Throughout scripture, God’s “right hand” is the symbol of His power, His protection, His love and His grace.

Like your name, O God, your praise reaches to the ends of the earth; your right hand is filled with righteousness. Psalm 48:10

Glad songs of salvation are in the tents of the righteous: “The right hand of the Lord does valiantly, the right hand of the Lord exalts, the right hand of the Lord does valiantly!” Psalm 118:15-16

So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand. Is 41:10

Your right hand, O Lord, glorious in power, your right hand, O Lord, shatters the enemy. Exodus 15:6

You make known to me the path of life; in your presence there is fullness of joy; at your right hand are pleasures forevermore. Psalm 16:11

You have given me the shield of your salvation, and your right hand supported me, and your gentleness made me great. Psalm 18:35

Now I know that the Lord saves his anointed; he will answer him from his holy heaven with the saving might of his right hand. Psalm 20:6

Now, in Colossians 3:1, the Apostle Paul writes this:

If then you have been raised with Christ, seek the things that are above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God.

And suddenly, we know why His hand is filled with righteousness, why it strengthens and upholds us, why it is filled with saving might. We know why there are glad songs of salvation and fullness of joy  — we know how He has shattered the enemy — we know the mightiest of mighty things He has done.

We know, because, we see the One who has been sitting there all along, wiping our tears and our grief and our sins away, having made all concession on our behalf.

Great and Almighty Jesus, Yours is the victory.
