Fill your hands with the Lord’s work

Fill your hands with the Lord’s work…

The most frequent Hebrew term rendered consecrate is actually a pair of words used together, “mala” (Strong’s #4390) meaning to fill and “yad” (Strong’s #3027) meaning open hand. To fill an open hand, in this context, means for the priests to be devoted to their sacred duty to God and ministering to others. In English there is an expression, “my hands are full,” meaning one is FULLY occupied. So it should be with those consecrated to God during this age. We should have our hands full in the sacred service which is our privilege.
