Then he said to the man, “Stretch out your hand.” So he stretched it out and it was completely restored, just as sound as the other. – Matthew 12:13
According to Merriam Webster dictionary, the definition of stretch is, “to make (something) wider or longer by pulling it”.
In this verse, God commanded the man to stretch out his hand and when he obeyed, restoration came. I believe that as we obey God in stretching out our patience, humility, or love, we restore many things like relationships, friendships, and other important things in our lives.
I pray that today as we choose to obey Him, we see His hands restore many things in our lives.
