A touch for wholeness!
Verse for Today: Saturday, November 12, 2011
Psalms 107:20 – He sent His Word and healed them, and delivered them from their destructions.
God expresses His concern for His people through action. He is watchful of His people and knows their problems as they go along. He has the right answer to all their problems and needs. His actions are personal with direct involvement in each case. When God’s people are sick, He becomes their physician and panacea. He appears to touch their bodies and minds to take away their weaknesses and infirmities. Their sin sickness has been healed forever and their bodies and souls are purchased by and for Him. When they are sick in their bodies, He gives them healing to keep serving Him and His cause here on earth. The health that He grants His children is always for them to serve Him and not to serve the cause of this world. When they are in the pits of life experiences like frustration, failure, loneliness, persecution, oppression, grief, misrepresentation or rejection, He comes to pick them up and give them hope in our souls. He renews His promises to us and gives us the reassurance that His Word will never loose its power in our lives. When the world tries to defeat us, Jesus comes to lead us into victory. He helps us to overcome rejection through His friendship and fellowship. When we are frustrated, He becomes our encouragement. When we face persecution, He gives us the grace to go through it without murmuring. When we are oppressed in our bodies and minds, He gives us release of our souls and spirits. In our lonely hours, He becomes our best friend. When we encounter grief, He comes to wipe our tears with His own Hands. When we are misrepresented, the Lord becomes our righteousness in His presence and declares our innocence. When the enemy tries to destroy us, the Lord comes to renew and revive us in the newness of life.
Dear reader, are you encountered with emotional or physical infirmities because of the negative responses of the world around you? Is the enemy of your soul trying to cast clouds around you and make your situation dark and damp? Perhaps the enemy comes to tell you that there is no hope for you and that you are in a pit from which you will never come up. Don’t you believe this lie from the father of lies? Your Lord has become victorious over all the negative elements in your situation and He is with you to give you victory over all your situations on a daily basis. He opens doors for you when you are shut in by the situations. He brings light into your dark valleys to brighten you up. Remember, you are the light of the world! You have the light in our soul because Jesus, the Light of the World, is living in your heart and life. If you look at Jesus, your life will brighten up and you will shine for Him. So when situations become dark, oppressive and discouraging, you can call on the name of the Lord and claim victory over your situations in that name. Then you will experience a floodgate of peace, love and grace. Praise will then flood in your heart for the victory He gives you. Right now, it is good to go to the presence of the Lord and ask for His hands to touch you and give you such a renewal in your soul. Then fountains of praise will flow from your heart to the Lord. Even when you do not know why your situation is so dark and cloudy, you can praise Him because He knows why you are going through such experiences. Today it is your privilege to appropriate the touch of the Lord in your life and experience His healing and lifting up in your soul.
Romans 8:28 – And we know that God causes all things to work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose.
