Our marvelous hands.
Besides being used for the obvious, hands can be somehow linked to the mouth’s operation. Ever known a person who “couldn’t talk if their hands were tied”? Of course you have.
The hands may also signal a person’s intent. Understanding “hand signals” people use can be key to knowing a person’s motive or desire. Specifically, how and where their hand is placed ON you can reveal a lot.
For example, when someone places their hand…
On your head, it’s to bless and encourage you, but…
Patting your head could mean they are patronizing you.
On your mouth, they’re attempting to stifle you
On your neck, prepare to be choked
On your shoulder, it’s a sign they agree with you, unless…
The hand roughly squeezes the shoulder, pushing. Disgust and mad
On your arm, companionship
Hand in hand, covenant
On your chest, making a point
On your back, consoling and loving
On your belly, humor at your expense…
In your belly, well, you know what that means
On your hips, are they that good of friend?
On your rear end, well, depends on how long it lingers
On your legs and ankles, you are being held back
But under your feet, you’re being lifted to new heights.
“Don’t be afraid, for I am with you. Don’t be discouraged, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you. I will hold you up with my victorious right hand.”(Isaiah 41:10 NLT)

His hand is mighty to save!
