Engraved on His Hands

October 12

Daily Bible Reading: Isaiah 48 - 49

Verse of the Day: Isaiah 49:16 – “Behold, I have graven thee upon the palms of my hands; thy walls are continually before me.”

I know that this verse probably deals with the Ephod that God had made for the High Priest. However, every time I read and meditate on this verse, I think about Jesus, my Savior.

A lady at one of the churches once asked me what the only man-made thing was that would be in Heaven. I didn’t know. She smiled and said the nail holes in Jesus’ hands.

When I read this verse, I pause and think about the truth that I am engraved on the hand of Jesus. That nail-hole is there because of me – it paid my debt. I am redeemed and restored because of the crucifixion. I am God’s child because of the wounds of my Savior.

Prayer: Precious Wounded Savior, thank You that You were willing to come and die in my place. Thank You that You rose again to release me from bondage. Thank You. Amen.
