Reach out and touch Him

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.

Keep praying, reach out and touch Him!

About harolene

Thank you for stopping by for a visit! If you read my thoughts you will see that I am sometimes serious, at other times sappy or funny, occasionally I am sad and sentimental, but I am always sincere! I am a single mother who raised two children, born ten years apart and different sexes so first it was bows and dolls, pretty dresses and boys! When my son was born it was rough and tumble games, baseball, soccer, wrestling and girls! I am known for my "smile" and for my default answer to any situation, "no problem", which was something I didn't realize I did until it was pointed out to me! I am a moon watcher and a star gazer. I am astounded and feel so small knowing that every creature that has ever walked the face of this earth has gazed upon that same beautiful orb that my eyes can behold on any night when the earth is not wearing her cloak of clouds. My parents have made me the person that I am. Their love, veracity in all areas of life, humor and passion for their work and each other have given me hope that my life can actually be a happy one! Chances are if you are reading this you already know all this but again, I appreciate your stopping by! While you're here hit the "Like" button for me and thanks for checking in!
