Receive a Touch from the Lord

Posted on Posted in devotions

“Jesus reached out and touched him. “I am willing,” he said. “Be healed!” And instantly the leprosy disappeared.” (Matthew 8:3, NLT).

One evening while praying with a dear sister of mine, I felt a warmth on my chest. It was like no other feeling I had ever felt before. I knew it was a touch from the Lord to my heart, and immediately I began to cry because only God knew that I was dealing with chest pains and some unresolved issues in my life. Not too long after that warm loving touch, God brought healing and restoration. Praise the Lord. I had always heard that one touch from God changes everything, but now I am witness that it is true.

God will touch your mind so that it is no longer confused.

God will touch your heart and mend what is broken.

God will touch your ears so you can hear Him more clearly.

God will touch your eyes so you can see His truth.

God will touch your physical body and bring healing and wholeness.

God will touch your life and cause EVERYTHING the enemy meant for your bad, to turn around for your good.


Where does a touch from the Lord take place? For me, it was while I was praying for my sister to receive a breakthrough in her life. For you, it may be while you are surrendering to God in worship or while you are washing the dishes. It can take place whenever and wherever God sees fit. He is still in the miracle-working business and He wants to touch you and change everything.

Prayer: Father God, thank you for speaking to me. I need a touch from you. Touch my life. Touch my mind. Touch my heart. If you don’t change it, it can’t be changed. If you don’t do it, nothing can be done. I am totally surrendered to you. Remove all doubt and touch me with your warm loving hand. In Jesus name, Amen.
