Throughout the Old Testament, the Lord chose what people He would call His own. Who He would save, or set free, who he would bless or curse.
How He would reward the Faithful, the Righteous and how and when to punish the wicked.
The Lord chose Noah, saving him and his family. Why, because Noah walked with God, this made “Noah a just man and perfect in his Generation.”
We find almost the same praise for Job, who, “was perfect and upright, and one that feared God, and eschewed evil.”
The Lord’s choice. He chose who, what, when, where and how, He would intervene in the afairs of the earth, and His people.
All, the Lords choice, with few exceptions, the Lords plan and way.
Then Jesus came to die for us.
We see a change a coming. He chose many He would touch, heal. Where He roamed, who He made whole.
The difference that becomes apparent is, Faith enters the stage. People ask, plead, and pray and it is their Faith makes them whole.
Yet, Jesus is still choosing whom He touches, but times have changed.
We should come boldly to the throne room, to find Grace and Mercy in our time of need. We need to become the woman with the issue of blood.
We must learn how to press through the throng of people and prayers that surround our Lord, we must learn to touch Him ourselves.
“All who touched Him, were made whole.“
We should no longer wait by the pool for the Angels, to move the water. No longer should we cry out… “Jesus touch me. Jesus hear me. Jesus meet my need.”
NO LONGER… QUIT ASKING HIM TO TOUCH YOU AND LEARN TO TOUCH HIM.
This is a Spiritual Truth.
If we just learn to Touch Him, His Word, His Promises, His Will…. become life and truth to whosoever will, learn to practice the presence of God.
The first step is to learn the lesson of the Lords prayer.
The first step in getting the attention of God, is true Praise, Adoration, Worship.
Start your prayers with acknowledgement of His Majesty, That His Word is Life, That He IS the great I AM.
He alone is worthy of all Glory, Honor and Praise. He alone is Worthy, He was slain from the foundation, He gave His life for ME.
WORTHY, WORTHY, WORTHY IS THE LAMB OF GOD, THE LORD GOD OF HOSTS, HEAVEN AND EARTH ARE FILLED WITH HIS GLORY. WORTHY IS THE LAMB.
I Worship You, I Love You, I Need You. You alone are my help, You alone are my supply, You alone are Worthy of my love and trust.
As we learn to express our Love, and Trust in the Lord… we will begin to experience the peace that passes understanding, the joy unspeakable and full of Glory.
We will not have to recite our worries and cares. He knows them and answers before we ask.
“Call unto me, and I will answer thee, and show thee great and mighty things, which thou knowest not.” (Jeremiah 33:3)
“And call upon me in the day of trouble: I will deliver thee, and thou shalt glorify me.” (Psalm 50:15)
“And it shall come to pass, that before they call, I will answer; and while they are yet speaking, I will hear.”
Please Saints take this first step to touching the Lord.
LEARN TO VERBALLY, TRUTHFULLY, AND FORCEFULLY ADORE AND WORSHIP HIM.
TELL HIM YOU LOVE HIM AND WHY… EXALT HIM.
Let’s forget about ourselves and concentrate on Him, and Worship Him.
We will soon learn to touch Him and receive the desires of our hearts.
