The right hand of the Lord is shown in the Word of God to be one of the mightiest aspects of God’s power on display. When God starts to mention bringing His right hand into the equation, nothing can withstand His power! Not enemies, not the forces of nature, not sin, not darkness, not spiritual oppression – nothing.
Sometimes you need a reminder of the sheer magnitude of the power of God, especially when you feel powerless. You worship an all-powerful God and it’s easy to forget the mind-boggling greatness of the Creator of the world who spoke all of life into existence when we’re in a weakened condition.
Just as powerful in your life is this: When you position yourself at the right hand of the Lord, He doesn’t just reveal His power through His right hand, but He reveals His power though you life in unique and personal ways. In your situations, fears and concerns, your needs. “The voice of rejoicing and salvation is in the tents of the righteous,” the Psalmist wrote. Why?
When we position ourselves at the right hand of the Lord, He doesn’t just reveal His power through His right hand, but He reveals His power though our lives~Alicia Purdy
Because the power of God displayed in the lives of those who choose to live by His side is something worth shouting about. Hallelujah! “I shall not die, but I shall live and declare the works of the Lord!” That is a promise given to you, and you can stand on it when the Lord is truly your Shepherd.
The right hand of the Lord is a small aspect of His power, but there are two different functions – One is when He uses the power of His right hand. The other is when you place yourself at His right hand and He gives you that power!

Thought for today: Raise Your Hands to Praise the Right Hand of the Lord
There is a reason why the Lord sent a word to you today to stir your memory of who He is. So often believers spend more time telling God about their situation instead of telling their situation about God! You have the authority through Jesus Christ to speak words of life, faith, truth and love over the darkness and it must obey!
Take time to strengthen your faith in the mighty, matchless power of God and remind yourself of His awesome power. Don’t fret about what you can’t control. His Word is alive- read it and stand on it! (Hebrews 4:12) Pray and release control to Him. Invite His will into your situation. (Matt. 6:10) His vital presence dwells in your praise- lift up your hands and worship the Lord! (Psalm 22:3)
