Your Word for 21 June 2024

Isaiah 12:2a
‘Surely God is my salvation; I will trust and not be afraid.’

In a very real sense, it is not possible to experience a touch from God and then stay the same. If you read the New Testament, every life that the Lord touched was changed.

2 Corinthians 3:16-18‘But whenever anyone turns to the Lord, the veil is taken away. 17 Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom. 18 And we, who with unveiled faces all reflect the Lord’s glory, are being transformed into His likeness with ever-increasing glory, which comes from the Lord, Who is the Spirit.’

A touch from the Master’s hand brings change to our lives. God wants to come and change us. God wants to step into our lives and the result is change. As we look into the face of God and reflect His glory, something happens within us, and change takes place. We are changed from glory to glory! This change and this glory comes from God and not from ourselves. God wants to come and change us and transform us.
He wants to transform us in our minds, in our hearts, and in our lives.

How often we settle for less than God’s best for our lives. We make peace with fear, anxiety, and stress, as if it is the best that we can do under the circumstances. The disciples locked themselves in a room thinking that it was all over, when in fact it was only just about to begin. What they didn’t realise was that they were moments away from a touch from God that would in effect give birth to the church and change the world. Don’t write yourself off and think that nothing can change. With one touch from the hand of God on your life, everything can change. Just as the Holy Spirit came and invaded the room where the disciples were hiding and everything changed, so as we allow the Lord and His precious Holy Spirit to come and invade our lives, everything can change. Be determined that you want to have a fresh touch from the Lord and ask Him to do just that. It may not come in the form or the preconceived idea you have as to how it should happen, but if we will just give Him right of way, He will do His perfect work in our lives.

Psalm 92:10‘I shall be anointed with fresh oil.’

Just like David, who wrote this Psalm, you can be confident and expectant that God wants to touch you afresh. Ask Him to do it and be ready to declare this scripture: ‘I shall be anointed with fresh oil.’ Lord, I pray for each person who is trusting You for a fresh touch. We realise how desperately we need Your touch in our lives and therefore we ask You to come, by Your Holy Spirit, and blow the very wind of heaven over our lives, our souls, our hearts, and our minds. May Your life-giving breath bring life back into our tired and weary souls. May we be FILLED with Your Holy Spirit and may we be changed according to Your plan and purpose for our lives. Amen.
