The last verse of Mark 6:
as many as touched him were made whole.
We must learn how to touch Him….. “My God shall supply all my needs.”
Whether it’s Healing, Comforting, Providing financial, physical, or spiritual needs, OUR GOD IS ABLE.
The Old Testament is full of testimonies of individuals, who learned how to touch the Lord.
They had a special relationship. One we should covet as our own.
Starting with Enoch, Noah, Abraham, Joseph, Moses, Joshua, Gideon, Samuel, David, Solomon….
All individuals, all for a time, walked with and touched the Lord, and the will of God went forth in Power.
In the time of Moses, the people feared to deal with the Lord, personally. They wanted to hear what God wanted, through a Mediator.
When Jesus came, He changed the rules.
Now, all of us are “to come boldly to the throne room of Grace, to receive Mercy and find Grace in our times of need.” (Hebrews 4)
We should learn from the Old Testament, the Word tells us:
2 Chronicles 16:9
“For the eyes of the Lord run to and fro throughout the whole earth, to shew himself strong in the behalf of them whose heart is perfect toward him.”
We find God stepping in to keep Abimelech, from sinning with Sarah, when Abraham, claimed she was his sister.
“God said unto him in a dream, Yea, I know that thou didst this in the integrity of thy heart; for I also withheld thee from sinning against me: therefore suffered I thee not to touch her.” (Genesis 20)
The integrity of his heart, touched God, and God, kept him from sin.
The Lord is watching us today, Wanting to show Himself strong, for those whose hearts are perfect towards Him.
Any chance your heart is perfect towards Him? What does that mean?
It is interesting, we can fail to do the right thing, yet have a perfect heart. We can also do the right thing, and miss the mark.
