There are few things that are as precious as the touch of someone you love, be it parent, child, or love. Just the touch of a mother’s hand on the fevered brow of a child can sooth his tears, an arm around someone you love in a time of trouble comforts, so it is natural for us to want to touch Him, the Lord Jesus. Matthew 9:20-22 Just then a woman who had hemorrhaged for twelve years slipped in from behind and lightly touched his robe. She was thinking to herself, “If I can just put a finger on his robe, I’ll get well.” Jesus turned—caught her at it. Then he reassured her: “Courage, daughter. You took a risk of faith, and now you’re well.” The woman was well from then on.
Do you need to be quieted? Matthew.8: 3 So He touched her hand, and the fever left her. And she arose and served them. The Illuminating Touch Matthew 9:29 Then He touched their eyes saying, “According to your faith let it be to you.” The Reassuring Touch Matthew 17:7 But Jesus came and touched them and said “Arise, and do not be afraid.” The Liberating Touch Matthew 7:33 And He took him aside from the multitude, and put His fingers in his ears, and he spat and touched his tongue. The Healing Touch Luke 22:51 Jesus said, “Permit even this.” And He touched his ear and healed him. The Cleansing Touch Matthew 8:3 Then Jesus put out His hand and touched him saying, “I am willing; be cleansed.” Immediately his leprosy was healed.
I could go on through the scriptures and give you one for anything you need, but you get the idea. Most important is the personal touch that you can feel when you just have a little conversation with Him. Sometimes it seems that everyone around us is so engrossed in their own problems that ours seem insignificant, we feel lonely and small, but when we go to Jesus, He cares for us.
What do you need today? Are you lonely, depressed, sick, just need the warmth of a loving touch? 1 Peter 5:7 says: Casting all your care upon Him, for He cares for you.
It seems to me that I can feel the hurt in so many, is one of them you? I am praying, God is listening. Keep praying, reach out and touch Him!
