We are not simply physical beings in a material world, we are God’s own handy work. With His hands, He touched us, He created us, and He breathed life into us. We are eternal beings made from his hands. We are sons and daughters of the living God. I know I am. Why? Because, “He touched me”, and made me His own. Understanding the truth in that, I live a happy fulfilled life, understanding who I really am.
God has touched me, He has transformed my life. The way sunlight touches my skin and makes me feel warm, God touches my heart warming my spirit and soul.
God will cleanse you with His touch.
Luke 5:12-16 While Jesus was in one of the towns, a man came along who was covered with leprosy. When he saw Jesus, he fell with his face to the ground and begged him, “Lord, if you are willing, you can make me clean.” Jesus reached out his hand and touched the man. “I am willing,” he said. “Be clean!” And immediately the leprosy left him.
We live in a dog eat dog, anxious, stressful, and hurtful society. Do you suffer from a spiritual sickness? It is easy to become overcome with sickness in our own flesh, living as though we are spiritual lepers, being less than our God wants us to be. But God can and will reach down and cleanse us. He is willing, just ask Him, “Touch me Lord”, and you will be clean. Your body, mind and spirit will be cleansed and renewed by His touch.
God will bring you liberty and light with His touch.
Matthew 9:28-30 And when he had gone indoors, the blind men came to him, and he asked them, “Do you believe that I am able to do this?” “Yes, Lord,” they replied. Then he touched their eyes and said, “According to your faith will it be done to you”; and their sight was restored.
Just as Jesus gave sight to the blind men, God brings His light into our lives, so that we have an understanding of Him and His Word. This light enables us to see Him and grow in maturity of the spirit. As we see more, our faith increases, and as a result more of God is revealed in our lives. We grow stronger in His might, as He touches us and brings forth light into our lives to see His truth. What a glorious, illuminating experience that is. As it was with the blind men, God asks of you, “Do you believe I am able to make you see? You only need to reply “Yes Lord”. He will touch your spiritual eyes, and according to your faith it will be done unto you. His touch brings you spiritual sight.
Mark 7:32-35 In Decapolis some people brought Jesus a man who was deaf and could hardly talk, and they begged him to place his hand on the man. After he took him aside, away from the crowd, Jesus touched him, putting his fingers into the man’s ears. “Be opened!” At this, the man’s ears were opened, his tongue was loosened and he began to speak plainly.
Jesus’ touch meant everything to the man who was deaf and could hardly speak. He could not speak because he could not hear. His tongue did not know how to form itself for him to be able to speak as his ears had never heard a sound for his mouth to relate to. This is true in a lot of our lives. We go through life and we never hear what the Spirit of God is saying to us. We are so busy with our lives, that we cannot hear God, and our words do not reflect God in our lives. We are bound, our hearts are not free to express with our voice the richness and goodness of God, because we cannot hear His voice with everything going on around us. Just as Jesus took the man aside, away from the crowd, God gently takes us by the hand, and walks us away from all the distractions in our life. He does this so He can be alone and intimate with us. Jesus touched the man’s ears, and immediately he could hear and speak plainly. God wants to do the same with you and I. He wants to be alone with us, intimate. He wants to touch our spiritual ears so that we can hear our Masters voice. And if we can hear His voice, our mouths will speak forth of His goodness, salvation and mercy. As a result our lives and the lives of others will be changed by His touch, as we become His beacons of hope to a lost and dying world.
God’s touch will bring assurance in your life.
There are times in our lives when we become afraid and our lives seem to fall out from beneath us. We crumble underneath the load, weight, fear and strain of finances, marriage, children, job, faith…..the list goes on and. How many times in our lives, do we simply need for God to reach down, and with His gentle touch say, “Get up, Don’t be afraid”? And with His touch, we can rise. And when we get up all the things that were weighing us down, all the fears, all the worry, all the stress and anxiety are gone. When we look up, we see nothing but Him. All we need is that reassuring touch from God. We need to hear the words “Don’t be afraid” spoken by God in our lives, followed by His gentle touch upon us, giving us the assurance that all is well.
So when I say “He touched me”, I mean it. He touches me every single day. He opens my eyes with his touch so that I might see His truth, so that it might be revealed in my life. He opens my ears with His touch so that I can hear His Spirit giving me guidance, correction and understanding. And when I am afraid, His touch gives me the assurance that He is in control, and the things that are weighing me down seem to fade away in His presence.
