Hand of God

“The hand of God is never absent from human activity, whether on the grand scale of history or in the routines of our everyday lives. God is Lord “and we are the people of His pasture and the sheep of His hand” (Ps 94:7).” (Dynamis 10/15/2019)

“Every moment of my life is for my salvation. Even the tragedies and disasters that befall me (including those of my own making) seem, in hindsight, to have been something that in the hand of God is doing me good.” (Father Stephen Freeman)

“Unquestionably, there is great loneliness in pain and affliction. A wall rears up around those held in the clutches of suffering. The Lord Himself tasted this isolation, as He asked His beloved Peter, “Could you not watch one hour?” (Mk 14:37). And Job, like the Lord, knew that whatever befell him, the hand of God was upon the events. He knew that God cared about his affairs and had not cast him aside.” (OCPM 6/7/2016)

“Each and every moment of our lives, we have a choice to make - whether to be grateful or to be ungrateful; to see life as a blessing, or to see it as a burden; to notice the hand of God present in our own reality, or to arrogantly think that we are our own god and we have achieved everything on our own.” (Fr. Luke Veronis)

“The purpose of prayer is not primarily to move the hand of God but rather to hold the hand of God.” (Jon Courson)
