And all who touched Him [Jesus] were healed. –Matthew 14:36 NLT
What is ailing you, my brother or sister? What has robbed you from the peace and joy the Lord Jesus has imparted on you? We have a Savior who loves us and watches out for us- a Savior who never sleeps. With just one wave of His loving hand, Jesus calmed a raging storm; with one command the storm ceased. What authority!
When troubles of any type come, we often get scared and confused. We fear the out- come of negative situations in our lives, thus all peace and joy are taken away from us. The good news is that we have the Lion of the tribe of Judah, mighty in power and glory, to fight our battles and to calm the raging sea of fear, confusion, pain, and de- spondency. Do not let the enemy have the upper hand in your situation. Remember, bigger is He—Jesus—who is in us than the enemy in the world. My beloved friend, let’s reach out to the Author and Perfecter (Hebrews 12:2) of our lives and experience with just one touch the deliverance from the raging storms in our lives.
- Lord, help our unbelief in times of trouble, and let us keep our gaze on You and not the storms in our lives.
- Help us, Lord, not to lose sight of You as we go through times of trouble and fear.
