Lifting up your hands means that you:
- Submit to God,
- You reverence Him for His greatness, for Him being God and His authority, His rule, His reign.
- You are recognizing that only God can solve it! Only God can cause things to work out for your good…Romans 8:28.
Hands in forward position commands:
You are commanding peace in your life.
You are commanding that the enemy has no rule in your life.
You are commanding that your life be blessed, your family be blessed, your home be blessed, your job be blessed, your friends be blessed, your enemies are cast down,
Your strongholds are breaking apart, you are commanding life and life more abundantly, you are commanding everything your hands touch will prosper!
You are cancelling depression and anxiety,
You are cancelling the enemy away from your marriage!
You are casting out demons that are still lingering in your life!
You are cancelling addiction. Moses stretched his hand and then in another scripture he stretches out his rod and through God he parted the sea!

Exodus 14:26-31 GNT | Good News Translation
26 The Lord said to Moses, “Hold out your hand over the sea, and the water will come back over the Egyptians and their chariots and drivers.” 27 So Moses held out his hand over the sea, and at daybreak the water returned to its normal level. The Egyptians tried to escape from the water, but the Lord threw them into the sea. 28 The water returned and covered the chariots, the drivers, and all the Egyptian army that had followed the Israelites into the sea; not one of them was left. 29 But the Israelites walked through the sea on dry ground, with walls of water on both sides.
30 On that day the Lord saved the people of Israel from the Egyptians, and the Israelites saw them lying dead on the seashore. 31 When the Israelites saw the great power with which the Lord had defeated the Egyptians, they stood in awe of the Lord; and they had faith in the Lord and in his servant Moses.
Romans 4:17 GNT | Good News Translation
