IT Depends on whose hands your in.

Written By Pastor Rev. Jeff Sturdivant



A basketball in my hands is worth about $19

A basketball in Michael Jordan’s hands is

worth about $33 million

It depends whose hands it’s in

A baseball in my hands is worth about $6

A baseball in Mark McGuire’s hands is worth $19 million

It depends whose hands it’s in

A tennis racket is useless in my hands

A tennis racket in Pete Sampras’ hands

is a Wimbledon Championship

It depends whose hands it’s in

A rod in my hands will keep away a wild animal

A rod in Moses’ hands will part the mighty sea

It depends whose hands it’s in

A sling shot in my hands is a kid’s toy

A sling shot in David’s hand is a mighty weapon.

It depends whose hands it’s in

Two fish and 5 loaves of bread in my hands

is a couple of fish sandwiches.

Two fish and 5 loaves of bread in God’s

hands will feed thousands It depends whose hands it’s in

Nails in my hands might produce a birdhouse

Nails in Jesus Christ’s hands will produce

salvation for the entire world.

It depends whose hands it’s in

As you see now it depends whose hands it’s in.

So put your concerns, your worries, your fears,

your hopes, your dreams, your families and

your relationships in God’s hands because

It depends whose hands it’s in.(Author Unknown)

No matter what life offers if you put yourself in the hands of the lord it will all work out in the end.Even if it is to be chastened as David!

I Chronicales 21:10-13

10 Go and tell David, saying, Thus saith the LORD, I offer thee three things: choose thee one of them, that I may do it unto thee.

11 So Gad came to David, and said unto him, Thus saith the LORD, Choose thee

12 Either three years’ famine; or three months to be destroyed before thy foes, while that the sword of thine enemies overtaketh thee; or else three days the sword of the LORD, even the pestilence, in the land, and the angel of the LORD destroying throughout all the coasts of Israel. Now therefore advise thyself what word I shall bring again to him that sent me.

13 And David said unto Gad, I am in a great strait: let me fall now into the hand of the LORD; for very great are his mercies: but let me not fall into the hand of man.

To the Disciples the five loaves and two fishes were just a meal for a few in their hands but in the hands of our Lord it was a meal for thousands. Five thousand beside women and children. Lets asume 2/3 were married that makes 8334 people then of the 4167 familys lets assume they all had 1 child that makes 4167 more people for a total of 12,501 people with just five loaves and two fishes only in HIS hands.

John 6:

1 After these things Jesus went over the sea of Galilee, which is the sea of Tiberias.

2 And a great multitude followed him, because they saw his miracles which he did on them that were diseased.

3 And Jesus went up into a mountain, and there he sat with his disciples.

4 And the passover, a feast of the Jews, was nigh.

5 When Jesus then lifted up his eyes, and saw a great company come unto him, he saith unto Philip, Whence shall we buy bread, that these may eat?

6 And this he said to prove him: for he himself knew what he would do.

7 Philip answered him, Two hundred pennyworth of bread is not sufficient for them, that every one of them may take a little.

8 One of his disciples, Andrew, Simon Peter’s brother, saith unto him,

9 There is a lad here, which hath five barley loaves, and two small fishes: but what are they among so many?

10 And Jesus said, Make the men sit down. Now there was much grass in the place. So the men sat down, in number about five thousand.

11 And Jesus took the loaves; and when he had given thanks, he distributed to the disciples, and the disciples to them that were set down; and likewise of the fishes as much as they would.

12 When they were filled, he said unto his disciples, Gather up the fragments that remain, that nothing be lost.

13 Therefore they gathered them together, and filled twelve baskets with the fragments of the five barley loaves, which remained over and above unto them that had eaten.

14 Then those men, when they had seen the miracle that Jesus did, said, This is of a truth that prophet that should come into the world.
