Divine touch is a heavenly touch, it is touch of power and a transforming touch. It a touch that produces change and it is different from an ordinary touch of a friend, a spouse or colleagues. A touch could be by laying of hand or through spoken word, deeds or action.
This morning we shall examine some distinct divine touches that were revealed in the Holy Scripture.
In Genesis 32:24-26, Jacob was coming back from the foreign country where he had gone to live after a strained relationship with his brother Esau. His brother Esau was determined to revenge and so he went with his men to meet Jacob, however while Jacob was waiting a man began to wrestle with him, and he wrestle with the angel of God, and at day break when he prevails, the angel of the Lord touches his hip and gave him a new name. This touch of God on Jacob settles the problem between him and his brother. His brother Esau rather than destroying him welcomes him with open arm.
In exodus when God decided to deliver the children of Israel from the hard bondage of pharaoh, He does so by many signs and wonder such that in Exodus 8:19, the Egyptian magicians confessed "This is the finger of God"(Ex. 8:19). I don’t know the problem you are going through now or the hard bondage you are serving, but I know you are coming out victorious, according to Isaiah 14:3-5 which says "It shall come to pass in the day the LORD gives you rest from your sorrow, and from your fear and the hard bondage in which you were made to serve, that you will take up this proverb against the king of Babylon, and say how the oppressor has ceased, The golden city ceased. The LORD has broken the staff of the wicked, the scepter of the rulers".
In 1 Kings 19, the Bible talks about the touch of God upon Elijah, Elijah was discouraged, he was depressed, he wished he was dead, he felt it was over and while resting under a Juniper tree, he received a touch from heaven (verse 5). This touch of God raised him up and what a great ministry followed after that divine touch. Any area of your ministry that is dead will come alive with a touch from heaven in Jesus name
In Mark 5:25-34 a certain woman had a flow of blood for twelve years, and had suffered many things from many physicians. She had spent all that she had and was no better, but rather grew worse. Imagine the feeling of hopelessness and desperation. Maybe you are here today in this same hopelessness situation like this woman, I have good news for you, the divine touch of the almighty God will reach you today in the name of Jesus Christ. God is never late, we live in the natural that is controlled by time but God lives in the supernatural where time is by control. It doesn’t matter how long you have been in this situation, when the perfect time of God meet with your natural time it will result in a divine appointment. Somebody here today is having a divine appointment with destiny.
In Mark 1:40-41, the Bible says "Now a leper came to Him, imploring Him, kneeling down to Him and saying to Him, If You are willing, You can make me clean"
Then Jesus, moved with compassion, stretched out His hand and touched him, and said to him, "I am willing, be cleansed", and it was recorded that instantly the man was cleansed. Whatever the leprosy you are experiencing today, either physical or spiritual, a touch from heaven will cleansed you today in Jesus name
In Mark 10:46, Am sure you know about the blind man that came to Jesus and Jesus asked him what he wanted,the man replied Jesus requesting that he may receive his sight, And the Lord touches him and he receives his sight. Jesus is the great physician, if you are sick today, God will heal you.
In Luke chapter 7, there was a widow in a city called Nain, she had only one son, and this single son died. Am sure you know that such a woman will be unhappy, sorrowful. And as they were going to bury this young man, they meet the Lord. Today you will meet the Lord. As they met the Lord, sorrow came to an end, all the oppression in the heart came to an end. How did that happen? Jesus stretches out his hand and he touched the coffin and the man got up and he became alive again. As you receive the touch of God today, everything that is dead in you and your ministry shall come alive in Jesus name.
