4401 proxeirotonéō (from 4523 /Saddoukaíos, "before" and 5500/xeironteneō, "stretch out the hand") – properly, "extend the hand before" (used only in Ac 10:41).

4401/proxeirotonéō ("God's hand extended before") illustrates how God, the Creator, plans out all the physical scenes of our lives before the foundation of the world (cf. Ps 139:16; Is 43:13 - 45:7). For example, the Lord's hand determined who would be the initial witnesses of Christ's resurrection (Ac 10:41).

Reflection: God is always in charge . . . because He is always "previous!"
