For God to visit an individual it means He has proposed to do something significant in that individual’s life and I am sure your life will never remain the same following His visitation. In Mark 8:22-25, Jesus and his disciples visited a place called Bethsaida and turned the life of an individual around. He visited and touched a blind man’s life and in the process left an indelible mark, one that could not be prevented; He touches to bring healing and undeniable transformation. Welcome to March! Your Month of Divine Touch! Mark 8:25 – After that he put his hands again upon his eyes, and made him look up; and he was restored, and saw every man clearly. May the Lord touch you and restore you to His original intention. May God touch you this season to terminate reproach from your life and may you receive the touch of restoration and fulfilment this month in the mighty name of Jesus.
One would see reading through the verses in the bible passage above that this blind man needed help and it took the intervention of ‘some people’ as we see in verse 22. These are helpers of destiny and would be similar to those who helped the paralytic man in Luke 5:17-26 and Mark 2: 1-12. This season God will bring your way helpers of destiny that will not rest until you fulfil your destiny and nothing will hinder them from locating you in Jesus name. When they brought this man to Jesus, He took him by hand and led Him out of the city (Mark 8:23); I pray that God Himself will lead you out of every form of stagnation and unpleasant situation. You will no longer be unproductive but you will make accelerated progress from every standpoint in Jesus name. Wherever you are positioned that is hindering your glory, God will re-position you in Jesus name. After Jesus did the miracle, the man looked up (Mark 8:24); beloved where you look could determine where you will end in life, stop looking at the size of your problems, stop looking down on yourself because when you look down, you will only continue to wallow in self-pity, frustration and hopelessness. Stop looking at the boisterousness of the storm, that can only have an undesirable effect, remember Peter in Matt.14:30. When the blind man looked up, he saw for the first time. His situation changed no wonder we have been encouraged to look up to Jesus the author and the finisher of our faith (Heb. 12:2), the solution provider, the defeater of problems, the source of our power, our teacher. Let Him be your main focus.
The man began to see as soon as he looked up but that wasn’t the end of the story. Beloved sometimes we must learn to say it to God as it is, only then could there be perfection of our testimony. Be willing to open your mouth in prayer and tell God your problems. Do not hide your true situation from The One that can help you! If you have been touched before I pray you will receive the final touch this season – the touch of perfection; the touch that will take away reproach of whatever form or size. When Jesus touches you whatever is not enough becomes more than enough, every form of down trend is removed instead what you get is restoration, abundance, progress, joy and the likes. This season, the touch of God will locate you and there will be evidence of that touch in Jesus name. His touch will cause you to continue to swim in glory for the rest of your life in Jesus name. Shalom!
