Psalms 145:16 – When you open your hand, you satisfy the hunger and thirst of every living thing. (NLT)

Read: Isaiah 59:1-2

In the 1986 FIFA World Cup quarterfinal match between Argentina and England, Diego Maradona scored a goal with his hand. The goal was dubbed “Hand of God” because it was illegal under football rules to touch the ball with the hands. But because the referees did not have a clear view of the play, the goal was given, and Argentina went on to win the match. Maradona’s goal may not have counted in modern times, but we can learn from it.

The fact that the three referees did not spot the player’s use of his hand to poach the ball into the net can be equated to God’s miraculous works. In today’s Bible reading, David testified to the ability of God’s hand to do wonders. This is because the Almighty does things that seem beyond human comprehension, all to the glory of His name. In 2 Kings 4:1–7, when Elisha told the widow to borrow many buckets and pour oil into them from the little she had, it sounded ridiculous. However, she obeyed, and the hand of God suspended the natural for the supernatural to take its course.

Beloved, whatever your needs are, I encourage you to trust in God’s hand to make it happen. The hand of God is not too short—it can rescue you from any storm, whether in health, finances, marriage, or spiritual growth. Through your prayer, Bible study, and building of your faith, you will activate the manifestation of God’s hand in your life and experience the miraculous.


Hymn: Jesus Saves – Priscilla J. Owens (1882)

1. Father, I surrender to You. Please carry me in Your hands and sustain me on the journey of destiny.

2. Father, please calm every raging storm assigned to blow me off the radar of glory.


1. Let’s pray against an uproar in the country, especially failures in government policies.

2. Pray against extreme weather conditions and the abnormal functioning of nature.

3. Pray against a major affliction and chronic hardship in Europe and the UK.
