Last week, I shared how my inductive study is helping me glean truths from God’s Word that I have never learned before. One day this past week, I had fun studying the phrase, “the arm of the Lord.”
The verse I was studying was Isaiah 53:1,
“Who hath believed our report? and to whom is the arm of the Lord revealed?”
The arm of the Lord is a symbol of strength and force. There are many other verses where we see the phrase, “the arm of the Lord.”
- Exodus 6:6, Deuteronomy 5:15 and 26:8 — God redeemed the Hebrews out of slavery from the Egyptians with a stretched out arm.
- Deuteronomy 4:34 — God protected the Israelites from the Egyptians with a stretched out arm.
- Isaiah 30:30 — God will judge with His arm. (“shall shew the lighting down of his arm“)
- Isaiah 33:2 — He is our continual strength every day. (“be thou their arm every morning”)
- Isaiah 40:10 — God rules with his arm. (“his arm shall rule for him.”)
- Isaiah 52:10 — God’s arm signifies His victory in the eyes of all who see. (“The LORD hath made bare his holy arm in the eyes of all the nations; and all the ends of the earth shall see the salvation of our God.”)
- Isaiah 62:8 — God’s arm is a picture of His strength. (“The LORD hath sworn by his right hand, and by the arm of his strength,”)
As I was doing this study, the verse that struck me the most was Jeremiah 32:17:
Ah Lord GOD! behold, thou hast made the heaven and the earth by thy great power and stretched out arm, and there is nothing too hard for thee:
The God that created the earth with His stretched out arm and delivered the Israelites from the Egyptians with His stretched out arm is the same God that can answer my prayers and work in my life today! If He can create the world, then He can answer my prayers if He sees fit. Nothing is too hard for Him!
I know my mind can put limitations on His power, but His stretched out arm is all-powerful! Let’s not limit Him, but instead let’s rely on His stretched out arm!
