens with His right hand (Is 48:13). 

He swears by His right hand (Is 62:8). 

I love the right hand of the Lord, but I cherish the left hand of the Lord just as much. For the scar of Calvary's nail is on my Savior's left hand, too. 

Thank you Jesus for your amazing sacrifice!

Today's music video Nail Scarred Hands by Dante Bowe is a testament to the redemption, the freedom we have through the sacrifice of our Savior. 

I love you, I'm thinking of you, and I'm praying for you.


  1. Amen! I'm always amazed how often the Bible mentions the Lord's right hand. I had never put the two together though, although I knew His left hand bears scars too. How blessed we are to have His love and care with us throughout our days. I'm looking forward to seeing Him soon. With the way the world is going, especially with Israel, it looks like it could be close. Amen and Amen.
    Blessings and hugs,

  2. So true, and I definitely need to think more about this. Thank you for all the references. If not for those scars, I would still be lost. Thank You Jesus for this incredible sacrifice.

  3. Thank you Nancy, for your reminders. I know the world is in a sad state, but I try not to watch the news or listen to all of the media, as it just stresses me out... I try to keep peaceful by remaining positive that the Lord will take care of us, no matter what. Hugs.. Marilyn

  4. Beautiful reflection on the power and love symbolized by the Lord's hands! The reminder of His sacrifice is truly humbling and inspiring.
