Day 2: The Touch Of Faith
It makes SENSE. Total SENSE.
As FAITH is all about the
SENSE of TOUCH
FAITH takes someone who is at the end of herself to take the RISK
because FAITH is action that reaches out to TOUCH where FAITH makes impossible possible~
"She said to herself, 'If I only touch HIS cloak, I will be healed' (Matthew 9:21)."
And FAITH made her do it~
"She came up behind HIM and TOUCHED the edge of HIS cloak,
and immediately her bleeding stopped"*
And HE SENSED her~
“Who touched me?” JESUS asked.*
But HE not only felt her~
"But JESUS said, 'Someone touched ME; I know that power has gone out from ME'."*
It all makes SENSE.
HE didn't SEE her. HE didn't HEAR her.
But HE felt her.
Not HIS FAITH but her FAITH is what it took to
go beyond the SENSES of HEARING & SEEING.
IF ONLY goes beyond the words and takes action.
FAITH SEES HIM
FAITH HEARS HIM
FAITH BELIEVES IN HIM.
"Then the woman, seeing that she could not go unnoticed, came trembling and fell at HIS feet.
In the presence of all the people, she told why she had touched HIM
and how she had been instantly healed"* (Luke 8:43-48)
FAITH never bothers JESUS.
FAITH always is a great interruption for JESUS.
HE is going in one direction
and then HE stops for you
right where you are
in the midst of what you are feeling & doing & being
FAITH takes you to the space & place
where you meet JESUS
one on one
even in the midst of a crowd of crowds
all reaching out to TOUCH HIM too~
"Everyone tried to touch HIM, because healing power went out from HIM,
and HE healed everyone" (Luke 6:19).
Because JESUS is so personal in the moment
to what you need
that HE stops just for you & for me,
and all at the same time,
yet it feels as if you are the only one in the room
as HE speaks to you
HIS SENSES go beyond just SEEING & HEARING
as HE takes a moment to speak to you~
"Then HE said to you, '___________", your faith has healed you. Go in peace'."
Go ahead. Put your name in the blank.
It is for you & me & everyone else who
has THE FAITH to TOUCH HIM.
FAITH reaches out into the unknown to the KNOWN.
THE FAITH OF FAITH
TOUCHES the ONE who TOUCHES you.
What do you want? What do you need?
What if all your wants and needs can be met right now
and all it takes
is THE STEP OF FAITH
to "TOUCH THE SKY" (listen to the song below)~
