One Touch [Day1]

I've been inspired in my heart to start writing devotionals. I'd love to be able to write them daily, but I don't know if I will have the time. (I know, I act like I am busy or something, lol!) I have been seeking God's face this morning because I have this inspiration, but I don't have anything pouring out of me to share with  you. The only thing He keeps blessing me with is the song 'One Touch' by Nicole C. Mullen. If you haven't heard it, I definitely recommend listening to it.

In this song, Nicole C. Mullen tells the story of the woman with the issue of blood. 

Matthew 9 describes a woman that had been subject to bleeding for 12 years. She was sick. And she was desperate. She had tried everything to find healing. She'd spent all of her money. Used all of her resources. In the song, Mullen tells it from the woman's perspective. She sings, "Been ostracized for 12 years, I'm used to being alone. Spent every thing I had and now it's gone. I'm used to being put down, my issues tell it all. My only hope is anchored in this fall..." 

She'd exhausted everything. She had no answer. She was cast away. No one wanted her. No one spent time with her. She was suffering... and was forced to do it alone. But she had heard about this Man named Jesus... and how He had a power unlike any other. She had FAITH. In Matthew 9, she said "If I only touch His cloak, I will be healed!" "If I could just touch the hem of His garment I know I'd be made whole. If I could just press my way through this madness, His love would heal my soul."

She had FAITH.

She pushed through a crowd of people to get her blessing. Was she afraid of their looks? Was she afraid of the words they would speak about her? I'm sure of it. We go through the same thing in today's society. "What will they think of me? What if they find out? Will they want to speak to me again? How will I look? I'm not pretty enough. I'm not outgoing enough. I'm not brave enough."

Are you in need of a miracle today? Do you need a financial blessing? A physical healing? An emotional restoration? If so, are you desperate enough to push past the hurtful people in your life? Are you desperate enough to push aside the hateful words people speak? How bad do you want that miracle? 

Take your faith... and use it. Run to Him! Touch Him! He's waiting for it... We know He can do it. We know He has the power. That isn't up for discussion. What is up for discussion is your faith in the matter. The woman with the issue of blood had an immense amount of faith. She didn't say, "Oh, I will just pray and hopefully He does it." She said, "I'm going to press my way through this crowd and I AM going to touch Him.. and I know He WILL heal me when I do!" 

As soon as she touched Jesus, He knew. He turned around... and saw this woman that had been left behind. This woman with scars. This woman with a less-than-perfect past. This woman with a need. He was merciful. He saw the pain. He saw the need. He saw the desperation.

And He healed.

She was healed in that one moment.

She was healed in that moment of faith.

Are you desperate for something today?

Well, you're in luck, because He sees it. He sees your hurt, baby. He sees your pain. Get up. Run to Him. Touch Him. Push through whatever pain and madness that is in your way. Are you desperate for something? Tell Him. Seek Him. Do whatever it takes to reach Him! If you want your miracle bad enough, you won't let anything stand in your way. She didn't....

and you shouldn't either, baby. Your too precious to Him to let anything stand between you . He loves you more than you could possibly imagine. Tell Him about your pain. Tell Him about the issue. Tell Him about your hurt. Tell Him about the struggles. He cares. He's listening.

Just touch Him.
