One Word, One Touch!
Verse for Today: Thursday, October 31, 2013
Mark 10:49 – Jesus stopped and said, “Call him.” So they called to the blind man, “Cheer up! On your feet! (Jesus) is calling you.”
On our way each day, we meet people who have dire emotional, spiritual and physical needs. But we often do not recognize them. We do not have the time to look into their eyes to see the grief and anguish lingering in them. When we walk around, there is no one else who is looking into our eyes and seeing our distress and misery. Everyone is fighting battles and there is no one to show any kindness. The world has become a highway of hurting people who go around without finding a physician who can touch and heal them. In the hustle of modern busy life, there is still someone who has all the time in the world to stop for each and every one of us. He is Jesus the Son of Eternal God. He is the healer of all our hurts. He removes our handicaps and insufficiency. He makes us whole and restores our broken spirits and souls. He delivers us from our emotional entanglements in this insensitive world and gives us peace and rest. He has quality time for each of us to help us go through the process of healing. He calls us over the tumult and invites us to Him so that He can touch us. He comes to us and asks us to respond to Him by trusting Him to heal our lives. He works in our lives through the faith that He implants in our hearts through His Spirit. If we are willing to throw away all that entangles us and shed all our dependence on the world, we will be free to go to Jesus and get healed. Then we can help others by showing the way to go to Jesus.
Dear friend, are you struggling through the ebbs of this busy life without healing and wholeness? Are your life style, religious rituals, wealth, positions and prominence proving to be hindrances to getting spiritually and emotionally healed? Are you feeling lonely and frustrated in the bye lanes of this world and getting exasperated because of all that besets you in life? But there is no need to be in hopelessness. If you keenly listen, you will be able to hear the voice of the Great Physician inviting you to go to Him for total healing and wholeness. Jesus of Nazareth is passing your way. He has chosen your route so that you will get an opportunity to be touched by Him. He is willing to stop for you and will wait till your case is settled eternally. All you have to do is to respond to Jesus and go to Him with great expectations of faith and trust. He will honor your feeble faith. He will heal your broken heart and wounded emotions. He will restore your heartaches and turn your frustrations into bright hope. He will open your spiritual eyes and help you to walk by faith towards your eternal destination. He will be your travel companion every step of the way and will strengthen your feet to walk with Him by faith. Your tears will then become joy unspeakable. Your misery will turn to jubilation. Your loneliness will give way to fellowship with the Triune God. Your heartaches and anguishes will give way to celebrations of the love of God in your heart. Your life will center on the Rock of Ages who will sustain, support, strengthen and solidify you so that you can turn around to touch the broken-hearted, wounded, hurtful and suffering people around you for Jesus.
Matthew 11:28 – “Come to Me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest”.
