“I Stretch Forth My Hands”

Psalms 143:6

"I stretch forth my hands unto thee: my soul thirsteth after thee as a thirsty land"

Stretching forth of hands signifies an element of surrendering. It is a sign of surrendered heart and is capable of bringing down the glory and the blessings of God. More significantly, it is a gesture of seeking help and especially praising God.

Stretching forth of hands can also express what is inside of us. The passage above is self explanatory in the sense that it reflects the request of a desperate person; someone that is desperate to receive from God. A man that can give his all to God will stretch forth his hands to seek and receive from God.

Whenever  people stretch forth their hands in the presence of God, they show signs of total surrender to the will and the power of God. They also prove themselves to be humble in the presence of God. When you stretch forth thy hands in the crowd, it is a way to call the special attention of God to your situation. God attends to the humble and contrite heart in a special way. God knows how thirsty and desperate you are. Stretch forth your hands and God will see through your heart to your needs. Praise God!
