Open Hand

18 Mar

Open Hand…

Yadah is a verb in Hebrew meaning ‘to worship with extended hands.’ The root word is yad, which means an open hand.

An open or giving hand stands for an open heart. It is an open heart that worships God. A yad or open hand is a hand open not only to give but to receive.

The hand that closes, or doesn’t give, isn’t going to receive either. If you’re born again, you’re spiritually part of the Jewish family.

That means your life is to be characterized by thanks because the word Jew or Yehudah means one who gives thanks with an open hand, with praise.

So when you give thanks to God, you don’t have to be worried. You can’t be worried and give thanks at the same time. The more you are generous; the more you give, let go, bless, worship, and praise, the more you’re going to receive the blessings.

For the one who has an open hand to give the blessings, is going to be the one who has an open hand to receive them. Be the one who has learned the secret of the open yad, the open hand.

Therefore I want the men everywhere to pray, lifting up holy hands without anger or disputing. 1Timothy 2:8

Today, open the yad of your life and be generous, give and bless from your heart – and the yad of your life will receive from God’s hand.

Walk daily with God at your side!

Love always,

Ed
