Praying in the name of Jesus, takes things out of our hands and puts them into the hands of God.
I don't know about you but I don't want things in my hands, my hands shake, and are weak I drop things always and have trouble picking things up.
God though, hangs the stars with His hands, He formed mankind with His hands, the palm of His hands span our known universe, and Jesus said nothing can be plucked from His hands, not the tiniest sparrow or the biggest star we see.
We can pray with confidence, in power, and in praise that our prayers, our lives are in the hands of God, there is no better place any of these things could be.
What could be so big or small that God could not handle it for us?
Is our knowledge or ability greater than God's?
What control do we have over unseen things or even things we can see or touch?
Do we know the beginning from the end?
Today when you pray, put it all in the hands of God and when you get up to walk away in a victory over what hinders you, knowing that God has our prayers, our cares, our family, our lives in His hands.
God’s word says this:
“When he entered Capernaum, a centurion came to him, pleading with him,
He said to him, “Am I to come and heal him?” “Lord,” the centurion replied, “I am not worthy to have you come under my roof. But just say the word, and my servant will be healed. For I too am a man under authority, having soldiers under my command. I say to this one, ‘Go,’ and he goes; and to another, ‘Come,’ and he comes; and to my servant, ‘Do this!’ and he does it.” Hearing this, Jesus was amazed and said to those following him, “Truly I tell you, I have not found anyone in Israel with so great a faith. I tell you that many will come from east and west to share the banquet with Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob in the kingdom of heaven. But the sons of the kingdom will be thrown into the outer darkness where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.” Then Jesus told the centurion, “Go. As you have believed, let it be done for you.” And his servant was healed that very moment.” Matthew 8:5, 7-13 CSB
“What I tell you in the dark, speak in the light. What you hear in a whisper, proclaim on the housetops. Don’t fear those who kill the body but are not able to kill the soul; rather, fear him who is able to destroy both soul and body in hell. Aren’t two sparrows sold for a penny? Yet not one of them falls to the ground without your Father’s consent.“But even the hairs of your head have all been counted.”
So don’t be afraid; you are worth more than many sparrows.”
Matthew 10:27-31 CSB
“Who has stirred up someone from the east? In righteousness he calls him to serve. The Lord hands nations over to him, and he subdues kings. He makes them like dust with his sword, like wind-driven stubble with his bow. He pursues them, going on safely, hardly touching the path with his feet. Who has performed and done this, calling the generations from the beginning? I am the Lord, the first and with the last — I am he.” The coasts and islands see and are afraid, the whole earth trembles. They approach and arrive. Each one helps the other, and says to another, “Take courage!” The craftsman encourages the metalworker; the one who flattens with the hammer encourages the one who strikes the anvil, saying of the soldering, “It is good.” He fastens it with nails so that it will not fall over. But you, Israel, my servant, Jacob, whom I have chosen, descendant of Abraham, my friend — I brought you from the ends of the earth and called you from its farthest corners. I said to you: You are my servant; I have chosen you; I haven’t rejected you. Do not fear, for I am with you; do not be afraid, for I am your God. I will strengthen you; I will help you; I will hold on to you with my righteous right hand.”
Isaiah 41:2-10 CSB
“Listen to me, Jacob, and Israel, the one called by me: I am he; I am the first, I am also the last. My own hand founded the earth, and my right hand spread out the heavens; when I summoned them, they stood up together.”Isaiah 48:12-13 CSB
